|Richard Grenell has been a disaster as Trump's ambassador to Germany.|
It would seem that almost anyone associated with Trump becomes a disaster. Even a member of the LGBTQ community.
Donald Trump’s ambassador to Germany has been a complete “failure” according to German politicians who want to expel the gay diplomat from the country. Wolfgang Kubicki, deputy chairman of the opposition Free Democrats (FDP), has called on Foreign Minister Heiko Maas to revoke Grennell’s credentials and boot him out of the country. Kubicki decried Grennell’s repeated interferences in German sovereignty by inserting himself into internal political affairs. “Any US diplomat who acts like a high commissioner of an occupying power must learn that our tolerance also knows its limits,” Kubicki said.
. . . Carsten Schneider, caucus manager of the Social Democrats (SPD), echoed Kubicki’s comments, telling reporters “Mr Grenell is a complete diplomatic failure.” “Mr Grenell damages trans-Atlantic relations with his repeated clumsy provocations,” he added. Chancellor Angela Merkel deliberately avoids him. She hasn’t received him in Berlin, despite being in close contact with Grennell’s predecessor, former Ambassador and now-New Jersey governor, Phil Murphy.
Grenell wasn't popular to begin with. One would think he would have worked to dispel negative notions of himself. Not prove them to be accurate. By the way, Grenell was the same official who was spearheading the supposed Trump Administration initiative to decriminalize homosexuality across the globe.
The same initiative Trump seemed to know nothing about.
