This is explosive information that just came in. People all across the country are in shock because for sure, this move means something important and shady is going on. Apparently, as a result of the President’s disagreements with Qatar, the US Ambassador of Qatar officially resigned.

“THIS MONTH, I END MY 3 YEARS AS U.S. AMBASSADOR TO #QATAR. IT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST HONOR OF MY LIFE AND I’LL MISS THIS GREAT COUNTRY,” AMBASSADOR DANA SHELL SMITH TWEETED. THERE ARE MANY INTERPRETATIONS OF HER TWEET, AND EVERYONE COMES WITH THEIR OWN OPINION ON SMITH’S TWEET. WE CAN ONLY SAY THAT THIS IS SOMETHING WE SAW COMING, AND THE SITUATION DOESN’T LOOK QUITE WELL FOR QATAR.
CNBS’S JOHN HARWOOD ARGUED THAT SMITH DECIDED TO RESIGN OVER THE PRESIDENT’S ROW WITH QATAR.
FORMER PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA APPOINTED THE CAREER DIPLOMAT, AND THE SENATE CONFIRMED HER IN JULY 2014. THE STATE DEPARTMENT CONFIRMED THAT SHE WILL LEAVE THE FOREIGN SERVICE EARLIER THIS YEAR, AND WILL LEAVE QATAR WITHIN THE REGULAR ROTATION.
“AMBASSADOR DANA SMITH’S ASSIGNMENT AS AMBASSADOR COMES TO AN END THIS MONTH AND SHE WILL DEPART QATAR LATER THIS MONTH AS PART OF THE NORMAL ROTATION OF CAREER DIPLOMATS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. WE WISH HER THE BEST AS SHE MOVES ON FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF STATE,” A STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIAL STATED.
THE AMBASSADOR CRITICIZED PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION RIGHT BEFORE THE PRESIDENT MADE HIS COMMENTS ON QATAR.
“INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO WAKE UP OVERSEAS TO NEWS FROM HOME, KNOWING I WILL SPEND TODAY EXPLAINING OUR DEMOCRACY AND INSTITUTIONS,” SMITH TWEETED.
Smith’s resignation was not quite expected. The President was very clear when it comes to Qatar. He publicly said that this country funds a terrorist organization. Many diplomatic ties from that moment on were cut from Qatar so this has to be tied somehow.
