Secret figures from President Donald Trump’s base are pushing difficult for him to choose U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to be the next U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Breitbart News has found out.
The opening comes as previous Fox News host and State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert all of a sudden and all of a sudden withdrew herself from consideration after President Trump had actually previously nominated her to fill the vacant post left by Trump’s very first appointee in the slot, previous South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
” I’m a huge fan of Ambassador Grenell,” Corey Lewandowski, President Trump’s one-time campaign manager and a strong protector of the president and his program, informed Breitbart News on Saturday night. “He has actually served the President of the United States with difference in Germany and would make a great ambassador to the U.N.”
Lewandowski was barely alone. Dr. Sebastian Gorka, a former project assistant and hard-charging former White House authorities who when was Breitbart News national security editor, added in a statement to Breitbart News that he thinks Grenell would be terrific for the post now that Nauert is out of the picture.
” Ric Grenell needs to be remembered and chosen forthwith for the U.N. post,” Gorka told Breitbart News. “He has actually been the President’s most reliable ambassador bar none. The very best feature of his nomination is that with his rock strong MAGA qualifications the globalist America-haters at the U.N. will be placed on notice.”
David Bossie, who acted as Trump’s deputy project manager in the basic election in 2016 and stays a faithful and close outside ally of the president, told Breitbart News that Grenell would be a great pick given his experience in Germany but likewise his prior experience at the United Nations, where he served for many years. Grenell was the longest-serving U.S. representative at the United Nations as well, serving under several different ambassadors including Trump’s current National Security Adviser John Bolton.
” Rick Grenell means America in Germany and would do an excellent job at the United Nations,” Bossie stated. “Grenell’s unabashed belief in President Trump’s America Frist foreign policy would make him a wonderful UN Ambassador. Rick Grenell has comprehensive experience at the United Nations and would bring a depth of understanding to strike the ground running.”
Former White Home Press Secretary Sean Spicer tweeted his support for Grenell on Saturday night:

Andrew Surabian, another previous White Home authorities who now encourages Donald Trump, Jr., likewise tweeted his support for Grenell:

So did Charlie Kirk, the president and founder of Turning Point U.S.A.– another close ally of President Trump’s whom the president frequently retweets– supported Grenell as well:
The President must appoint his most faithful and effective Ambassador to the UN, Ric Grenell!
He is a dear good friend, wise, and gets things done
A big easy win for @realDonaldTrump– let’s bring Ric to the UN!

As did Arthur Schwartz, another close ally of the White House and Trump, Jr., who was just recently profiled by the Daily Monster in a piece that detailed how he viciously battles back versus fake news, the facility, and anti-Trump forces::
I can’t call another ambassador that has actually done as much as Ric. The majority of people could not even call another ambassador. https://t.co/krtPXCbUmD

Grenell, who is honestly gay, has actually been serving for about a year. His verification was originally obstructed by some Democrats, however he won large bipartisan assistance in the end in the U.S. Senate in his confirmation vote– validated with 56 votes in early 2018 when Republicans just had a 51- seat bulk. Republicans now have a 53- seat majority in the Senate, meaning anyone who hit margins in the mid-to-high-50 s in votes last Congress would likely sail through the Senate this go-around.
Grenell has been an ardent fighter for Trump’s program in Germany, pressing the president’s view on whatever from trade to immigration to combating extremism. He even helped the president secure an offer deporting the last-known Nazi left in the United States back to Germany– something Germans had withstood under previous administrations, implying Trump was able to secure a victory against anti-Semitism that Barack Obama and George W. Bush were never able to.
It stays to be seen what President Trump will do now that Nauert is out, but he has couple of allies as qualified as Grenell in the diplomatic arena.
