Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: January of 2017
Categories: Donald Trump
Four top diplomats who served at the State Department for years resigned en masse mere days into Donald Trump's Presidency. Undersecretary for management Patrick Kennedy, who has worked for both Republican and Democratic Administrations, went first and was quickly followed by Assistant Secretary of State for Administration Joyce Anne Barr, Assistant Secretary of State for Consular Affairs Michele Bond and Ambassador Gentry O. Smith, director of the Office of Foreign Missions. The mass exodus has left major positions that require Senate approval empty.
