U.S. Ambassador to Panama John Feeley has resigned, telling the State Department he “can no longer serve under the Trump administration.”

“As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies. My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come,” Feeley said, according to an excerpt of his resignation letter read to Reuters, CNBC reports.

A State Department spokeswoman confirmed Feeley’s resignation, saying that he “has informed the White House, the Department of State, and the Government of Panama of his decision to retire for personal reasons, as of March 9 of this year.”

Freely, a career diplomat and former Marine Corps helicopter pilot joins the long list of officials exiting the Trump administration. Trump is increasingly isolating not only himself but this country, too, as he lashes out at foreign leaders and nations. Working for Trump’s toxic administration can’t be good for a person’s resume. Freely’s resignation follows Trump’s jaw-dropping comments deeming African nations and Haiti to be “shithole countries.” It has to be difficult to represent the U.S. when its leader is lashing out wildly at other countries just to advance his agenda.
