Acting Asst. Sec. Susan Thornton and EAP team en route to her nomination hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee!
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to eliminate more than half the U.S. special envoys including the climate change envoy as part of his State Department overhaul.
Tillerson notified Congress in his a letter on Monday. His letter says 30 of the current 66 envoys or "special representatives" will stay. The rest of the envoys, their staffs and budgets will be absorbed into other offices or combined with other positions.
There will no longer be envoys for the Iran nuclear deal or closing the Guantanamo Bay prison. Tillerson is keeping envoys for religious freedom, fighting anti-Semitism and LGBT rights.
Thank you for the information...LOL Tif
Good for him, except for the LGBT "rights", that someone somewhere just simply invented.
"Rights" come from our Creator, and He did not make "rights" for people who do not know what sex they are.
Amen-Amein too him, he is a Conservative Patriot!!
