President-elect Donald Trump’s team has ordered all politically appointed ambassadors in overseas posts to get out by Inauguration Day, several diplomats were cited saying in a new report published.

Axar.az reports citing to New York Times.

Most diplomats interviewed in the New York Times report said it made perfect sense for Obama-appointed diplomats to leave their posts as the president they represent leaves his, but no one could recall an instance when such a strict timeline was used. The State Department previously told all politically appointed ambassadors to submit their resignations by Jan. 20, though they had the option of seeking to extend their term. Ronald E. Neumann, the president of the American Academy of Diplomacy and a career Foreign Service officer, was cited by the NYT saying, “I don’t recollect there was ever a guillotine in January where it was just, ‘Everybody out of the pool immediately.’” Diplomats familiar with the situation said the mandate was quite harsh, and issued “without exceptions” in a cable sent on Dec. 23. It threatens to leave several countries without U.S. envoys for months and make allies nervous at the abrupt and drastic policy change.
