Buy car in DR

No US envoy to Dominican Republic for now

Santo Domingo.- Last week, United States President Joe Biden withdrew Calvin Smyre’s nomination as United States Ambassador to the Dominican Republic, and remitted his appointment under the same position in The Bahamas.

After withdrawing the nomination, Biden did not name another person for the position in the DR, leaving the post vacant.

On the subject, Adriano Espaillat, a Dominican representative in NY, and a member of the US Congress, the place where these nominations made by the president are approved.

“The president understood that Smyre would do a better job in The Bahamas than in the Dominican Republic, and that’s why he made the change,” Espaillat said.

The congressman also said that, for the time being, Biden will not nominate a new ambassador to the country.

“There is no one on the list and there has been no discussion.”

when was the last time the US sent a professional embassador to the DR? the 60s? all of the recent embassadors have been campaign “donors” or “friends” of the president. Trump sent his real state agent for crist sake.

US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttieg will receive the nomination from the Liberal Left once he is finished with his maternity leave.

Washington has more on its plate than it possibly can handle rapidly at this time. The RD will have to take a back seat for now.

The Democrats don’t care about the Dominican Republic which is the only reason why we don’t have an ambassador 16 months after Biden taking office. Maybe it has to do with Abinader government special treatment with the Chinese.

Gladly. We don’t need much more meddling from the US. Time for them to take a back seat.

This show how much appreciation the Biden administration has for the Dominican Republic. During Obama time in office we didn’t had an ambassador in the country for over 4 years and now Biden has 16 months in office and no Ambassador to this country.
