US ambassador to Estonia to resign over Trump insults

Donald Trump ‘s comments about America’s Europan allies have prompted the US ambassador to Estonia to resign.

James D Melville Jr, a career diplomat who serves as the US ambassador to the eastern European country, told friends and family in a private Facebook post that he was cutting his 33 year career as a senior foreign service member short after the president attacked NATO and said that European Union (EU) allies are taking advantage of the US.

“A Foreign Service Officer’s DNA is programmed to support policy and we’re schooled right from the start, that if there ever comes a point where one can no longer do so, particularly if one is in a position of leadership, the honourable course is to resign.

“Having served under six presidents and 11 secretaries of state, I never really thought it would reach that point for me,” Mr Melville wrote in the post, which was acquired by Foreign Policy magazine.
