Due to the timing of his announcement, one would think it was because of the grotesque comments Trump made about certain countries being shitholes( which Trump denies he said).

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 let the White House, the State Department, and the Panamanian government know he was leaving for personal reasons and March 9th will be his last day. He also states in his resignation letter that the relationship between the U.S. and Panama is a strong one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feeley became the ambassador in January 2016 and Deputy Chief of Mission Roxanne Cabral will fill in for him until a new ambassador is named.

According to reports, Broadcast journalist usually tread lightly on topics such as racism, as it can be seen differently to different people. But, Lemon, as well as Anderson Cooper, who doubled down on the declaration, used the CNN platform to let Americans know that “We told you so.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The powerful statement by Lemon, propelled a Trumpisracist hashtag on Twitter. While many Americans used the tag to denounce Trump’s racist remarks, Trump supporters and Twitter bots, used the hashtag to defend the Celebrity-in-Chief. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Trump has denied making comments that have reportedly been blown out of proportion by the media, lawmakers who were in attendance did not deny the “shithole” remark. In fact, some of Trump’s Fox News friends defended the statement, questing the need for immigration if the countries that immigrants are leaving aren’t “shithole” countries. What are your thoughts?

However, the administration is not required to process new applications. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In response, the Administration condemned the Alsup’s ruling with the White House press secretary calling it “outrageous.” Meanwhile, Trump took his frustrations to Twitter, tweeting, "It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and almost always wins before being reversed by higher courts.” However, others believe this is a huge step in the right direction.
