Sixty per cent of career ambassadors have either retired or resigned since Donald Trump took office. The loss of so many senior officers has a serious effect on the ability of America to influence world events.

Idiocracy will prevail, and America become the laughing stock of the world.

I can't even imagine what kind of person would be willing to work for him or his administration. For one thing, he's no doubt going to take a lot of his staffers down with him and we all know he won't hesitate to throw anyone under the bus, probably even his own kids other than his precious Ivanka.
