The Guardian reports:
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, a close political ally of President Donald Trump, has resigned after little more than two years in the job, an embassy spokesman said on Tuesday.
“Ambassador Grenell resigned from his post and the State Department on June 1,” said the spokesman.
Robin Quinville, deputy chief of mission at the embassy, will take over as Charge d’Affaires until a new ambassador is confirmed but the spokesman said any questions on Grenell’s successor should be directed to the White House.
Grenell has spent the last few days trolling relentlessly on Twitter, attacking journalists that report on Trump’s racist actions.
