#ESTONIA: US Ambassador To Estonia Resigns Over Trump Rhetoric On #EU, #NATO

[world politics news]

The U.S. ambassador to Estonia has resigned over Pres. Trump's comments about the European Union and his treatment of European allies. In a private Facebook message posted Friday, James D. Melville wrote: "For the President to say EU was 'set up to take advantage of the United States, to attack our piggy bank,' or that 'NATO is as bad as NAFTA' is not only factually wrong, but proves to me that it's time to go." Melville had served since 2015.
