‼️Richard Grenell

10/3/19: Trump has selected the U.S. amb to Germany, Richard Grenell, as the Trump adm’s envoy for ongoing “peace talks” between Serbian and Kosovan officials.

📌Note: Dirty Tricksters Whitaker & Nunberg are busy bees in Kosovo

I bet Grenell been sent to meddle in the upcoming election to install Kadri Veseli as Prime Minister.

Veseli is the founder of the KLA & fmr head of SHIK. SHIK was an underground intelligence organization credited with post-war murders of political figures in Kosovo.
Grenell, who will remain as ambassador to Germany in addition to his new duties, will lead U.S. efforts to assist Serbia and Kosovo to reach a “formal peace agreement” that could result in Serbia's recognition of Kosovo as an independent nation. #SureJan

Remember folks, Grenell got off to a very rocky start as Amb to German.

Hours into his new job, Richard Grenell, Trump’s ambassador to Germany offends his hosts.
"This man was accredited as ambassador only yesterday.”

“To give German businesses such orders … that’s just not how you can treat your allies.”

TeamTrump’s “charm” is legendary amongst our allies. 🙄

📌In June 2018, German politicians have criticised Grenell, Trump’s ambassador to Germany after he said he wanted to “empower” anti-establishment rightwing forces throughout Europe.

📌Huge no no for Ambassors to meddle in host country’s politics.
📌In an interview with the far-right news outlet Breitbart, Richard Grenell, who then had been in office for less than a month, said: “I absolutely want to empower other conservatives throughout Europe, other leaders."

📌Grenell's TV interview was a thinly veiled call for a change of government in Berlin.

It was akin to a German amb in DC attacking the US president's immigration policy on German public television & then touting PM Justin Trudeau as a role model.
🔑This was described as a breach of diplomatic protocol and a breach of Article 41 of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which requires ambassadors to be politically neutral in the domestic politics of the countries where they serve.
🔑Martin Schulz, former leader of the SDP of Germany, said, "What this man is doing is unheard of in int’l diplomacy.

🔑If a German ambassador were to say in DC that he is there to boost the Democrats, he would have been kicked out immediately."
The leader of LW party Linke, Sahra Wagenknecht, said Berlin should immediately get rid of Grenell. “Someone like U.S. Amb Grenell, who thinks he can lord over Europe and determine who is governing here, he can no longer stay in Germany as a diplomat,”
🔑America’s Trumpiest Ambassador

To conservatives, Richard Grenell is the poster child of a Trumpian foreign policy.

To critics, he is a shallow ideologue.
📌Just a few years ago, Grenell was best-known in U.S. political circles as a right-wing internet troll—hectoring journalists on Twitter, lobbing personal insults at perceived adversaries, and preaching zealously to the Fox News faithful
📌Appearing at an event on Iran on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, Grenell made clear that he was still deeply ensconced on the Trump Train.
📌Grenell lashed out at European leaders for offering economic lifelines to Tehran and being slow to blame it for recent strikes on Saudi oil facilities.
📌Grenell’s ascent from Internet troll to Amb has proved polarizing.

📌To conservative fans, he is the poster child for a new Trumpian style of foreign policy—an amb who is unconstrained by protocol & who has no use for accommodation or politesse. #Mob

🔑To his many critics, he is a shallow ideologue who’s shown little interest in good-faith engagement, preferring instead to bash & dash—attacking his host country’s gov’t on Twitter before retreating to his villa in the Dahlem district of west Berlin.
🔑In other words Grenell now appointed envoy to Kosovo to assist in installing Veseli as PM.

🔑Grenell is nothing but a glorified Trump Troll eager to implement TeamTrump’s shadow foreign policy by meddling/subverting his host country politics any way he can in service to TOC.
