After two years in office, he stops.2 Kommentare2Auftritt in Geneva, the German is not particularly popular: Richard Grenell 2019, in Geneva, on the occasion of a Demonstration against the UN human rights Council.Photo: Keystone/Salvatore Di Nolfi

After a good two years in office, Richard is kicked Grenell as the U.S. Ambassador to Germany. His Post has temporarily taken over his Deputy Robin Quinville, as Embassy spokesman Joseph Giordono-Scholz said on Tuesday the German press Agency.

Grenell announced his resignation on Monday night in Washington during a visit with U.S. President Donald Trump. Already in the last week, the 53-Year-old had given up his Post of managing the secret service coordinator of the US government, after John Ratcliffe was confirmed by the Senate for this office.

Now, the election campaign for Trump?

What Grenell now, is unclear. It is speculated that he could move to campaign team Trumps. Grenell is considered to be extremely loyal to Trump and a good wire prides itself again and again into the White house. Via Twitter he sent like pictures with the President in Air Force One or that he had just got off the phone with him.

As an Ambassador in Berlin, Grenell saw it as his task to represent the policy Trumps in Germany and Europe-on the offensive – in an unconventional, rather undiplomatic way.

In the political Berlin, the man from Michigan, in the Midwest of the United States, with its rabid kind, hardly any friends. His best contact in the German government, Minister of health, Jens Spahn is. In the foreign office and in the Chancellery of the administration of his office was, however, not particularly well. The Opposition claims, it is to explain it to the “unwanted Person”, and thus virtually to expel even came sporadically.
