"If the ambassador feels that he can no longer serve... then he has made the right decision for himself and we respect that".

Feeley, a Latin America specialist who has worked in the State Department and the US Marines for over three decades and is one of its most senior officers, was appointed by former US President Barack Obama, according to Univision News.

Colleagues said the feelings Feeley expressed in his resignation letter about not being able to work under President Donald Trump reflect sinking morale withina diplomatic corps that has lost confidence in the administration's approach toward diplomacy.

After US Ambassador to Panama John Feeley handed in his resignation on Friday, conflicting reports about his decision quickly began to spread.

Feeley's resignation puts an end to a long career at the State Department.

It's not clear what, if anything, prompted Feeley's decision, but he apparently told the State Department about it in December previous year.

This statement by CNN refers to information from Steven Goldstein, Deputy Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs of the United States.

US officials said dozens of email messages were flying around the State Department about Feeley's decision to leave. The State Department later told reporters Feeley made a decision to resign back in December.

On Friday morning, Trump denied using the term altogether, even though he has been slammed by not just Democrats that were present in the meeting, but also by some Republicans.
