Newsline: Trump may select businessman not diplomat as next US ambassador to Russia

US President-Elect Donald Trump may select a businessman, not a career diplomat as the next ambassador to Moscow, the conservative commentator John Gizzi told TASS. According to him, Trump loves to have people “he’s comfortable with” around him. A choice of someone from business quarters for the position of the US ambassador in Moscow would be logical, since Trump is more inclined to trust business people. Also, an appointment of this kind would not be without a precedent, as George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the U.S., selected the businessman and lawyer Robert Strauss to serve as the ambassador in Moscow during his term of office in the White House, Gizzi recalled.
