    I have lost count of how many trump appointees are gone now. I think the number is 70 or so.

    Ambassador Melville is not a Trump appointee:

    James D. Melville Jr., a career member of the Senior Foreign Service, class of Minister-Counselor was nominated by President Obama as the next U.S. Ambassador to Estonia on May 7, 2015, and confirmed by the Senate on August 5, 2015. He was sworn-in on September 18, 2015. He presented his credentials to President Ilves on December 8, 2015.

    Trump might give Estonia back to Putin at their summit meeting next month anyway.

    Even if US President Trump gave implicit approval for Russia to invade it, Estonia's
    a NATO member and could call upon other member states to come to its defence.

    Which would make the US an enemy of NATO. Way to go Trump. Just one more step on the way to the Trump dictatorship. Fascism sneaks up on a country doesn't it, bit by bit.
