United States President Donald Trump officially announced his intent to nominate Lana Marks — who previously lived in Bermuda — as the ‘Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to South Africa.’

The selection of Ms Marks, who who along with her husband was charged — and later cleared on appeal — with an immigration offence in Bermuda back in the 1980, had previously been reported by the international media, and earlier this week the U.S. Government officially confirmed those reports.

The official White House website said, “President Donald J. Trump announced his intent to nominate the following individuals to key Administration posts: Lana J. Marks of Florida, to be Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the United States of America to South Africa.

“Ms. Marks is the founder and CEO of Lana Marks Ltd., Inc., a luxury fashion accessories producer.  She served on the Women’s Leadership Board at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Women’s International Forum for more than a decade.
