“Serving as the U.S. Consul General to Bermuda has been a privilege and a great honor. I am grateful to President Trump for selecting me to serve my country in this role.

“As the new administration is sworn in next week, my service in Bermuda will come to an end. Although my time in this beautiful country was somewhat brief, it was very significant. Having the opportunity to work on many projects and contribute to the bilateral relations of the United States and Bermuda.

“It has also been most enjoyable to build relationships, strengthen ties between both countries and to have met so many dynamic people. My wife, Denise and I will continue to cherish the memories we have made here and extend our well wishes to everyone.

    You may be the loveliest guy in the world. But your association and friendship with Trump means you were doomed from the start.

    Trump is seen as an aggressor to black people and white liberals. Unfortunately for you sir, that’s 90% of the island against him, and against you.

    You can visit 1003 churches every week and you can still go home.
