Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer leaves the possibility open
While she is not the expected person for the role, there is a possibility that Sarah Palin could be appointed as US Ambassador to Canada by US President Donald Trump.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was asked about the possibility on Wednesday, and had this to say: “We have no additional ambassador nominations or announcements to make on that front. I’m sure at some point we will have soon.”
So, we will have to wait and see.
Though a controversial figure, Palin has experience governing a large, sparsely populated cold-weather region. She has also described herself as a hockey mom, so their could be some mutual understanding there.
That said, Palin was not the most popular figure in Canada during the 2008 Presidential Campaign, and many Canadians would be a bit vexed if she was the choice – though there’s no reason to think that would deter Trump from making the choice.
Palin may not even wish to do the job. As Andrew Cohen discussed in the Ottawa Citizen, Palin has made around $12 million as a speaker and television personality, and would have to end all of that if she was appointed ambassador.
