US Ambassador John Estrada will resign from his post according to established procedure when a new president is elected.
Ambassador Estrada issued this statement Wednesday morning, following the election victory of Donald Trump.
"Every time a new president is elected U.S. Ambassadors all over the world submit their resignation.
It is up to the new President to either accept or reject these resignations.
I will submit my resignation, following long-established procedure.
This would have happened no matter who was elected.
For now, I remain the representative of President Barack Obama, the U.S. Government and the American people in Trinidad and Tobago.
And I will continue to serve in that capacity until a decision is made.
Serving as U.S. Ambassador to the country of my birth is an honor and a great opportunity to continue to build a strong relationship between the United States of America and Trinidad and Tobago."
