RIP Ambassador Faith Whittlesey, a loyal Trump supporter

Washington Examiner, June 18, 2018

I first met the late Ambassador Faith Whittlesey in Fall 2016, and we quickly got into an argument.

She passed away last month, at the age of 79. Our argument, between two staunch Trump supporters, was about foreign policy.

Numerous obituaries and tributes have been written about Whittlesey and her extraordinary career. She was twice President Reagan’s ambassador to Switzerland, the director of Reagan’s Office of Public Liaison and the most senior woman on Reagan’s White House staff, a Pennsylvania state legislator who helped deliver the state to Reagan in 1980, an ardent pro-lifer and supporter of the Second Amendment, chairman and president of the American Swiss Foundation, and an early and staunch supporter of President Trump.

I got to know her best as a fellow Trump loyalist.
