    Ex-US ambassador to Panama: Trump is ‘like a velociraptor’

    The former U.S. ambassador to Panama compared President Trump to a velociraptor when describing the president’s leadership style in a new interview.

    “In private, he is exactly like he is on TV, except that he doesn’t curse in public,” John Feeley told The New Yorker.

    “He’s like a velociraptor,” he continued. “He has to be boss, and if you don’t show him deference he kills you.”

    Feeley is a former Marine Corps helicopter pilot and a career diplomat.

    He announced his resignation from his diplomatic post earlier this year, saying he could no longer serve under the Trump administration.

    “As a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies. My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come,” Feeley wrote in his resignation letter.

    The State Department said Feeley stepped down from his post for “personal reasons.”
