Additional, Grenell instructed “Saturday Agenda” that “it is excessive time” to start out speaking about changing Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his whole workforce, as “they’ve demonstrated that from the start that they are too weak and never artistic sufficient to do robust diplomacy and put America first.”

The dearth of U.S. management in diplomacy has left it as much as different world leaders, akin to Turkish President Recep Erdogan to step in, and meaning the US shouldn’t be in a management place, Grenell stated.
