More Winning: Ambassador To Germany Rich Grenell Carves $20 Million From Budget

President Trump’s ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, has announced a yuge savings of $20 Million of taxpayer money after streamlining the operations of Mission Germany.

The press release reads:

I believe strongly that American taxpayers expect efficiency and frugality from overseas missions. I am happy to report that after coming $6 million under budget for FY18, Mission Germany came $14 million under budget in FY19. Additionally, we zeroed-out all growth requests for the most recent Mission Resource Review, committing to a static budget through 2021. Through continuous analysis of our operations and goals, we have been able to meet emerging requirements through efficiencies and reprogramming existing resources as needed.

Mission Germany is the name of the collective of consulates in Germany.  Wikipedia explains:

The American Embassy in Berlin oversees all of the American diplomatic functions in Germany, including the American consulates in Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Leipzig, and Munich. There are also a few additional offices located in Bonn, the former federal capital, but there is no longer a consulate there.

The U.S. Department of State refers to the group of related offices as “Mission Germany”. In 2019, their annual budget was $153 million.[4] Each consulate operates in a designated consular region composed of one to five German states, with the American consulate in Frankfurt having additional regional responsibilities in Europe and other nearby areas.

The Consulate General of the United States in Frankfurt is the largest American Consulate General in the world. It is the home of the overseas offices of the U.S. Department of State and numerous Federal agencies whose officers travel from Frankfurt in carrying out their regional duties.

Grenell was appointed by Trump in 2017 to serve as the Ambassador to Germany. He is a gay Republican who previously served as the spokesman for the Mitt Romney campaign in 2012, and is the founder of Capitol Media Partners, a PR and strategy firm. During his time as Abassador, Grenelle has been influential in the charge to decriminalize being gay in countries where it’s illegal.

Of course the left holds nothing back in piling on the guy, as they can’t bear to have someone walk away from the democrat plantation.
