Trump names Arthur Boggess Culvahouse Jr. as US ambassador to Australia

The diplomatic post has been empty since John Berry finished his term in 2016

A former counsel to Ronald Reagan’s White House, who helped vet Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate and clear Mike Pence to be vice-president, has been chosen to fill the long-vacant role of US ambassador to Australia.

The diplomatic post has remained empty since John Berry finished his term in 2016. At the start of this week the US, under Trump (two years after his election), had diplomatic postings vacant in 18 countries – including Australia.

The lack of a U.S. ambassador had become a joke in Canberra, Australia’s diplomatic circles ...
The appointment still has to be approved by the US Senate.

Culvahouse was awarded the Presidential Citizens medal in 1989 (by Reagan), before adding the Defense medal for distinguished public service to his trophy case from the then secretary of defense, Dick Cheney, in 1992.
