Former U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius, his spouse Clayton Bond and their adopted child
This is an update of a prior article. Former U.S. Ambassador Ted Osius is out for a bit of revenge for being fired by U.S. President Trump. Now, all he has going for him is some lackluster position in Saigon at Fulbright University.
The simple fact is that Ted Osius didn’t do much as U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam and he was fired appropriately by U.S. President Donald Trump. Now, he is trying to make himself relevant by conjuring all sorts of lies about the U.S. and President Trump that no reasonable person should believe.
In olden days they would have called him a traitor.
Former U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius, along with approximately 80 other American ambassadors, was one of the first victims of U.S. President Donald Trump, who was inaugurated Friday, January 20, 2017.
It is common practice for an incoming U.S. President to fire and replace ambassadors appointed by the opposition party upon their inauguration.
According to widely distributed reports at the time, Trump had demanded that all ambassadors appointed by his predecessor Barack Obama, leave their offices on the same day he was inaugurated with no grace period.
There was an exception for Former U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam Ted Osius and he was allowed a grace period solely because he was a career member of the State Department.
But make no mistake about it, the Former Ambassador, was fired.
Osius, now vice president of Fulbright University Vietnam, Saigon as an private, nonprofit institution in Saigon is speaking publicly in Vietnam highly criticizing U.S. and Trump administration policies.
In short, he is trying to claim he quit his post due to differences of opinion in an attempt to curry favor with the Vietnam government in his new position at Fulbright University by disparaging the U.S. and President Trump.
