One year into his presidency, Biden has failed to name an ambassador to Ukraine, adding to the list of ways he’s failed as the POTUS.
“President Joe Biden has allowed the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, Ukraine, to go without an ambassador for the entire first year of his presidency,” reported Breitbart News.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Biden “absolutely plans” to nominate someone. She continued, explaining that Biden is still “looking to find the right person to nominate to fill the role.”
“Senator Ted Cruz blasted Biden for leaving the Ukrainian ambassadorship open for so long and urged him to put a nomination forward,” reports Breitbart News.
Biden doesn’t even have an ambassador nominee for Ukraine.

“Marie Yovanovitch was the last Senate-confirmed U.S. ambassador to Ukraine in 2016,” according to Breitbart News.
“Republican senators previously blocked Biden’s ambassador nominees, but Sen. Cruz struck a deal with Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer to advance Biden’s nominees. As a result, the Senate approved 32 Biden nominees for ambassador, but Ukraine remained empty because Biden failed to nominate someone for that post. Shockingly, Biden’s State Department has reportedly not talked with Ukraine’s government about the open vacancy. Ukraine’s involvement in the nomination process is crucial to ensure Ukraine consents to Biden’s nominee,” reported Breitbart News.
