Donald Trump to Name the Owner of NY Jets as an Ambassador to the UK, Twitter Reacts

by Amna El Tawil
It looks like the next ambassador to the United States to the UK will be the owner of NY Jets, Woody Johnson. During a luncheon in Washington, the President-elect introduced the NFL tycoon as the ambassador which prompted media representatives to consider this, a pretty much, done deal.
 
The Guardian writes that Johnson is a 69-year-old businessman and philanthropist. He is also a longstanding Republican donor but came relatively late to supporting Donald Trump’s election campaign. He served as finance chairman on Jeb Bush’s campaign to win the Republican nomination until it collapsed in February last year. Johnson only endorsed Trump in May, but emerged as a major fundraiser in the final months of the campaign and served on his inaugural committee.
 
Once confirmed by the senate, Johnson will be the sixth businessman in a row to be appointed as ambassador to the UK, which has emerged as a top reward for wealthy campaign donors in the US political system.
 
The CNBC tweeted breaking the news to inform about the likely appointment of the next ambassador in the UK.
 


This triggered Twitter users to write their reactions.
