Trump Offered to Nominate Ricardel as Ambassador to Estonia, Sources Say

President Donald Trump reportedly offered to make Mira Ricardel the U.S. ambassador to Estonia after she was ousted from her position as national security adviser John Bolton's top deputy, but she ultimately refused, Bloomberg reported.

President Donald Trump reportedly offered to make Mira Ricardel the United States ambassador to Estonia after she was ousted from her position as national security adviser John Bolton's top deputy.

"I admire the President and First Lady and have great respect for my colleagues who are dedicated to supporting the president's policies, and I look forward to working with them in the months ahead", she said.

Melania Trump says she's OK with the criticism and ridicule she has received for tackling online bullying and remains committed to the issue because "it will provide a better world for our children".

Aides stressed that Ricardel had never actually met Melania Trump. She recently said she considers herself to be one of the most bullied people in the world.

All of the people asked not to be identified discussing a White House personnel matter.

Current and former Trump White House staffers are debating what has triggered outbursts with theories ranging from his fears over son Don Jr.'s legal exposure to the prospect of House Dems unleashing investigations in January.
