At least one on-line news source has reported that :
“The White House has assured Canada that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will not be appointed as U.S. ambassador to Canada.
A Trudeau government official says that assurance was provided to Canadian officials during Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s visit to the White House on Monday.
“It isn’t Sarah Palin,” the official said.
American officials have not yet made a decision on an ambassador but were leaning to appointing someone who raised money for the Trump campaign.”
Ambassador to Antarctica is looking more and more likely.
