Non-Interventionist Colonel Douglas Macgregor is Nominated as Ambassador to Germany

On July 27, 2020, President Donald Trump nominated retired Army colonel Douglas Macgregor to serve as the next U.S. ambassador to Germany.

Curt Mills of the American Conservative highlighted some of Macgregor’s credentials which the White House outlined:

The release from the White House made note that Macgregor is “widely recognized as an expert on force design and grand strategy,” worked with the late, legendary Ambassador Richard Holbrooke in the run-up to the Dayton Accords, that he has consulted with both NATO and the Israeli Defense Forces and that he received a Bronze Star with a “V” device for valor for leadership under fire.

The ambassador position to Germany is largely important due to Germany’s status as the biggest economy in the European Union.

Mills also noted that there is a “precarious relationship between Trump and German chancellor Angela Merkel.”

Should he receive the nomination, Macgregor would be Richard “Ric” Grenell’s successor. Grenell left his position earlier in 2020 to serve as interim director of national intelligence.

After John Bolton was fired from his position as national security advisor, Macgregor was quickly considered as a potential candidate for the position.

Mills notes, however, that Macgregor has received negative press from neoconservative talking heads. Back in an April report in the Free Beacon, Macgregor was described as an “obscure colonel” who was receiving praise from “isolationist allies” such as Carlson.

Macgregor is also a vocal immigration skeptic that understands the political implications of mass migration, which will ruin the Republican Party’s electoral prospects in the long-term.

Because of his overall nationalist credentials, Macgregor will likely face constant attacks from the mainstream media throughout the nomination process.
