Last week it was announced that President-elect Donald Trump nominated Iowa Governor Terry Branstad as Trump’s ambassador to China.
In an official statement issued by Branstad, he said: “I love Iowa and my country. For 22 years, I have been honored and privileged to serve the people of Iowa as their governor. My family and I will always be grateful to Iowans for trusting me to lead and putting their faith in me to serve.”
Branstad said he accepts Trump’s nomination, which has to pass Congress before it becomes official.
