Trump nominates ambassadors to United Kingdom and Belgium

Trump nominates ambassadors to United Kingdom and Belgium”

The Jets put a succession plan in place and in March, Christopher Johnson accompanied his older brother to the National Football League owners' meetings in Phoenix.

President Donald Trump officially named New York Jets owner Woody Johnson the ambassador to the United Kingdom on Thursday.

Johnson has also been Chairman and CEO of the New York Jets and the Chairman and CEO of the New York Jets Foundation since 2000. McCourt, "a prominent entrepreneur and attorney", backed Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign and, according to the White House press release announcing her nomination, "speaks French".

The Jets owner previously spent 30 years as the chairman and CEO of The Johnson Company, a private asset management firm, and is the great-grandson of the founder of Johnson & Johnson, the health-care products manufacturer. Leon Hess was the sole owner of the franchise before the Johnsons took over.

The team's president, Neil Glat, said: "On behalf of the entire organisation, we would be extremely proud to see Woody nominated and confirmed as United States ambassador". We could not be more excited for him and his family, ' said New York Jets President Neil Glat added. The unpopular owner has always been seen as the reason for the team's poor performances in recent years.

Johnson's nomination must be confirmed by the Senate.

Trump also suggested Jamie McCourt, former co-owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers, to be the US ambassador to Belgium.
