The White House was quick to set the record straight Thursday after former President Donald Trump claimed he had sent an “envoy” to the Kosovo-Serbia border.

“Apart from his very active imagination, Donald Trump is no longer president and has no ‘envoys’ representing the United States,” said a White House official. journalists.

Asset issued a statement claiming earlier that his “envoy ambassador” Richard Grenell, a former ambassador and staunch ally, had visited countries on Thursday to highlight an economic normalization deal negotiated by his administration in 2020.

This is not the first time that Trump or his allies have acted as if he is running some sort of shadow presidency. His continued denial and illusions about his 2020 electoral defeat have spread to the point where he has reportedly continued to hold “Cabinet” meetings, although it is not clear who attended.

Former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said in July that he and Trump had met anonymous “cabinet members”, describing Trump as “a president fully engaged, very focused and staying focused on his task.” .

Grenell served as the Trump administration’s ambassador to Germany from 2018 to 2020 before becoming the president’s special envoy for the peace talks between Serbia and Kosovo. He was appointed acting director of national intelligence for about four months in 2020.

During his presidency, Trump criticized the Obama administration’s Secretary of State, John Kerry, for carrying out what he called “possibly illegal shadow diplomacy” when he reportedly met with foreign officials in an effort to save the Iran nuclear deal.
