NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Sources close to the Donald Trump presidential transition team have secretly told The Adobo Chronicles that comedian and television host Steve Harvey is being groomed to be the next U.S. ambassador to the Philippines.
Harvey, who is scheduled to be in Manila this month to host the Miss Universe Pageant, was photographed visiting with Trump at the Trump Tower in New York yesterday. He gained notoriety when he announced the wrong Miss Universe in last year’s pageant.
Trump had asked all Obama-appointed U.S. ambassadors to leave their posts on the same day that he takes his oath as the 45th U.S. president.
The incumbent U.S. ambassador to the Philippines, Sung Kim has just assumed his post in December following the conclusion of Philip Goldberg’s tenure.
Does this mean that after the Miss Universe pageant concludes on January 29 (January 30 Philippine time), Harvey will stay put in Manila to assume his new duty?
