The State Department investigates the loss of gifts to foreign leaders
The New York Times published a report saying more than two dozen expensive gifts to members of the G7 summit were missing. The event was reportedly canceled, but gifts were nevertheless purchased and eventually lost.
At the close of Donald Trump’s presidential term, storekeepers saw various appointees leaving the building where the gifts were kept with these bags, according to the testimony of those in charge of storage.
The NYT reports a nearly $ 6,000 bottle of whiskey that the Japanese government donated to Mike Pompeo, who served as Secretary of State, has gone missing.
Liberal media also tend to believe that the gifts Trump and his appointees received from the Saudi royal family also violated the law.
According to various sources, among the gifts were three robes of tiger and cheetah fur, as well as a dagger with a hilt that appeared to be made of ivory. It was later revealed that the furs and bones allegedly used to make gifts were artificial and did not violate the Endangered Species Act.
