"That time has come", Feeley said, according to an excerpt of the letter read to Reuters.

Feely is a career diplomat and U.S. Marine Corps helicopter pilot veteran who acknowledged in his resignation letter that he believed he could no longer serve apolitically in the Trump administration.

Contrary to some early speculation, Feeley tendered his resignation prior to Trump's reported comments (which the president denies making).

A state department spokeswoman confirmed Feeley's departure, saying that he "has informed the White House, the state department and the government of Panama of his decision to retire for personal reasons, as of 9 March of this year".

John Feeley, 56, who worked at the State Department for almost 30 years, announced his resignation in a letter to the State Department. Trump reportedly said during a meeting with both Democrats and Republicans.
