EXCLUSIVE: Trump plans to nominate Ed Whitacre (former AT&T, GM CEO) as new US Ambassador to Mexico, sources tell me. In 1990, Whitacre was key biz partner to billionaire Carlos Slim in his historic bid for Telmex. He would replace career diplomat Roberta Jacobson via @Reforma pic.twitter.com/Ot5elmS0EB

I wish @EmbRoberta, a long-time friend and colleague, the very best. We @statedept greatly appreciate her 31 years of exemplary government service, including as U.S. Ambassador to #Mexico and as Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs.
