President Donald J. Trump will formally nominate former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman as ambassador to Russia, the White House confirmed on Tuesday.

Gov. Huntsman, who ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, also served as U.S. Ambassador to China under Barack Obama from 2009 to 2011. He served as ambassador to Singapore under George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton from 1992 to 1993.

Currently, he is serving as the chairman of both the Atlantic Council, a premier foreign policy think tank and the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. The moderate Republican is the son of Jon M. Huntsman, the billionaire head of global chemicals producer Huntsman Corporation.

  • I worked for a Hunstman collaboration with a state of the art isocyanate plant in Shanghai. His workers were treated fairly, were paid well, and treated very respectfully.
    Jon Huntsman is a good man. He is an excellent fit for the position of Ambassador to Russia.
