“The Ambassador was appointed by US President Donald Trump.

New US Ambassador to Croatia Robert Kohorst has arrived in Zagreb, the Embassy of the United States of America announced on its official Twitter profile, reports N1 on January 10, 2018.

Kohorst has replaced Juliet Valls Noyes before her term expired. She became ambassador in September in 2015, and in early September 2017, it was announced that Kohorst would replace her. Rumours that Valls Noyes would be recalled started circulating for the very beginning of Donald Trump’s presidential term, because – although a career diplomat – she was considered close to the administration of former US President Barack Obama, while Kohorst is a private entrepreneur from the real estate business close to Trump.” (Total-Croatia-News)
