Trump Taps State Legislator as US Ambassador to OAS

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump nominated on Thursday Carlos Trujillo, a member of the Florida House of Representatives, to represent the United States before the Organization of American States (OAS), the White House said.

Trujillo, 34, was first elected to Florida’s lower house in 2010 and currently chairs the chamber’s budget committee. His nomination requires Senate confirmation.

The Republican politician represents Florida’s majority-Hispanic 115th District, comprising parts of Collier, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

Trujillo has combined his service in the legislature with practicing law. He spent four years as a prosecutor with the state attorney’s office in Miami-Dade before becoming in 2011 a founding partner of the law firm Trujillo, Vargas, Gonzalez and Hevia.

A graduate of Spring Hill College and Florida State College of Law, Trujillo speaks fluent Spanish.

If confirmed by the Senate, Trujillo will replace Kevin Sullivan, a career diplomat who has been the acting representative to the OAS since July 2016 and whose previous assignments included the post of deputy chief of mission at the US Embassy in Argentina.
