WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan “could very well be” the next U.S. ambassador to Russia, President Donald Trump said on Tuesday.

If nominated, Sullivan would succeed Jon Huntsman who resigned earlier this month as Washington’s envoy to Moscow amid speculation he plans to run for Utah governor.
