Delays in appointing people to serve in U.S. ambassador roles led the Department of State to cancel training sessions in April for America's next batch of diplomats.

According to CNN, the sessions are now scheduled to take place starting in May. Only one U.S. ambassador to a foreign country in President Donald Trump's administration has been confirmed: David Friedman, who will serve as ambassador to Israel.

Four other people have been formally nominated to ambassadorships, meaning there are several postings still in need of an appointee.

A source told CNN the White House has gotten inundated with requests from friends and backers of Trump to land ambassador jobs. Vice President Mike Pence and his office have reportedly jumped in to lend a hand on the project.

The four people who have been nominated to serve in ambassador roles:

  • New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, United Kingdom.
  • Investor Bill Hagerty, Japan.
  • Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, China.
  • Deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland, Singapore.

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is Trump's U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
