He tweeted: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".
Reached by TWS, the State Department declined to comment on whether the excerpt was genuine. He was nominated to the ambassadorship by President Barack Obama in July 2015 and was sworn into the post on January 15, 2016.
"Due to his unwavering belief in the importance of the integration of the countries of the Americas, the ambassador focused most of his career in Latin America and the Caribbean", the U.S. Embassy Panama said in a Spanish-language press release.
