One of the first high-profiled Republicans to publicly support President Donald Trump during his campaign was former half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. After two weeks of the new administration, Palin might be making her way back into the White House sooner rather than later.

Palin on Canada

Sarah Palin was launched into the national spotlight in 2008 when she was selected to join Sen. John McCain on the Republican ticket. After being exposed for apparent ignorance on many issues, Palin was taken in by the far right and quickly viewed as a darling of the right-wing Tea Party.

After years as a contributor to Fox News, Palin went on to create her own short-lived online news network, and then came out in support of Donald Trump. After being rumored to be Trump's vice president or as the head of the Department of the Interior, new reports say Palin could be named as the ambassador to canada, as reported on February 8.

Reports circulated earlier in the week that Sarah Palin could have a role in the Trump administration, with Andrew Cohen of the Ottawa Citizen writing a scathing op-ed pushing back at the possibility. The issue was then brought up during Wednesday's daily briefing with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

When Spicer was asked about Palin possibly being named as Ambassador to Canada, the press secretary refused to deny the reports, and said that an announcement on the role would be made in the near future.

Reaction to the news made its way to social media, where Twitter users quickly expressed their outrage.

"Dear Mr. Trump: Rather then appoint Sarah Palin as ambassador to Canada, please bomb us. Signed, all intelligent life in Canada," one user wrote. "Sarah Palin rumored to be Ambassador to Canada... I was promised your mistakes wouldn't affect us. Uh oh," another tweet read. Other tweets were more humorous, with one stating, "If Sarah Palin is ambassador to Canada I suggest Nickelback as ambassador to USA."

Moving forward

As of press time, neither Donald Trump, nor Sarah Palin, has commented on the reports, but the role of Ambassador to Canada is currently vacant. While it's unknown if Palin will take the job if it's offered, the former Alaska governor has expressed an interested in getting back into politics.
