Interest In U.S. Diplomatic Corps Falls With New Administration

Interest in joining the State Department’s elite ranks of Foreign Service officers has tumbled in the early months of the Trump administration, triggering worries among former officials about the long-run risks to U.S. diplomatic power. According to data obtained by POLITICO, this June, the number of Americans who took the Foreign Service exam to start the process of joining the prestigious State Department ranks fell 26 percent from the same month a year earlier to 2,730. The June tally marked the lowest number of test-takers in nearly a decade.
