The new American President, Donald Trump, seems to be in line with keeping the promise he made to the Haitian community, when he visited the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami during his campaign; that is to appoint a Haitian-American as ambassador to the Caribbean island, which he had used as one of the prime example of failures of his opponent, former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
Retired Air Force Colonel Rudolph Moise, a Haitian-American, is currently under consideration by the new American President, Donald Trump, as the possibly new ambassador to Haiti, sources close to the transition team said.
Rudolph has a combined of more than thirty years of experience as an ambassador, physician, U.S Air Force Reserve Colonel(Ret), a lawyer and a successful entrepreneur.
Rudolph is one of Haiti's and America's best success stories. He migrated to the United States, via Chicago at the age of 17. 6 years later, Dr. Moise earned his medical degree from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine. He later earned a Master of Business Administration and Juris Doctor from the University of Miami.
Since 1984, Dr Moise has been the President and Medical Director of the Comprehensive Health Center, treating more than 25.000 people in the city where it operates. As a businessman, Moise was awarded the Black Business of the Year Award by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and the Community Leadership Award in 2005.
Dr. Rudolph has been one of then President Michel Martelly, and President-elect Jovenel Moise strongest supporters, and has even organized fund raising for both of them at his home in South Florida. Michel Martelly, appointed Rudolph Moise Ambassador at large for Investment. He was responsible to work with the President, the Prime Minister, the Cabinet Ministers, Haiti's ambassadors to other countries on investment opportunities for Haiti.
