U.S. President Donald Trump announced his intention on Tuesday to appoint three individuals, including former U.S. Ambassador to Germany and, from February to May 2020, acting director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell to the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council, the governing body of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.

The president also plans to appoint Susan Levine and Martin Oliner, vice president of the American Zionist Movement and president of Religious Zionists of America, to the council.

In 2014, Levine’s family donated $25 million to the USHMM, the largest gift in the museum’s history.

In the past few months, Trump has made numerous appointments to the council, mostly consisting of his allies.
