Elan Carr will be nominated by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to serve as US Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Antisemitism.

Mr. Carr was under consideration for several months and in recent days has been acclimating to the State Department, joining the Trump administration with no experience in government. He previously served as international president of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity.

His appointment comes two years into Donald Trump’s presidency, and just as a bipartisan majority of lawmakers has been pressing his administration to fill the congressionally mandated role.
