The United States of America, USA, Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, has resigned, in protest of the US President, Donald Trump, after his supporters stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday, Page 36 learnt.

The Wall Street Journal, WSJ, reported the development citing the resignation letter.

“That behaviour (violent riot) was unconscionable for our country.

“There is no mistaking the impact your (Trump) rhetoric had on the situation, and it is the inflexion point for me’’, DeVos said in a letter to President Trump, as quoted by the WSJ.

Earlier on Thursday, US Transportation Secretary, Elaine Chao, also resigned, due to the Wednesday violence, and described it as deeply-troubling.

Others who have stepped down since Wednesday, include Stephanie Grisham, the former Chief of Staff to the First Lady, Melania Trump, Matt Pottinger, the Deputy National Security Adviser, and Sarah Matthews, the Deputy White House Press Secretary.

Others are Anna Cristina “Rickie” Niceta, the Social Secretary at the White House, Ryan Tully, the National Security Council’s Senior Director for European and Russian Affairs, and Tyler Goodspeed, the Acting Chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

Also, John Costello, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Intelligence and Security at the Commerce Department, has resigned.

Recall, that thousands of President Trump’s supporters violently stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday, in a bid to prevent the Congress from certifying the November 2020, Presidential election results, declaring Joe Biden of the Democratic Party, as the winner.

Protesters attacked the Police with metal pipes and chemical irritants, damaged property, seized the inauguration stage, and occupied the rotunda, inside the Capitol building.

The attack came after President Trump urged his supporters to keep fighting to overturn the election results.

On Thursday, he however, said that he is “outraged” by the violent riot at the Capitol, and confirmed that he is working to ensure a smooth transition of power to President-elect, Joe Biden, and his administration.

Joe Biden’s inauguration is scheduled for January 20, 2021.
