WASHINGTON – Schooling Secretary Betsy DeVos has grow to be the second Cupboard secretary to resign a day after a pro-Trump riot on the U.S. Capitol.
In a resignation letter Thursday, DeVos blamed President Donald Trump for inflaming tensions within the violent assault on the seat of the nation’s democracy. She says, “There isn’t a mistaking the influence your rhetoric had on the scenario, and it’s the inflection level for me.”
Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao tendered her resignation earlier Thursday. Information of DeVos’ resignation was first reported by the Wall Road Journal.
In a farewell letter to Congress earlier this week, DeVos urged lawmakers to reject insurance policies supported by President-elect Joe Biden, and to guard Trump administration insurance policies that Biden has promised to remove.
