The Wall Street Journal reports:
Education Secretary Betsy DeVos submitted her resignation to President Trump on Thursday night. “We should be highlighting and celebrating your Administration’s many accomplishments on behalf of the American people,” she wrote in a letter to the president.
“Instead we are left to clean up the mess caused by violent protesters overrunning the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to undermine the people’s business. That behavior was unconscionable for our country. There is no mistaking the impact your rhetoric had on the situation, and it is the inflection point for me.”
She added: “Impressionable children are watching all this, and they are learning from us.”
Betsy DeVos resigns.
Worst Secretary of Education in United States history pretends yesterday’s events were too much for her. https://t.co/1xcCKlnSFh
