Elaine Chao first Trump Cabinet member to resign in wake of riot 1


Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said in a statement that she is resigning, becoming the first Cabinet member to leave the administration in the wake of President Donald Trump's response to a mob of his supporters breaching the US Capitol.
"It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve the U.S. Department of Transportation," she tweeted, with a statement on the resignation.
In the statement, addressed to the agency she led, Chao wrote that she will resign effective Monday and was "deeply troubled" by the "entirely avoidable" events at the Capitol building.
"I am tremendously proud of the many accomplishments we were able to achieve together for our country and I will never forget the commitment you have for this Department and the United States of America," her statement continued.

  1. This shouldn’t even be up for discussion. You don’t tell domestic terrorists you love them while wrapping it in the lies that perpetrated these actions to begin with. Invoke the 25th Amendment now and every politician who helped enable this disgusting behavior should be removed from office.

    These “enablers” are leaving the party when it’s time to help clean up. They enjoyed the “fun” but now they wanna leave.

  3. wow, she should had resigned just a day before. It doesn’t matter, Chao is an opportunist.

    • @Dale Thomas Chao was naturalized in 1972 as a US citizen when she was 19 years old. Her youngest sister, Angela, has been the CEO and Chair of the Foremost Group since 2008 and founded by James SC Chao and headquartered in New York City. In April 2008 after the death of her mother, Chao’s father gave Chao and McConnell between $5 million and $25 million, which “boosted McConnell’s personal worth from a minimum of $3 million in 2007 to more than $7 million” and “helped the McConnells after their stock portfolio dipped in the wake of the financial crisis that year”.

    • @RaymondHng Very interesting thanks for sharing 👍

    She and her husband are indeed shameful and also responsible for the chaos.

    So brave of her to leave her job 2 weeks early. Impeach him so he loses his pension, as he has done to others.

    She picks now to resign.
    Right when he’s done for.

    WTF, 4 years of enabling and now two weeks before the end of his administration. BYE FELICIA.

    How impressive, people quitting their jobs twelve days before they’re fired.

  14. *Like Barney Fife said of Ernest T. Bass: “He’s just nuts!”*

  15. Too late. Isn’t it charming how they understand he is unhinged when their lives are threatened.

    Mrs and Mr Mitchell: Yes you obviously didn’t need the 2,000 but lot of us do.
    PEOPLE Will never forget 😡

  17. Isn’t she just escaping and shielding her husband from having to vote in a possible 25th decision?!

    It would be easier to demand Trump’s resignation. Or just arrest him for sedition.

  19. She’s one of his Enablers, lock her up

  20. She’s a day late and a dollar short.
