U.S. education secretary Betsy Devos resigns

 United States Education Secretary Betsy DeVos resigned on Thursday (January 7), joining a list of officials quitting President Donald Trump’s administration in protest at the storming of the U.S. Capitol by his supporters.

In a letter to Trump, DeVos said the attack on the Capitol was unconscionable.

“There is no mistaking the impact your rhetoric had on the situation, and it is the inflection point for me,” she wrote, adding her resignation would be effective Friday (January 8).

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on DeVos’s resignation.
