“Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has resigned from President Donald Trump’s administration following the deadly Wednesday siege on the U.S. Capitol,” according to Blaze Media.
“DeVos’ resignation makes her the second Trump Cabinet member to resign following the raid — Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao submitted her resignation earlier Thursday.
“In a Thursday resignation letter, DeVos said that rioters’ behaviors were “unconscionable” and that Trump played a significant role in spurring on the confrontation. [emphasis added]
“The letter, obtained by CNN, argued, ‘There is no mistaking the impact your rhetoric had on the situation, and it is the inflection point for me.’ [emphasis added]
“‘Impressionable children are watching all of this, and they are learning from us,’ DeVos’ letter added. ‘I believe we each have a moral obligation to exercise good judgment and model the behavior we hope they would emulate. They must know from us that America is greater than what transpired yesterday.’ [emphasis added]
“DeVos’ resignation letter echoes a statement she released on Wednesday following the raid.
“‘The eyes of America’s children and students — the rising generation who will inherit the republic we lave them — are watching what is unfolding in Washington today,’ the former education secretary said Wednesday. ‘We must set a better example for them, and we must teach them the solemn obligations and duties that come with the title ‘American.‘”
