First Trump administration cabinet member resigns after capitol chaos

Wednesday’s event’s in Washington D.C. has prompted a slew of both high-level and low-level Trump administration resignations.

One of the most prominent resignations was tendered by Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao — who also happens to be the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) — who announced her intention to step down from the position on Thursday morning. 

“Yesterday, our country experienced a traumatic and entirely avoidable event as supporters of the President stormed the Capitol building following a rally he addressed,” Chao wrote in a statement. “As I’m sure is the case with many of you, it has deeply troubled me in a way that I simply cannot set aside.”

Chao is the first cabinet member to resign from the Trump administration due to the riots and chaos in D.C. on Wednesday, but a number of White House staffers quit on Wednesday.

President Trump condemned the attack on the capitol by rogue supporters, advising them to go home, but has still refused to concede or resign, despite pressure from even his own staffers to step down.

Vice President Mike Pence announced early Thursday morning that Joe Biden has been officially declared President-elect by Congress after rejecting an objection to Arizona’s electoral results from Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX and Congressman Paul Gosar (R-WY).

The Senate rejected the motion 93-6, and the House rejected it 303-121. Another objection from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) to Pennsylvania’s electoral votes was also rejected, handing the White House to Biden.

Chao and McConnel are both useless, Have been their entire careers. DC must be BURNED TO THE GROUND with Pelosi and Schumer in the ashes. All traitor republicans and democrats must be eradicated.

Will everybody just shut the hell up about this being an awful event and was not warranted and how bad it was for the country. Where the hell were you when the freakin left was burning down the country to get the cheatin bastard biden elected. Were you standing against that and supporting Pres Trump. Hell NO. You were worried about if the Senate and House cafeterias were open and how many more draconian rules could be placed on the citizens for a virus that is 98.9% survivable
This is what happens when elected officials DO NOT stand up for principals and the people of this country. Came a little to close to home huh samp dwellers.
This country looks at other countries when they do this type of thing and we support them but dont support ourselves when a grave injustice has been done regarding the STEALING of an election?????
No wonder no one trusts DC.

it is a shame at what happened. President Trump was attacked from the very beginning by Democrats and people with Republican’s in name only. The question is why, they are Americans why would they not want America to be first. With all of the aid we give all around the world and the blood shed from our military so that other countries could be free. with all of this look at what he, our president, and his administration accomplished. I really believe that China’s use the Virus as a First Strike weapon. they knew what was going on and yet they let the infected people travel all over the world infecting innocent people, taking the lives of millions. History will be very kind to this man our president, I am so proud to have voted for him. All boats were lifted, he represented all Americans. I know after he leaves office he will still be there. Some times you have to taste defeat so know what you have lost.

Absolute truth. But can they handle the truth or even want to acknowledge it ?

You hit that nail square on the head!!! Unfortunately there are very few politicians who have integrity. Most of them (McConnell included, I’m afraid) are in it for the perks. We need term limits for all of them, including the Supreme Court!

President Trump should just stop all the rants and go home. He has lost his bid for another 4 years and it, at this point, doesn’t matter how it is over and America is finished. Just like the Roman empire we did it to ourselves. The country we once knew will never exist again.

I’m afraid that what you say Elbert is closer to the truth than many of us would like to think. The President has two weeks left in the office. Why is it so important to get him out NOW except for the Democrats to claim final victory? Can’t wait to see how well things go from here on out! Will be laughing all the way to my grave!

There is a reason they want him out now because he could still expose them for the rats they are including the r i n o s. I sincerely hope he does , everyone knows he won this election and the people weren’t even allowed to be heard with the evidence they have and it’s a lot!

I’m sorry President Trump. I will always say you are THE BEST PRESIDENT OF THE HISTORY AND FUTURE. I. AGREE THAT THERE WAS VOTER FRAUD. I guess the Soros, Gates. Zurkenburg. And the Twitter man. They think they own this Great Country. Now China Will. Smile and remember your supporters still
Know it was voter fraud, they just wanted Harris in, with her evil looking eyes.

Omgosh, he gave a great speach! That whole thing was set up there are videos of State Patrol cars and police cars escorting 4 white Vans right to the front steps of the capitol and they were all antifa vans and there’s a police officer waving them to go in and riot. There are videos of this it was antifa that caused the Ruckus not the Trump supporters maybe a few were mixed in there but a lot of antifa

How do you know it was Trump supporters? It’s amazing to see how “supposedly” intelligent people jump to conclusions without facts. I am amazed at the lack of backbone in many of these politicians. Consider what groups have caused all the burning and chaos in the past year and use some common sense.

Shame on you, Elaine Chao. Glad to see you leave, traitor. Shame on you, Mitch McConnell. You should also resign from GOP. GOP is weak and divided under your leadership. In addition, both of you are the puppy of CCP, disgusting and despicable person.

That’s right, all you people that President Trump has given great jobs to, jump ship. It’s called Kick a Person when they are down. President Trump has done wo much for this country, and you have benefited from all of it,, and this is how he is repaid. I, for one, will hang in there with him till the bitter end. He’s a great President and I’m ashamed that all of you after taking the money and the prestige are running like the rats you are. Shameful. I wish the turn coat Mitch would follow his wife out the door. He has been one of Trumps biggest pains, and traitor the whole 4 years. He’s never helped him one bit. Sorry to say I’m wondering about Pence now. I really like him, but just am not sure what’s going on there. President Trump, with friends like these you don’t need any enemies. Your base still loves you and wish you only the best. I pray they find out who these thugs were that did that yesterday, they were not your people. Antifa or one of those nasty groups.

F Pence, he could of saved us all, but no he was bought just like the rest of them, nothing but liars and cheaters. What goes around comes around. They will pay eventually.

I was with President Trump until yesterday. His speech was to much he sounder like a spoiled baby. He was cheated in the election but to keep crying about it the way he did instead of revealing the facts was to much. No doubt his supporters were infiltrated and the antifa, blm and soros people were the ones who started the trouble but trump should have expect that of those groups.
Good president but got carried away yesterday. He should have gotten to the capitol and told them to stop and those who didn’t (listed above) would have been the losers but he fell for the trap.
