Top State Department official cites Trumps handling of protests in abrupt resignation announcement

The tumult within the Trump administration continues with the announcement of the resignation of Mary Elizabeth Taylor, the first black woman to serve as assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs.

Taylor served in the state department since Trump’s administration and has long been seen as one of Trump’s top allies, but that’s all changed in recent days.

Taylor announced her resignation to the state department with a sharply-worded rebuke to the president, writing: “Moments of upheaval can change you, shift the trajectory of your life, and mold your character. The President’s comments and actions surrounding racial injustice and Black Americans cut sharply against my core values and convictions.”

She continued:

I must follow the dictates of my conscience and resign as Assistant Secretary of State for Legislative Affairs. I am deeply grateful to you, Mr. Secretary, for empowering me to lead this team and strategically advise you over these last two years. You have shown grace and respect in listening to my opinions, and your remarkable leadership have made me a better leader and team member. I appreciate that you understand my strong loyalty to my personal convictions and values, particularly in light of recent events.

Taylor is a longtime Republican who previously worked for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). She appears to be the first high-profile administration official that has specifically resigned due to Trump’s handling of the unrest following the death of George Floyd in late May.

She did not specify which actions were taken by Trump or his administration that caused her indignance and eventual choice to quit her position.

Donald Trump has yet to publically respond to the news of Taylor’s resignation.

  1. Like!! I blog frequently and I really thank you for your content. The article has truly peaked my interest.

      1. ANOTHER SHALLOW MIND UNABLE TO SEE THE BIG PICTURE,OR REFUSING TO SEE THE PICTURE AT ALL. GOOD BYE YOU PITIFUL EXCUSE OF A “LEADER”. FALL INTO LOCK STEP WITH THE REST OF THE LEMMINGS. HOPE YOUR FALL FROM GRACE IS VERY PAINFUL.

  2. Just another whinny woman, who can’t take the heat.
    What was her solution to the situation? Ask her. What would she have done differently? I bet you she will not have an answer because she would have had about the same amount if control over these happening that President Trump had, none. This was a set up by the democrats and Floyd blew it by having fentanyl and booze in his system. Why would his family be going to the UN instead, of mourning his death. Why did they have the black Muslims as security for the funeral. Why didn’t they send him money so he wouldn’t have had to use bogus $20’s to buy food. And how did they get the terroristic group black lives matter to disrupt our nation so fast? They had help and they got a heck of a lot of money. So quit instead of working to change the atmosphere of this country.

    1. Granny, your correct she would not have an answer nor a method to resolve the crisis. The biggest problem with most people of color is that they murder their own culture, they even call their friends the n-word. I heard this many times just passing by them when they are upset with each other. So why does the news media make white people look like racist, when they show more racism against each other. Unfortunately, the news media only wants to blame all this racism on our President, but in reality, the news media along with the Democratic Party who created the KKK in 1865, are the most racist groups in our Country.

  3. Sometimes I think Mr. Floyds death was a SACRIFICIAL DEATh organized by Soros, BLM or other blacks to INCITE THE DREADFUL EVENTS IN SUCH A SHORT PERIOD oF TIME. oUR COUNTRY IS BURNING

  4. All I have to say is thank you demonrats for all the upheaval in America all the division between black brown and white peoples of the world the disintegration of American property and values the undermining of our constitution and the hatred bestowed upon half of the population of the U.S.A. I and many more Americans will never forget you
    you have awoken a sleeping giant or maybe your nightmare TRUMP 2020—-2024.
    2024

  5. As far as Taylor is concerned no big deal best to have her out now before she does more damage I’m sure she will be on cnn soon when they pay her the big bucks or what ever the demonrats promised her assistant to vise President
    Camel toes harris if they could possibly win

  6. ANOTHER RINO.PRESIDENT TRUMP DON’T NEED PEOPLE LIKE THIS IN HIS ORGANIZATION.NOW TRY TO WRITE YOUR NASTY BOOK AND IT JUST MIGHT PUT YOU IN THE JAIL.I BET YOU RESIGNED,BECAUSE YOU COULDN’T TAKE THE HEAT,SO GOOD RIDDANCE.

  7. That is just it, people will act all butt hurt about how someone handled a situation and make a big deal about resigning instead of trying to work through it and get things worked out. She probably never asked to see the President and discuss what was bothering her. Also,like so many others she gave no specifics as to the problem other than she didn’t like the way he handled the George Floyd incident.

  8. So many black Americans see through what the Democrats are doing to our country.You May not like everything Mr Trump has done but he is for all Americans no matter what color . I feel sorry for you there are so many black Americans behind President Trump .so you agree with all the looting and steeling going on and the Aftia and BLMWhich many people believe are terrorist groups. I hope when you go on TV you tell the truth about why you are leaving!!!

    1. The President and his staff are approaching the situations as well as can be expected. Although the George Floyd issue was extremely unfortunate it is hopeful it will pass soon. Educated America has much more responsible issues to approach to retain the white cloud image of the world. Let’s not identify George Floyd as a “hero” in any generation. He was truthfully a victim. He did not own an unblemished criminal record by any means and it is acknowledged the overpowering police individuals did not have the intention of ending his life. He was restrained for a criminal investigation. There are countless law abiding citizens of all races including police (public servants), with accomplished records of “heroism” who haven’t received that recognition by the general public. In relation to protesting, killing, rioting, beating, and looting, the responsible individuals are vastly damaging the privileged way of life we cherish in the United States. If the police departments in this country whose members are duly sworn in to enforce the laws, protect the innocent, and respond to emergency issues are dismantled and replaced there will no longer be identified laws to abide by. Every time these servants report to work and place their illuminated uniforms on whether they’re police, fire, emergency medical technicians, doctors, nurses, military personnel, etc., they earn the identity of “respect”. They risk their God given lives to protect and care for ours. Honor and respect them. These are our Heros!
      With warm regards.

  9. What a thoughtful tolerant helpful member of the staff she is ……………. NOT. She just got her 15 seconds of fame for today and on Sunday she will be paid to appear with the usual TV loonies like Wallace, et al. because they will march her out to bash PRESIDENT TRUMP. She never offered any suggestions, advice etc. to help the situation that was planned and organized just waiting for the right trigger. They screwed up however,m with their timing. The original plan was for this to happen in October. I wonder why. The true test of her values/character could be demonstrated by her position comments about the extensive killings in LA, Chicago, NYC, Baltimore and DC of blacks by other blacks. Funny isn’t it how none of these purists have anything to say about those cases. It demonstrates just how deep racism runs in their blood vessels.

  10. Mary Elizabeth Taylor is a traitor and a coward. She’s no Republican. She’s a RHINO. Good riddance and don’t let the door hit you on your way out.

  11. YOU MEAN RINO.REPUBLICAN IN NAME ONLY. RHINO IS AN ANIMAL. WE HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR A RHINO THAN A RINO. JUST LIKE MITT ROMNEY. HE IS THE RINO IN CHIEF

  12. Unlike the Sec. of Defense, this lady did the right thing. Rather than trying to undermine Trump from her office, she resigned. If you do not think you can carry out the Presidents orders, quit. It’s that simple!!

  13. She has the option to quit. Her reasoning only echos the question was she qualified for the job as she placed color over common sense and what America needs to prosper, for All Americans. She apparently failed to acknowledge the low unemployment rates for people of color. No comment from her then. Then there was no comment from her when people of color pulled a white person out of a wheelchair and beat on him: no for boys of color that ambushed a white boy outside a convenience store and beat on him; nor the boy of color that struck an elderly women on the street and knocking her down; nor the boy of color pushing a white girl into a metro train. She jumps up people of color but leaves all other Americans behind. I just wonder who’s the real issue ….she or people of color?

  14. “She has specifically resigned due to Trump’s handling of the unrest following the death of George Floyd in late May.”
    George Floyd didn’t deserve to be treated as he was after his arrest and the officer was rightfully arrested for his action.
    However, George was no saint worthy of the attention given him. The turmoil, looting vandalism etc. in supposed memory of his death was and is a sorry legacy of this incident. I fail to see what the President did or didn’t do that would cause her to resign. She clearly was too emotionally involved over an incident that was blown all out of proportion and caused damage beyond imagination to this country. If she is incapable of keeping a clear and sound mind for her duties then she is of no further use in the administration.

  15. There’s is a problem, because Obama has a video out about Mr Floyd he said that he was dead long before he was killed by the officer and if you think about it Amy kobachov I guess that’s how you spell it was the DA when he killed the first 2 people and she didn’t press charges on either case. Trump is trying to make things better for some of the families who have had loved ones die at the hand of others. The media isn’t talking about that. Maybe for those who live in California and all the other states that have democrats find there addresses and phone numbers and post them online for all to see. That’s when anifta and BLM will go to it’s were the money is. Glad she’s gone just another loser .

  16. The President and his staff are approaching the situations as well as can be expected. Although the George Floyd issue was extremely unfortunate it is hopeful it will pass soon.

  17. Can’t she see, it’s the Democrats in the cities a d states where the unrest is. They are responsible for law and order and it’s their job to call in the national guard if the local police needs help.
