A senior State Department official who has served in the Trump administration since its first day is resigning over President Trump’s recent handling of racial tensions across the country — saying that the president’s actions “cut sharply against my core values and convictions.”
I’m know it’s happened before, but it makes me feel ever so slightly better when someone finally stands up to say, “Enough is enough.”
It makes me sad that it took this long. His response to Charlottesville should have been enough, but on some level anyone agreeing to work for this detestable person should have known what they were signing up for.
It is possible many signed up with the hopes they could influence or mitigate some of the worst parts of Trump’s nature. Still, taking this long — almost four years later — to come to that realization is too little, too late.
