Another High Profile Trump Official Just Resigned

Department of Defense chief of staff Rear Adm. Kevin Sweeney announced his resignation on Saturday, becoming the second high-profile military loss for Donald Trump in less than two weeks.

When Secretary of Defense, Gen. James Mattis, resigned in protest of Donald Trump a few weeks ago, it felt like a harbinger of things to come. Many expected that the U.S. military would turn against Trump; it was just a question of how soon and how strongly. Now it appears we’re starting to get our answer.

“After two years in the Pentagon, I’ve decided the time is right to return to the private sector. It has been an honor to serve again alongside the men and women of the Department of Defense.” Sweeney said in his resignation letter,  Axios reports. It’s notable that he did not say it was an honor to serve under the President.

And Sweeney isn’t the only one to resign this week. The official spokesperson for the Department of Defense, Dana White, also announced her resignation a few days ago.

Turnover is a reality in these kinds of jobs, particularly once you get a couple years into an administration. What makes this different, however, is that it comes within the context of Donald Trump having suffered more resignations than any past U.S. President and that it comes after General Mattis basically told the U.S. military to turn against Trump.

Military leaders are abandoning Trump by the day, and that can only serve to help finish him off sooner.
