Special U.S. envoy to Northern Ireland and former chief of staff to President Donald Trump Mick Mulvaney resigned his position on Thursday in the aftermath of the Capitol riot on Wednesday.
“I called [Secretary of State] Mike Pompeo last night to let him know I was resigning from that. I can’t do it. I can’t stay,” Mulvaney said during an appearance on Squawk Box.
He also said that other administration officials may follow suit, even though Trump is only in office for a few more days until Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20.
“We didn’t sign up for what you saw last night,” he explained. “We signed up for making America great again, we signed up for lower taxes and less regulation. The president has a long list of successes that we can be proud of.”
He said that all that “went away” on Wednesday.
