Two members of Trump’s Cabinet have resigned in protest of Wednesday’s failed coup attempt at the U.S. Capitol. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said in a statement she was “deeply troubled” by the insurrection. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos called the events “unconscionable” and said they were an “inflection point.” Chao and DeVos have been members of Trump’s Cabinet since just after his inauguration in 2017. They’re the 11th and 12th Trump administration officials to quit after Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol.
