Trump’s cabinet has some crazy excuses for continuing their support for a neo-Nazi sympathizer. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join
“Cabinet secretaries don’t normally feel the need to put out statements explaining why they haven’t quit their jobs in disgust.
But the Trump administration is not normal. And so it is that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin put out a statement Saturday night, explaining why he’s sticking around in the Trump administration.
Mnuchin responded to an open letter published Friday, signed by more than 300 people who graduated from Yale, alongside Mnuchin, in 1985. “We believe it is your moral obligation to resign your post as Secretary of the Treasury, effective immediately,” the letter reads.
Liberals, moderates, and anti-Trump conservatives have been calling for people of conscience to resign from the Trump administration since Donald Trump was inaugurated on January 20. And each of the president’s most shocking and worrisome moves — firing FBI Director James Comey, banning trans service members from the military on Twitter against the advice of Defense Secretary James Mattis — has inspired a new round of calls for administration officials to stop giving cover to an impulsive and divisive president.”*
