When the former president told them, “we love you,” and that they were “very special,” Sarah said she was “disturbed.” As for the reason why she resigned she shared that it was “deeply personal,” maintaining that she “couldn’t walk into the building the following day and act like everything was fine because it was indefensible”.
On One Year Anniversary of Jan. 6, Sarah tweeted, “Make no mistake, the events on the 6th were a coup attempt, a term we’d use had they happened in any other country, and former President Trump failed to meet the moment”. She then added, “While it might be easier to ignore or whitewash the events of that day for political expediency — if we’re going to be morally consistent — we need to acknowledge these hard truths.”
Before resigning, she released a statement that read, “I was honored to serve in the Trump administration and proud of the policies we enacted. As someone who worked in the halls of Congress, I was deeply disturbed by what I saw today. I’ll be stepping down from my role, effective immediately. Our nation needs a peaceful transfer of power”.
