Ex-Trump Officials Can Resign or Get Fired

The officials appointed by former President Donald Trump include former key White House officials. They include former press secretary Sean Spicer, former senior counselor to President Kellyanne Conway, and former national security adviser HR McMaster. Trump appointed them to advisory boards of the Naval Academy, Air Force Academy, and West Point respectively.

Other prominent names include ​​Heidi Stirrup, the former White House liaison to the Justice Department. Stirrup made the news this year when officials banned her from entering the DOJ building.

She previously attempted to access sensitive information about possible election fraud in December 2020. The list also includes retired Col. Douglas Macgregor, a former ambassador pick and Pentagon official.

Macgregor had a history of controversial comments. Trump appointed both to the boards of the Air Force Academy and West Point. 

Other Appointees Also Asked To Resign

Other ex-Trump officials asked to quit also included Michael Wynne, appointed to the board of the Air Force Academy. Also, the list includes retired Gen. John Keane, Meaghan Mobbs, and David Urban; all appointed to the West Point board.

In addition, John Coale and Russell Vought, Trump’s former Management and Budget director, got appointments to the Naval Academy’s board.

The dismissal of ex-Trump officials from military advisory boards as a result of a Pentagon reboot. In February, officials removed hundreds of appointees from other boards. Earlier in November before he left, Trump dismissed several long-standing members of the Defense Policy Board ahead of their terms’ expiry.

Psaki Confirms They Asked Ex-Trump Officials To Resign

On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed that the administration did request the ex-Trump officials to resign voluntarily.

“The President’s objective is what any president’s objective is — to ensure you have nominees and people serving on these boards who are qualified to serve on them and who are aligned with your values. And so yes, that was an ask that was made,” Psaki told reporters. 

“I will let others evaluate whether they think Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer and others were qualified, or not political, to serve on these boards, but the President’s qualification requirements are not your party registration, they are whether you’re qualified to serve and whether you’re aligned with the values of this administration,” she added. 

Vought, Conway, and Other ex-Trump Officials Will Not Resign

Board members typically serve three-year terms. Vought already said he will not resign. He tweeted a picture of a letter asking him to quit.

He added a message: “No. It’s a three-year term”.  Other officials remain on the fence as well. Spicer said he will respond to the White House’s request on his show. Meanwhile, Wynne said that “it was an honor to be on the board,” and professed his disappointment.

Conway posted a statement on Twitter addressed to Biden, calling the news “petty and political” and saying she would not resign. “Your decision is disappointing but understandable given the need to distract from a news cycle that has you mired in multiple self-inflicted crises and plummeting poll numbers,” Conway wrote.

“Very disappointed to see the Biden administration not honor a previous president’s appointment to the board of visitors, which has been the tradition for years,” Keane remarked. Also, Mobbs said she would not be resigning.

“Frankly, I find this whole act unconscionable and not all in the spirit by which this Administration promised to govern. President Biden ran on a supposed platform of unity but his actions speak directly to the contrary. Apparently, unity is only for those who conform,” Mobbs said.

“When I joined the Board under the Trump Administration, there were holdovers from the Obama Administration. They were not terminated but instead served alongside Trump appointees. This mix of perspective, experience, and belief systems ensured there was diversity – a value the Democratic party purports to hold above all else.”

    I agree with Conways statement. You would think unity would have to do with working together with people of different backgrounds different information different experiences and quite frankly different opinions. But this administration has proven otherwise they’re not interested in diversity at all and they prove that time and time again.

  • Two Dogs says:

    joe’s a Liar and a Pussy, F’k him.

  • AB5 says:

    Again, these people are believing there own lies. Firing these 11 people shows this administration is NOT bi-partisan. It is petty. President Trump did not get money to line his pockets using his hotels. He’s the only president who didn’t take a salary and donated the money. Working while being attacked is an astronomical feat.

  • Mark Hiatt says:

    Place jill biden under arrest for elder abuse, sleepy joe needs to be in a senior assisted home. he is bat shit crazy .

  • Anonymous says:

    I request Mr. biden, resignation on my desk ASAP!!!!

  • Opinionated says:

    Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. Biden has has committed the main part of this by allowing the armament being given to the Talirbon. Treason at the utmost leer.

  • Donna Roberts says:

    I so agree with Mark Hiatt. Jill Biden should be charged with elder abuse at the least. It does not excuse the record that Biden has had his entire political career, which is total failure. Anyone supporting him is only a reflection that association brings about assimilation. He has done more harm in such a short period of time since taking office, only in defiance of Trump. Very childish, and shameful. He, and his family, and supporters need a lot of prayer for discernment. My opinion , most of the democrats have what I see as a Godless character. The corrupted values that they support are definitely not in alignment with God’s word. The bible is available for all who desire to follow the narrow path of righteousness. And anyone can google the bible. Dare I say many know God’s word, yet defy it, defending sin in order to conform to their beliefs, and corrupt nature. May God have mercy, and grace on our country. God bless America.

  • Mike says:

    Biden seemed to do in less than 8 months that took Jimmy Carter was able to do in 4 years! Biden just moved ahead of Carter as the worst!
    The way I have seen Biden performance in 8 months, all indicator’s point that Biden should be the one whom should resign!!

  • David says:

    I’m so thankful that he’s bringing covid to an end and uniting the country finally.🤣
    He’a like a petulant little 6 year old. If Trump got rid of covid, he’d start infecting people again. What a clown, he should wear a jesters outfit at his press conferences.

  • Billy W says:

    Jill Biden seems to be running the country along with Nancy Pelosi they are ruining the country with their socialism rants. Time for them to go. Socialism does not work Someone has to work to pay for this system nothing is free. But Democrat’s want you to think it can happen. I think they want a Social/Communist nation with only them in charge. Take away your freedoms one by one.

  • BIDEN SUCKS!! says:

    The white liberals, who have been posing as our friends, have failed us. The white liberal is the worst enemy to America and the worst enemy to the American People!!!

  • Dr. Reverend BigBoa says:

    This shouldn’t even have anything to do with “unity”. It shouldn’t have anything to do with “reflecting” Biden’s opinions.

    It SHOULD have to do with creating well educated officers who know not how to be yes men but rather how to win military battles and wars. This bs is going to leave our nation even further at risk.

  • Wesley Davis says:

    Wrong way Joe Biden strikes again. it proves once again That wrong way doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground. Keep it up Wrong way .I’m sure that you are doing your best to drag America down to hell with you. After all you are just finishing off were Babcock Obama started.

  • Rochelle Baker says:

    “Aligned with the values of this administration”? This administration has no values. Socialism>Communism. Do people get it yet. My son was in Afghanistan during the evacuation. What a mess, biden was rude and showed no sympathy to the fallen families. He is a traitor, as the rest of “this administration”. Who did biden please regarding Afghanistan withdrawal? Russia, China, Taliban, Iraq. He left Americans and eligible Afghans there to be killed. Wake up democrats, they are ruining the USA. Research Venezuela who went from the richest country in S. America to what they are now. GOD HELP US, GOD HELP USA.
