US Homeland Security Chief quits, 3rd resignation since Capitol riots

Jan 12, 2021 13:30 IST

Ahead of President elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan 20 the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Chad Wolf announced resigned on Monday as worries rose over more violence. Wolf is the third person to resign from Donald Trump's cabinet after the Capitol Hill attack. Wolf, long a close ally of Trump, criticized the attack the following day as "tragic and sickening." Just after he criticized the storming of Congress, the White House announced that Wolf's formal nomination to Congress as DHS secretary had been withdrawn.
