dpa/GNA – US Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has reportedly become the second official in Donald Trump’s cabinet to submit their resignation after the outgoing president’s supporters stormed the US Capitol.

In a letter from DeVos to Trump obtained by the New York Times, she said she would resign effective Friday.

Referring to Wednesday’s violent protests, DeVos wrote: “There is no mistaking the impact your rhetoric has had on the situation, and it is the inflection point for me.”

Many Democrats, as well as several Republicans, accuse Trump of inciting the attack. DeVos had been a member of Trump’s cabinet since February 2017.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao submitted her resignation earlier in the day.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
