Elaine Chao first Trump Cabinet member to resign in wake of riot.

Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao said in a statement that she is resigning, becoming the first Cabinet member to leave the administration in the wake of President Donald Trump's response to a mob of his supporters breaching the US Capitol.
"It has been the honor of a lifetime to serve the U.S. Department of Transportation," she tweeted, with a statement on the resignation.
In the statement, addressed to the agency she led, Chao wrote that she will resign effective Monday and was "deeply troubled" by the "entirely avoidable" events at the Capitol building.
"I am tremendously proud of the many accomplishments we were able to achieve together for our country and I will never forget the commitment you have for this Department and the United States of America," her statement continued.
