Former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulwani has resigned as special envoy to Northern Ireland following Trump’s invasion of the Capitol, Washington, a close ally of President Donald Trump.
Speaking to CNBC, Mulwani said on Thursday that he had resigned and that other government officials were considering doing so.
“I can’t do this. I can’t stay,” Mulwani said.
“Those who decided to stay and those I talked to some of them decided to stay because they are afraid the president will hurt someone,” said the former White House chief of staff.
He also said he submitted his resignation to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday night.
Several advisers to the White House and the government have resigned.
Mulwani’s resignation comes after hundreds of Trump supporters attacked the Capitol as lawmakers took part in the Electoral College’s vote-witnessing ceremony to mark Joe Biden’s victory in the November 3 election.
After repeating that the election was rigged, the president asked his followers to march to the capital.
“If you are weak, you will never get our country back. You have to be strong, you have to be strong,” he said that day.
Four people were killed during the occupation, and one of them was shot in the chest while trying to enter the building.
The other three died of medical complications.
More than 60 people were arrested and 14 policemen were injured.
