Top Pentagon Official Abruptly Resigns On Same Day Mattis Officially Resigns As Defense Secretary





Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White has announced she is stepping down from her role in the Trump administration on Monday, just as Defense Secretary James Mattis has his last day.

“I appreciate the opportunity afforded to me by this administration to serve alongside Secretary Mattis, our Service members and all the civilians who support them. It has been my honor and privilege,” White wrote on Twitter Monday afternoon. “Stay safe and God bless.”

The announcement more than a week after the resignation of Defense Secretary James Mattis, whose last day is Monday. Mattis resigned on Dec. 20, the day after Trump announced his decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.




White, who will also serve her final day in the Pentagon on Monday, will be replaced by her deputy, Charles Summers, on Tuesday.
