Acknowledging defeat, Trump’s communications director Alyssa Farah, resigns


White House communications director Alyssa Farah has resigned, a sign that Trump administration officials have begun to move on even as President Trump refuses to concede that he lost to President-elect Joe Biden.

“After three and a half incredible years, I will be leaving the White House to pursue new opportunities,” wrote Alyssa, who had also served as a spokeswoman for Vice President Mike Pence and at the Pentagon before her current position.

“I am deeply proud of the incredible things we were able to accomplish to make our country stronger, safer, and more secure,” she said, without mentioning Trump, whose term ends 20 January.

Alyssa has mostly laid low since the 3 November election, in which President-elect Joe Biden defeated Trump.

But Trump has refused to concede, touting conspiracy theories and unfounded claims of fraud to explain his loss.

Alyssa’s attitude stands in contrast with that of White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany, who has amplified her boss’s baseless claims of fraud and a rigged election.
