President Biden Fires Disrespectful Trump Appointees and Warn Others

Shortly before former United States President Donald Trump exited the White House, many of his “most notorious” appointees resigned from their posts. Nonetheless, some of them stayed on despite their disagreement with the November 2020 election results—that is, until newly-appointed President Joe Biden ousted them. The three “most unqualified and corrupt appointees” he fired include Michael Pack, the head of the US Agency for Global Media; Kathleen Kraninger, the director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and Peter Robb, the National Labor Relations Board’s general counsel. The terminations were intended to send a message, Mark Joseph Stern writing for Slate reports: “Biden will not tolerate hostile Trump holdovers in his administration, including those with time remaining in their terms.”
