A State Department science envoy has publicly resigned in the wake of Donald Trump's lacklustre response to a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a woman was sadly killed.
Daniel Kammen, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, tweeted his letter of resignation on Wednesday, condemning the President's response.
Particularly troubling to me is how your response to Charlottesville is consistent with a broader pattern of behaviour that enables sexism and racism, and disregards the welfare of all Americans, the global community and the planet.
People noticed that he had also spelled out a secret message to the President:
Kammen is one of seven envoys listed on the State Department website.
Julia Mason, a State Department spokesperson, said in a statement that the resignation was Kammen's "personal decision":
We appreciate his dedicated service to U.S. scientific diplomacy during his appointment working on energy efficiency and renewable energy in Africa as a Science Envoy.
