Her letter alluded to her patriotism as one of the reasons she acquiesced to the resignation request. Sorry, but at this point in history, the patriotic thing to do would be to stand up to 45 and refuse to resign and force him to fire her for no cause.

Now legally she would still be gone, but the optics would be deservedly different.

Trump & Co are doing a fine job of gutting institutional knowledge. And few qualified people are interested in replacing long time employees under this administration. America's loss.
