Amid a spate of early resignations — and "cancel culture" threats — President Donald Trump's deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino assured administration officials that they should hold their heads high and "stay strong."
"I encourage all Trump administration officials to hold your heads up high, and be proud of what you have accomplished together, over the past four years, for the American People," Scavino wrote on Facebook, The Epoch Times reported.
"While cancel culture kicks into high gear, and blacklisting of our names for future employment is underway, stay strong, and we will all prevail!"
The post comes after Trump was impeached by the House for a second time and reports circulate that Trump administration officials are being put on corporate blacklists to keep them from getting another job, a forceful rejection of the president and his staffers.
Even congressional Republicans are joining in on the rebukes of the administration now, as 10 House Republicans led by Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., voted for impeachment.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has not come out publicly on how he might approach an impeachment trial vote, but The New York Times reported he did support the impeachment vote led by House Democrats.
"A great Republican senator messaged me [Thursday] night — I wanted to share, because it holds true for each and everyone of you in the Trump administration, and at agencies across the entire federal government: 'I appreciate your service over four long, tough years. Hold your head high for what you accomplished during a very consequential time,'" Scavino's post read, per the Epoch Times.
"Agreed, so true! Each and everyone of you have made a significant difference — and history along the way!" he added.
