Dr. Scott Atlas, President Trump’s special adviser on the coronavirus pandemic, formally resigned from his post on Monday, Fox News has learned.
Atlas, who spoke with the president on Monday, joined the administration in August, and was considered a Special Government Employee (SGE), serving a 130-day detail. Atlas’ role is set to expire this week. …
Atlas’s resignation letter Monday, which was dated Dec. 1 … touted the Trump administration’s work on the coronavirus pandemic, while wishing “all the best” to the incoming Biden administration.
Atlas also touted Operation Warp Speed, and the team that “delivered on our promised timelines for new drugs and vaccines.”
“I congratulate you for your vision, and also congratulate the many who did the exemplary work—we know who they are, even though their names are not those familiar to the public,” Atlas wrote.
