President Trump’s Interior Chief to step down

President Trump’s Interior Chief to step down

Another member of President Trump's cabinet is about to leave the administration under a cloud. "Ryan has accomplished much during his tenure and I want to thank him for his service to our Nation".

Donald Trump said Saturday that his interior secretary will be leaving soon - the latest in a series of high-profile departures from the United States president's turnover-plagued administration.

Zinke is leaving weeks before Democrats take control of the House, a shift in power that promised to intensify probes into his conduct.

Trump has reportedly been aware of Zinke's intentions for several days, allowing the White House to get a jump on naming his replacement.

Zinke had faced allegations of misconduct involving a land development deal.

Facebook admits bug allowed apps to see hidden photos
The company is also suggesting users should log into apps to find out if they have access to photos they shouldn't. This time, the company said that a bug in one of its APIs exposed the private photos of almost 6.8 million users.

Though Trump has a great personal affinity for Zinke, the Interior Secretary has found himself in the middle of countless probes into his Scott Pruitt-esque ethical misdeeds and has always been pegged as a Cabinet official with numbered days.

"I think I'm probably going to be the commander of space command", Zinke said.

Zinke sent his tweet after Rep. Raul Grijalva wrote an opinion column, published in USA Today last month, saying that Zinke must resign because of what Grijalva called 'ethical and managerial failings'.

Zinke had a memorable administration debut when he rode a bay roan gelding to his first day of work in March 2017.
