Former top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway on Wednesday refused President Joe Biden’s request to resign from an Air Force Academy advisory board, saying the request is “petty and political, if not personal.”
The administration had sent letters asking several Trump-appointed aides to resign from boards of advisers for military academies by 6 p.m. Wednesday or face termination, Military Times reported.
Conway posted a letter refusing to leave the Board of Visitors of the Air Force Academy, saying the removals would “politicize” the academies and discourage others from serving.
