Advisor Scott Atlas’ contract would soon expire anyway. He used the resignation speech to defend himself against criticism.
The controversial corona advisor to incumbent US President Donald Trump, radiologist Scott Atlas, has submitted his resignation. In a letter to Trump that Atlas posted on Twitter, he wrote, “I’ve worked hard and focused on one thing – saving lives and helping Americans get through this pandemic.”
The radiologist had worked for the US government since August. According to consistent media reports, his contract would have expired after 130 days this week anyway. He now uses his declaration of resignation to defend himself against criticism. He always relied on the latest scientific findings and did so “without any political consideration or influence.”
