Devex: More than half of President Trump’s Global Development Council have resigned
“More than half of the president’s Global Development Council — a high-level advisory group of business, civil society, and academic leaders who offer guidance on U.S. foreign assistance — have resigned, according to a former member of the council who shared information on condition of anonymity. … Devex obtained a copy of one former member’s resignation letter. John Norris — executive director of the Sustainable Security and Peacebuilding Initiative at the Center for American Progress who served on Hillary Clinton’s transition team — was appointed to the council in 2014. He submitted his resignation letter on Jan. 25, citing the Trump administration’s reinstatement and expansion of the ‘global gag rule’ against family planning services and the administration’s refugee policies…” (Igoe, 2/1).
