Trump’s Defence Secretary resigns after Biden breaks Barack Obama’s elections record

The American Defence Secretary Mark Esper has sent his resignation letter to President Donald Trump after result  touts massive win for the former Vice President Joe Biden.

Although Mr Biden is not yet declared the next commander in chief but Mr Esper has already waved goodbye to his position under Trump’s administration.

The Pentagon’s top civilian official has clashed with President Trump on several hot-button issues, including whether to rename military bases named for Confederate generals and officials or not.

It was not uncommon for Cabinet officials to offer to step down after a presidential election but they typically did after a winner had been declared in the race for 270 Electoral College votes.

Mr Biden is yet to hit the magic number, moving to 264 in the Associated Press’s count on Wednesday.

The country was still waiting for state and local officials in a small handful of competitive swing states to complete their counts, including Nevada, Georgia and Pennsylvania.

Trump’s camp demanded Nevada to stop counting ballots over unproven rumours about worst virus surges and how they overwhelmingly voted.

Political experts revealed that Mr Biden essentially has locked up Nevada, which would put him over the 270-vote threshold with its six electoral votes, due to the outstanding ballots which are from Clark County.

That includes Las Vegas and is heavily Democratic.
