Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Obama administration National Security Advisor Susan Rice commented on Mary Elizabeth Taylor resigning as assistant secretary of state for legal affairs because of President Donald Trump’s reaction to racial tensions in the country.

Mitchell said, “I want to ask you about this resignation. Unlike John Bolton, for example, resigning, and making a lot of money, or Jim Mattis resigning and not explaining up until later exactly why he was resigning, this was direct, it was individual, it names President Trump, it specified.”

Rice stated, “Well, I guess, Andrea, I would say better late than never ever. You know, to serve an administration which has been racist to its core for the last three-and-a-half years, from comparing the peaceful protesters at Charlottesville to white supremacists, call white supremacists very great individuals, all the way through to the recent weeks where the administration has disparaged the Black Lives Matter movement, disparaged serene protesters, and made plain they choose to stand by a Confederate tradition than a contemporary America, it’s been an administration whose record on race is simply disgraceful. So while I respect the fact that belatedly this assistant secretary, Ms. Taylor, has acknowledged how unconscionable that is and decided she can no longer serve, what we have actually seen in current days is not that different, frankly, than what we’ve seen over the course of the last three-and-a-half years.”
