Taking to Twitter on Sunday morning, Shaub, a vocal critic of the President and his administration, wrote, “The disintegration of this administration is accelerating.”

“This was inevitable from the day he refused to divest his conflicting interests & confirmed that his presidency would have nothing to do with public service,” he added.

Here’s the full tweet:

It does appear that the Trump administration is engaged in more turmoil than ever before. In the last week, President Trump announced plans to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. The President’s decision led to the resignation of James Mattis which was followed by the resignation ofBrett McGurk, the man responsible for leading the Coalition to defeat ISIS.

Shortly after Trump sent his military officials into disarray he led a partial shutdown of the United States Government after lawmakers in Congress refused to provide the first $5 billion needed to start construction on a border wall that a majority of Americans don’t want.

Walter Shaub will surely continue to point out President Trump’s various ethics violations. Shaub left his White House position shortly after Trump took office and joined Federal ethics watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

When departing from the White House Shaub told NPR’s All Things Considered:

“Even when we’re not talking strictly about violations, we’re talking about abandoning the norms and ethical traditions of the executive branch that have made our ethics program the gold standard in the world until now.”
