White House resignations

Graphic News

December 21, 2018 -- Jim Mattis, the U.S. defence secretary, is the fourth member of President Trump’s cabinet to resign or be forced out in less than two weeks and the 40th significant departure since Michael Flynn, the national security adviser, was forced out 25 days after President Trump was inaugurated.

Mattis, who espoused America’s traditional global alliances has generally been referred to as one of the three adults in the chaotic Trump administration, the others being White House chief of staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Trump ousted Tillerson publicly on Twitter on March 13. While Kelly was hired to bring order to the Oval Office, the retired Marine ultimately found Trump was uncontrollable. Kelly resigned on December 8.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
