Trump apparently personally fired Yates on Monday for refusing to defend his regime's 'sneak attack' ethnically targeted travel ban. Yates did so because of Trump's repeated racist comments about Muslim people, according to reports.

She served as deputy attorney general under President Barack Obama. Yates was still acting A.G. when Trump's nutty Muslim ban went into effect this weekend, because the Trump nominee hasn't yet been confirmed.
