TJ Ducklo allegedly threatened to “destroy” a female reporter asking questions about his private life.
White House deputy press secretary TJ Ducklo has resigned, a day after being suspended without pay for allegedly threatening a female reporter.
Mr Ducklo had reportedly said he would “destroy” Politico journalist Tara Palmeri who was asking questions about his private life.
In a statement on Saturday, Mr Ducklo said his language had been “abhorrent”.
President Joe Biden has vowed to fire anyone in his administration who treats “another colleague with disrespect”.
