After just 44 days in office, Liz Truss is stepping down as the U.K. Prime Minister, marking her as the shortest serving Prime Minister in history.
The next Prime Minister will be the United Kingdom’s fifth since 2016.
FOX 17 News spoke with Linda Schacht, a former White House and Senate Communications official who says Truss’ exit serves as a lesson for leaders here in the U.S.
“She found that it was harder to govern than campaign on a plan of massive tax cuts,” Schacht said. “She found that she could not hold her own party together once those tax cuts caused financial market turmoil. More than that, she hung on and refused to admit she had made a mistake until just yesterday.”
