Sally Yates, the former acting attorney general who President Donald Trump fired days after taking office, endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden's White House bid on Thursday.

"I am supporting Joe Biden for President because I trust him," Yates said in a statement. "I trust him to always put the country's interests before his own; to tell us the truth; to appeal to our best, not our worst, instincts; to unite rather than divide us; and to always treat the presidency as a privilege rather than an entitlement."

Yates, who served with Biden in the final two years of the Obama administration, described her former colleague as "a thoroughly decent person who will restore integrity and honor to the presidency" as well as "work to heal a country that has been selfishly ripped apart for personal and political gain."
