However, he also reportedly threatened to resign from government on a number of occasions, most recently during talks to resolve a dispute with pro-EU Conservative lawmakers who wanted a greater say for parliament over the final Brexit deal.
British Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union (Brexit Minister) David Davis.
David Davis' resignation comes days after Theresa May secured the cabinet's backing for her Brexit plan despite claims from Brexit supporters, known as Breexiters, that it was too "soft", BBC News reports. May's office confirmed that Davis had resigned but had no comment yet on the reasons.
The staunchly pro-Brexit Conservative MP Andrea Jenkyns tweeted: "Fantastic news".
If Davis" resignation emboldens the faction in favour of a "hard Brexit', she may end up facing a rebellion that could ultimately block her final exit deal when it is put before parliament in a vote expected later this year.
Mr Davis said "the general direction of policy will leave us in at best a weak negotiating position, and possibly an inescapable one".
Oil price slashed by Saudi Arabia after Trump slams OPEC monopoly
Since when did you start ordering OPEC! China has indicated that it could place a tariff of 25 percent on US oil. Some members should remember that the United States is defending them for little reciprocal benefits, he added .
"That is not something that this country voted for; it's not what the Prime Minister promised..."
But Davis expressed his unease over a compromise plan right up until the eve of the meeting, writing a letter to May describing her proposal to ease trade and give Britain more freedom to set tariffs as "unworkable".
Davis told UK Prime Minister Theresa May that it is looking "less and less likely" that the government will be able to orchestrate a full departure from the EU.
Junior minister Steve Baker quit shortly after Mr Davis - as Mrs May prepares to face MPs and peers later.
"Obviously if the Government and the Prime Minister continue to support that very poor offer then I won't have any confidence in the Government or the Prime Minister", Mr Bridgen said.
After Cameron resigned following defeat in the Brexit referendum, Davis was appointed back in government by May, Cameron's replacement.
Bolton: U.S., Russia 'Have To Agree To Disagree On Ukraine'

Some 34 per cent thought she should keep hold of the reigns, 24 per cent said she should resign now, while 24 per cent said she should step down after Britain formally leaves the European Union in March next year.
May will have a key meeting with members of her Tory party to discuss her plan in Parliament on Monday.
An analysis of the Chequers deal circulating within the pro-Brexit European Research Group of MPs was damning about the plan, saying it would lead to "a worst-of-all-worlds "black hole" Brexit where the United Kingdom is stuck permanently as a vassal state in the EU's legal and regulatory tar pit".
The North Belfast MP said the DUP's "top priority" was protecting the Union but that on Brexit the government had to deliver "control of our borders, our laws and our money" while still retaining "sensible relationships" with EU countries. Michael Gove, May's environment minister, said on Sunday that while the agreed negotiating stance was not ideal, he believed it delivered on handing back control to Britain.
She also said that Environment Secretary Michael Gove is the favourite to take on the vacant post.
Speculation is mounting that others, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, are ready to quit.
