Trump dismisses Defense Secretary Esper. And the last one: I expected it.
The losing Us president, Donald Trump, dismissed Defense Secretary Mark Esper, and replaced Christopher Miller, director of the National Counter terrorism Center.
“I am pleased to inform you that Christopher Miller (the Senate’s trusted) secretary of defense will become secretary of defense,” Trump said in two tweets on his Twitter account. In effect and immediately.
“Chris is going to do a great job, Mark Esper has been fired, I’d like to thank him for his services,” Trump said.
The Milli times published an interview a few days ago with the US secretary of defense, who was fired by losing President Donald Trump, in which he said he had “no intention of resigning” from his post.
In the interview, Esper said he was “not one of the people who said yes all the time” to Trump. “What I’m trying to do is kind of share my opinions and views.”
The defense minister noted the article that he knew he would be said “but I didn’t know when it would bed one.”
“Looking back, despite the series of crises, conflicts and tensions with the White House, I think we’ve succeeded in changing the department, protecting the institution, which is important to me, especially maintaining my integrity in this process.”
“I have had my confrontations with Trump carefully, bearing in mind that my departure from office will lead to the appointment of someone who will not say no to the president,” the defense minister said.
