Trump fired US Secretary of Defense

45

There are reports from the United States about Donald Trump's personnel decisions. On the one hand, the readiness of the US President to "clean up" the top of the security and intelligence agencies was previously reported. But that was before the elections. Now Trump's personnel decisions are difficult to explain if he is ready to hand over the reins of the United States to Biden. Or is he not going to do this?


We are talking about the fact that Donald Trump today removed from the post of Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. The head of the Pentagon was dismissed two months before the inauguration of the 46th US President. In his place, Trump has appointed interim Chris Miller.

Trump made the appointment on Twitter - as usual for himself.

According to him, he is pleased to announce that the acting secretary of defense will be the director of the US National Counterterrorism Center. This is the position that Christopher Miller had until today.

The US President noted that Miller's candidacy for the post of acting head of the Pentagon was unanimously approved in the Senate.
Trump:

Mark Esper fired. And I would like to thank him for his service.

In response, many readers of Trump's microblog tweeted that "he himself was fired."

We will remind, Trump does not recognize the victory of Joe Biden and has already applied to the Supreme Court with a lawsuit to consider a large number of violations during the counting of votes.

    Probably refused to carry out the order to send troops to Washington.

        It is already underway and will be more ... I am sure Trump does not plan to leave, because constitutionality in the United States is all sooooo conditional. And judging by the fact that quite a few people voted for Trump, I feel that we are on the verge of a big nix.

            The problem is that, as with the collapse of the USSR, there was one moment ... namely, some violent Russian, having played the balalaika and kissing goodbye to the bear, would not throw his boots drunk on the control panel of the strategic nuclear forces.
            So, if a big nix starts in the USA, the same moment will emerge. And if you take into account that there have already been precedents that stoned and stoned gallant American missilemen were sitting at the consoles, then the picture becomes completely dumb.

        Then to say: look what this "can" has done.
        He will not sign the economic aid package yet.

        Under the new administration, all the ministers and most of the leaders always change, so he would have left anyway. A month earlier, a month later. Another thing is that Esper immediately said that the army would stand aside in any dispute over the presidency.

        Nonsense, sorry. The new administration will replace all ministers anyway, this is a common thing. It seems that the uncle is confident in his lawsuits, apparently he really secured himself a large evidence base. But if he has enough strength ...

        So Esper could not carry out such an order in any way, if he had already been in retirement for two months.

        However, US Army units have been involved in riot control and disaster relief on several occasions. The National Guard is also one of the branches of the US armed forces. In the US Constitution, I somehow did not find the mentioned prohibition. Can you tell me which article or amendment?

          Sorry for mentioning the Constitution, it was the US Restrictions on the Use of Federal Armed Forces Act of 1878, which prohibits the government from using military forces as law enforcement agencies in the United States.
          The President can use the Rebel Action Act of 1807 to bring the US Army into a city or state. Governors can ask the federal government to send troops to assist in cases of civil unrest, such as mass protests. Until now, no governor has asked for such help.

            Thanks for the information. The dispersal by army divisions of demonstrations of World War I veterans in the 30s comes to mind. Although it was on the territory of the Federal District of Columbia, which has a special status.

      Not a weird one, but in fact, Biden did not win. Tens of thousands of "dead souls" are being thrown all over the United States, thanks to which the democratic states, which have always voted for the Democrats, turned blue, the color of the Republican candidate. And here's the proof ...

    Trump is a Republican. This means that he has the right, in his opinion, to appoint the chief in the MO. 2,5 months he has. Well, God help him. There are rights. Moreover, it was earlier, 20 years ago, for our people the democrats were better. But the world turned upside down. Wait, the Republicans are good, but the Democrats are not very good. To put it mildly. Gravitate towards perversions. Aggressive!

    Maybe it's not just that he changed this Esper. Do Esper's subordinates want to start a riot on the ship? Maybe he interfered with them? The Abrams would look cool on the lawn in front of the White House, trunks on the fence.

    Many have already rushed to lick Biden and lit up at Trump. It is possible that Mark also managed to lick, which prompted Trump to remove the stranger and put his own at the head of the army. In his place, any sane politician would do so. Especially if the struggle is going on, as they say, "not for life, but for death."
