Trump intends to replace defense secretary after elections — media

The American leader is disappointed with the political activities of the head of the country's defense department.





US President Donald Trump plans to replace Pentagon chief Mark Esper if he wins the presidential elections in November. This was reported by Bloomberg on Wednesday, August 12.

It is noted that Esper himself intends to resign soon, regardless of how the elections end.

According to the agency, the American leader is disappointed with the political activities of the country's defense minister during his year in office.

So, according to Trump, Esper did not make every effort to publicly defend the president's words that Russia paid Taliban militants a “reward” for killing American troops in Afghanistan.

Also in June, the head of the Pentagon publicly opposed the use of the active army to contain nationwide anti-racist protests.





At the same time, Esper's entourage says that he intends to serve as long as Trump wants it.

Earlier, Esper explained that the United States is withdrawing troops from Germany in order to strengthen the containment of the Russian Federation, while Trump said that the United States decided to reduce the military contingent in Germany due to the fact that Berlin spends insufficient funds to maintain NATO's collective defense.
