Following public disagreements, Donald Trump announced on Monday the dismissal of Mark Esper and his replacement by Christopher C. Miller, director of the National Counterterrorism Center.
Trump and Esper had public disagreements on several issues, such as renaming military bases to Southern generals or mobilizing the army against anti-racism protesters.
In an analysis of the Pentagon’s resignation, CNN writes that the Trump administration is barricaded in a “bizarre parallel universe.”
Pentagon military sources told CNN that Donald Trump is currently behaving “like a dictator.”
As New York billionaire refuses to acknowledge defeat to Joe Biden and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announces “a line transition” to a new Trump administration, CNN warns that the next victims could be CIA chief Gina Haspel and FBI counterpart Christopher Wray.
Despite lawsuits and allegations of fraud, the issue is not whether Trump will leave the White House, but how much chaos and destruction he will cause until January 20, the day of the inauguration of the new president, as he follows the policy of “scorched earth.” “. The situation is all the more dangerous as the United States, like the rest of the world, is facing the COVID-19 pandemic, CNN notes.
