U.S. President Donald Trump reprimanded Pentagon chief Mark Esper and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milli for their negative feedback on a joint outing, Axios reports.
This is a route in early June from the White House to the Episcopal Church of St. John. Then the US security forces used rubber bullets and tear gas against the demonstrators to clear the way for the head of the White House to the church. Trump picked up the Bible for a few seconds and took a picture with her, which was criticized by representatives of the clergy.
Trump did not like the military’s excuses. “I personally think they should have acted differently. I think that they should be proud to go alongside their president, ”he said.
Esper previously said that he “did not know where he was going,” and Millie apologized for participating, in his opinion, in the political rally with the words “I shouldn’t have been there.”
Prior to this, in June it was reported that Trump was one step away from firing Esper. The reason for the anger of the American leader was Esper’s unwillingness to use military force to suppress protests. Enraged, Trump consulted with several advisers to decide on the dismissal of the head of the Pentagon, but they managed to dissuade the head of state.
