Esper Diem

“The turmoil atop the Pentagon began when Trump’s first defense secretary, Jim Mattis, stepped down last New Year’s Eve after a series of policy disputes with Trump. He offered to stay another two months to get a successor in place, but Trump said no.” Seven months later, the US finally has a Secretary of Defense. (Seems like a pretty important position.)
