The Pentagon delayed recommendations for two female generals to take over top-tier commands last fall for fear the Trump administration would overturn the decision, The New York Times reported Wednesday.
Then-Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Army Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs, advised against a recommendation to nominate Air Force Gen. Jacqueline Van Ovost, currently head of Air Mobility Command, to take over U.S. Transportation Command; and another for Lt. Gen. Laura Richardson, of U.S. Army North, to lead U.S. Southern Command, for fear the Trump White House would replace them with other candidates, the Times said.
WNU Editor: These Generals were going to be promoted even if Trump won re-election. Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper is making this claim, and I am just rolling my eyes in response.
