Yesterday, President Trump fired Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. One of several reasons was likely determinative – and must not be repeated by his interim successor.
Last June, as Antifa and the Black Lives Matter organization were rioting in cities across the country, Mr. Trump entertained the idea of invoking the Insurrection Act to restore order with federalized National Guard and perhaps active duty military units. Secretary Esper publicly opposed taking such a step.
The summer’s Marxist revolutionaries are now poised to build on the chaos they previously caused in the hope of driving Donald Trump from office and driving Joe Biden further to the left. Mr. Trump must have a Secretary of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff who will execute lawful orders to disperse those who seek not just the end of this presidency, but the end of our constitutional Republic.
