[text / observer Wang Longyue] U.S. President trump often talks about such words as “replacement”, “dismissal” and “loyalty”. Recently, news that he is going to fire mark esper, the US Secretary of defense, who has repeatedly “made a negative comment”, has also appeared in US media reports from time to time. You know, trump has replaced two defense ministers during his term of office. According to the Capitol Hill newspaper, at a news conference on August 15, a reporter asked whether trump still trusted esper’s leadership. Trump replied, “some people say esper is’ yesper ‘”, “I’m very good with him, I think he’s good.” Pentagon officials have revealed that the term “Jasper” reflects esper’s “loyalty” to trump, always nodding to the president and saying “yes.”. < / P > < p > when asked if he was considering firing esper, trump said, “I’m thinking about replacing everyone. Sometimes it happens. ” This made the reporters on the spot burst into laughter. After that, a reporter asked trump again whether there would be more turnover in his cabinet if he was re elected. Trump did not deny the possibility. “My understanding is that if we win, the president will ask everyone to resign and bring back the people he wants,” he said “This has happened before, and I see something similar happening.” < / P > < p > trump added that he had “a very good cabinet” and “frankly, I don’t like everyone, but on the whole, I think our cabinet is good.” According to Capitol Hill, it is understood that if trump wins the general election in November, esper is one of several cabinet members that trump is considering restructuring. It is not uncommon for US presidents to change cabinet members in the second term, but during the current administration, personnel changes in the Pentagon are particularly frequent. Trump’s relationship with the US military leadership has always been ups and downs, and since he took office, he has replaced two terms of defense secretary. At the end of 2018, former defense chief James Matisse submitted a resignation letter after his decision to request trump to withdraw troops from Syria failed; in June 2019, former acting defense chief Patrick Shanahan was forced to give up “becoming a full-time official” due to a marriage scandal. At present, Trump and esper are divided on a number of issues. During the anti racist protest tide in the United States, esper opposed sending active servicemen to “carry out” against the protestors, while trump repeatedly stressed the need to “send troops to suppress violence”. They also disagreed on the military’s continued use of the Confederate flag and the cause of the big bang in the capital of Lebanon. Previously, White House officials once revealed that trump was close to firing esper. < p > < p > according to the news agency, since 2001, the term of office of former U.S. Defense directors is no more than two years. If esper “leaves” in November, his term of office is only one year and four months, which will become one of the shortest serving defense directors in the United States in decades. According to the report, esper has also told close people that he intends to leave regardless of the election results. It is worth noting that in the two years since Trump came to power, his ministers, assistants and advisers have been changing like a horse lantern. At the end of Trump’s 1000 day term, the US media counted his “achievements”, including “replacing half of the cabinet members”. At the same time, trump values the “loyalty” of cabinet members. American media “politico” has commented that trump is famous for taking “personal loyalty and friendship” as a criterion for employment. American media “Axios” wrote that trump increasingly valued the “loyalty” of Republicans, whether big or small. After trump successfully survived the impeachment case, some US media analysts said that trump began to remove the “infidelity factor” and at the same time called his cronies to prepare for re-election in 2020. Currently, Trump’s cabinet members include vice president burns, attorney general Barr, Secretary of state pompeio, Secretary of defense esper, housing and urban development secretary Ben Carson.
