Mark Esper may become acting head of the Pentagon.
U.S. President Donald Trump has nominated Mark Esper for the post of Pentagon head.
This was reported by the press service of the White House on June 21, DW.
U.S. Army Secretary of State should change the acting head of defense Patrick Shanahan on June 24.
The resignation of Shanahan Trump was explained by the fact that the acting head of the Pentagon “wants to devote more time to his family. At the same time, in early May, the US president said that he intended to nominate Patrick Shanahan as the permanent head of the US defense agency. However, the procedure for approving his candidacy in the Senate was never initiated.
Mark Esper’s candidacy for the post of the Pentagon’s head also has yet to be approved by the Senate.
We shall remind you that in May, US President Donald Trump proposed for approval by US Secretary of Defense Patrick Schengen, who is acting head of the Pentagon after the resignation of James Mattis.
