President Trump is considering firing the secretary of the Air Force after the midterm elections over her handling of his proposed Space Force, according to a report Thursday.
Citing three unnamed sources with knowledge of the matter, Foreign Policy reported that Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson has angered Trump and Deputy Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan with a perceived campaign to undermine Trump’s order to stand up the new military branch.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Shanahan hates her guts, and [Defense Secretary James] Mattis is lukewarm at best,” one source told the publication.
The Air Force referred The Hill to the White House and the Office of the Secretary of Defense for comment. Neither immediately responded to a request for comment from The Hill.
