Trump Appoints Gen. Mark Milley Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs Of Staff

Trump chooses new Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, against Mattis wishes

President Trump has announced he will nominate Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing current Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford when his term expires in October 2019.

Goldfein began his term as Air Force chief of staff in 2016, so wouldn't be expected to step down until the summer of 2020.

President Donald Trump has indicated he will make an announcement at Saturday's Army-Navy game and no one in the Pentagon seems to have the foggiest idea what he is talking about.

Milley has previously been at odds with Mr. Trump. Typically, the successor to the chairman would not be selected until next year, given that Dunford is due to serve until October 1, 2019.

Merkel loyalist to replace her as leader of Germany's CDU party
Current German Chancellor Mrs Merkel looked close to tears as she delivered her farewell speech to delegates in the room. In 2002, Merz lost to Merkel too. "Merz could be tempted to see his revenge and lunge for power (as soon as next year)".

Milley, who commanded troops during several tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, has served as the Army's top officer since August 2015.

Milley who holds degrees from Princeton University and Columbia University, is known to be liked by Trump. Trump nominated him for a second two-year term last year.

Milley was also involved in the launch of Army Futures Command which is tasked with helping modernize the service. Previous chairmen served two two-year terms if they were re-nominated. Milley tweeted that the Army "doesn't tolerate racism, extremism, or hatred in our ranks", seemingly a rebuke of Mr. Trump's comments. This new policy was made law in the 2017 defense authorization act.
