Replace Some Current Military Generals
Current Status: BrokenAs of
TRUMP: "I think under the leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the generals have been reduced to rubble. They have been reduced to a point where it’s embarrassing for our country."
LAUER: "But you’re going to convene a panel of generals, and you’ve already said you know more about ISIS than those generals do."
TRUMP: "Well, they’ll probably be different generals, to be honest with you."
As of April 2017, Trump had met with many senior Generals but has not taken much of their advice to heart, let alone retired any of them. Additionally, it is a fairly complex issue for a president to directly fire or release any of those Generals and/or Admirals.
In January 2018, after a year of the administration, there are no known plans to force any Generals or Admirals from their positions and, in fact, has managed to surround himself with many retired Generals as part of his Cabinet.
