BREAKING

NBC News is reporting that Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has allegedly prepared a resignation letter, according to three current defense officials. Esper has long butted heads with President Donald Trump, sometimes publicly.

Esper reportedly wrote the letter because, of all the current Cabinet officials, he is one of those who has been long expected to be asked to step down after the election, defense officials said according to NBC.

It is not uncommon for members of the Cabinet to draft a resignation letter in the lead-up to a presidential transition in order to give the president adequate time to find a replacement for a hypothetical second term, NBC’s report explained.

This comes as Esper is collaborating with federal lawmakers in drafting a bill that would rename U.S. military bases that presently bare the names of Confederate leaders. President Trump has publicly opposed the measure, potentially creating more conflict between him and Esper. Per NBC, this legislation would be tacked onto the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

It should be noted that no official announcement about this resignation letter has been made yet.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
