President Donald Trump announced that Mark Esper has been “terminated” as Defense secretary.

He said Christopher C. Miller will be acting secretary of the nation’s largest department.

The announcement on Twitter came about five months after Trump and Esper had a public break over how to handle civil unrest in America’s cities.

An administration official said the directors of the FBI and the CIA could be next.
