Defense Secretary Switch

Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper on November 9 as noted by Military.Com. Mark Esper was appointed acting defense secretary the same day. 

"I am pleased to announce that Christopher C. Miller, the highly respected Director of the National Counterterrorism Center (unanimously confirmed by the Senate), will be Acting Secretary of Defense, effective immediately," Trump said. "Chris will do a GREAT job! Mark Esper has been terminated. I would like to thank him for his service."

"There's currently a Senate-confirmed Deputy Secretary of Defense -- David Norquist," noted Steve Vladeck, University of Texas School of Law professor who specializes in national security legal matters, Monday on Twitter. "Under 10 U.S.C. § 132(b), [Norquist] is supposed to become Acting Secretary in the event of a vacancy. Unless Trump fired him, too.".

Vladeck added, "Miller isn't eligible to be *Secretary* of Defense because he hasn't been retired from the military for seven years."

Miller will be Trump's fifth defense secretary following Esper; Navy Secretary Richard V. Spencer, who served in the position for a few days during to Esper's nomination process; Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, a former Boeing Co. executive; and Mattis, a retired Marine general who was confirmed by the Senate to the position in 2017.

Miller was Trump's 5th Defense Secretary 

It seems Trump had a hard time finding a good secretary.

If the interview is any indication, he finally found one.
