Pentagon Chief of Staff Kevin Sweeney Resigns
Department of Defence chief of staff Kevin Sweeney has resigned now, after a month the Defence Secretary James Mattis announced his departure.
In a resignation letter, he said that it had been an honour to serve alongside his colleagues in the department. But he didn’t mention about Trump.
Sweeney served in this role since January 2017. He said that it is the right time to return to the private sector.
CNN earlier reported that Sweeney was forced out by the Trump White House, as this happened just after James Mattis resigned due to policy differences with Trump.
