Dad’s resignation letter.: December 20, 2018 Dear Mr. President: I have been privileged to serve as our country's 26th Secretary of Defense which has allowed me to serve alongside our men and women of the Department in defense of our citizens and our ideals I am proud of the progress that has been made over the past two years on some of the key goals articulated in our National Defense Strategy: putting the Department on a more sound budgetary footing, improving readiness and lethality in our forces, and reforming the Department's business practices for greater performance. Our troops continue to provide the capabilities needed to prevail in conflict and sustain strong U.S. global influence One core belief I have always held is that our strength as a nation is inextricably linked to the strength of our unique and comprehensive system of alliances and partnerships. While the US remains the indispensable nation in the free world, we cannot protect our interests or serve that role effectively without maintaining strong alliances and showing respect to thos allies. Like you, I have said from the beginning that the armed forces of the United States should not be the policeman of the world. Instead, we must use all tools of American power to provide for the common defense, including providing effective leadership to our alliances NATO's 29 democracies demonstrated that strength in their commitment to fighting alongsid us following the 9-11 attack on America. The Defeat-ISIS coalition of 74 nations is further proof. Similarly, I believe we must be resolute and unambiguous in our approach to those countries whose strategic interests are increasingly in tension with ours. It is clear that China and Russia, for example, want to shape a world consistent with their authoritarian model gaining veto authority over other nations' economic, diplomatic, and security decisions -to promote their own interests at the expense of their neighbors, America and our allies. That is why we must use all the tools of American power to provide for the common defense My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades o immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position. The end date for my tenure is February 28, 2019, a date that should allow sufficient time for a successor to be nominated and confirmed as well as to make sure the Department's interests are properly articulated and protected at upcoming events to include Congressional Dad’s resignation letter.

Dad’s resignation letter.

Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday night, DonLemon fought back tears while reading a letter he wrote to DonaldTrump and the widow of La David Johnson, one of four soldiers who was killed in Niger after an ISIS attack earlier this month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The letter came after Myeshia Johnson told GoodMorningAmerica on Monday that she was angered by Trump's condolence call because he allegedly struggled to remember her husband's name. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the interview, Trump responded on Twitter, saying he "had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Today, when I woke up and saw the emotional interview with grieving gold-star widow my heart was broken like most of you," Lemon said on his CNN show. "And then a moment later the president tweeted and I was shocked. I felt compelled to write an open letter to President Trump and I want to share that letter with you right now." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Dear Mr. President. I’ve interviewed you multiple times. You’ve introduced me to your family. You’ve also criticized me publicly both in front of cameras and on Twitter. Calling me “hateful,” “dumb,” a “lightweight.” Some of your friends have suggested you expected better of me. I’m not sure why you’d expect anything other than fairness and facts first," Lemon began. "We know you get a lot of your news from TV. Several of your friends and supporters have told me you watch this show. So, since I have this platform, I’d like to speak to you personally right now." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He later addressed Johnson saying, "To be extremely candid with you and with the world, as a black man I’m always looking for role models who look like me and the latest one I found was your husband, La David." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Lemon concluded, "May he rest in peace and may you find peace when you can finally get a good night’s sleep knowing that this is America. We got your back. Believe that. Signed, me — Don Lemon.": Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump @balleralert Don Lemon Fights Tears While Reading Open Letter To Donald Trump - blogged by @baetoven_ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday night, DonLemon fought back tears while reading a letter he wrote to DonaldTrump and the widow of La David Johnson, one of four soldiers who was killed in Niger after an ISIS attack earlier this month. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The letter came after Myeshia Johnson told GoodMorningAmerica on Monday that she was angered by Trump's condolence call because he allegedly struggled to remember her husband's name. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After the interview, Trump responded on Twitter, saying he "had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt.

💭 ‘Mr President, don’t build this wall!’: Berlin’s mayor urges Trump to learn from History 💭 REPORT: Berlin Mayor Michael Müller has just sent President Donald Trump a message about his proposed Mexican border wall. As the mayor of the iconic German city that was divided by an imposing wall for almost three decades, Muller is in good position to offer advice. . “Berlin, the city of the division of Europe, the city of freedom of Europe, cannot look without comment when a country plans to build a new wall,” Müller said in a statement Friday. “We Berliners know best how much suffering a division of an entire continent, cemented by barbed wire and wall, has caused. Millions of people have been seized by this division of life. In the end, we, the people, have overcome this division, and it is one of the 20th century’s star-studded hours when, at the Brandenburger Tor, the most important symbol of the division, people conquered the Wall and then removed them piece by piece. The Brandenburg Gate stands for the spirit of freedom!” . “Today, at the beginning of the 21st century, we cannot simply accept it if all our historical experiences are thrown over by those to whom we largely owe our freedom, the Americans,” Müller’s statement continued. “I appeal to the President of the United States not to go this way of foreclosure and exclusion. Wherever such borders still exist today in Korea, in Cyprus, they create unfreedom and suffering.” . Müller ended his statement with a reminder of the words of US President Ronald Reagan, who in 1987 called on Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev to take down the Berlin Wall. “Remember his words: ‘Tear down this wall,’”Müller said. “And so I say: Dear Mr. President, don’t build this wall!” . - Continued - . 💭 Read the FULL Report: http:-thefreethoughtproject.com-berlins-mayor-urges-trump-learn-history-wall- 💭 Join Us: @TheFreeThoughtProject 💭 TheFreeThoughtProject 💭 LIKE our Facebook page & Visit our website for more News and Information.
