REPORT: Obama Appointees Are Preventing Mattis From Rebuilding Military

The Trump people have been too nice to the Obama people in Washington and this needs to stop. Holdovers from the Obama regime are putting partisan politics above the concerns of the American people.

Trump needs to rebuild the military and these jerks are actually standing in the way.

Obama Appointees Preventing Mattis From Rebuilding The Military, Says Armed Services Chair

Holdovers from the Obama administration in the Pentagon are hampering efforts to fix the military’s major readiness problem, leaving Secretary of Defense James Mattis alone in his efforts to properly equip U.S. forces, according to the chairman of the House Committee on Armed Services.

“I am concerned that … to fix these problems [it] is going to take a lot more money, and yet a lot of the folks who are coming up with the budget to fix them are the same people who have been fighting every step of the way against our efforts to fix these problems,” said Chairman Mac Thornberry during a Capitol Hill press gaggle Thursday.

Thornberry noted that Mattis is “alone” in his attempts to alleviate the readiness problem at the Pentagon. He added that there are some people, including “political appointees and others from the Obama administration,” who have been “trying to deny there was a problem.”

The Obama people need to go.

It’s time.
