Ousted defense secretary Mark Esper warns about the dangers of leaving Trump unchecked

Last Wednesday, Esper, who reportedly expected to be ousted, told Military Times that there was “occasional tension with the White House,” saying that when dealing with Trump, you have “got to pick your fights” and “make the best out of it.” He also defended himself against critics who called him a yes-man, but says if the person who comes behind him is left unchecked, 'God help us.'
