Report: Mark Esper prepared resignation letter ahead of election

While President Donald Trump is still embroiled in a contentious fight for his re-election against Democratic contender, former Vice President Joe Biden, reports emerged that one of the president’s Cabinet members was set to resign before the election results were even settled.

NBC News reported Thursday that Defense Secretary Mark Esper had “prepared his letter of resignation.” The news outlet acknowledged that it isn’t unusual prior to a president’s second term, but said Esper felt he would get booted in Trump’s second term anyway.

The news outlet claimed Esper felt uneasy about his future with the administration after he had planned a push to remove Confederate names from military bases through the National Defense Authorization Act. The plan was to use Congress to get the changes through legislation during the lame duck session rather than through the respective military branch secretaries.

Trump wanted to keep the names on the bases because of their historical significance to U.S. military victories. The president tweeted in June that he wanted to keep the names of “Legendary Military Bases, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Benning in Georgia, etc.” because America “trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars.”

Still, NBC News said that Esper, who was supposedly such a “yes man” to Trump that he earned the nickname “Yesper,” was worried about his reputation as a rubber stamp for Trump’s agenda. “He cares about his legacy and prefers to be remembered as someone who was fired because he stood up to the president, rather than being remembered as ‘Yesper,'” it reported using the age-old trick of quoting unnamed officials.

However, the story was refuted on Twitter by Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs Assistant Jonathan Hoffman.

“The NBC story is inaccurate and misleading in many ways,” Hoffman wrote Thursday. “To be clear, Secretary of Defense Esper has no plans to resign, nor has he been asked to submit a letter of resignation.”

He went on to say that Esper “continues to serve the nation as the Secretary of Defense at the pleasure of the President and is working on the irreversible implementation of the National Defense Strategy.” This makes it appear that the report was little more than a leftist media rumors.

It seems that Trump’s first term is wrapping up in the same way it started. Trump has always had to defend himself against attacks from Democrats and their allies in the leftist media. If Biden is elected, the left’s parting gift will be more lies about his administration.

    1. That is so true. I knew this mail in vote crap was going to end up like this. I said the only way the Democrats could win was if they cheated. That is exactly what they are doing. Somehow they must be stopped.

      1. THEY THE DEMS HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER= THEY ARE LOSERS, THEYSTOLE THE ELECTION,THEY ARE DIVIDERS AND LIARS- THEY WILL GET WHAT THEY SESERVE, AMERICA YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS COMING WITH THE COMMIE GOVERNMENT. I FEEL VERY SORRY FOR WHAT WAS A GREAT NATION. DEMS HAVE BEEN INDOCTRINATED TO HATE THEMSELVES,AND NOW LIKE SHEEP THEY ARE BEING LED TO SLAUGHTER. SO SAD

  1. Biden has not won yet, they are too busy trying to steal the election all should be in jail for tampering with voting and going against the constitution rules for voting. Just who the hell do the think they are? Judge Roberts should be impeached for not following the Constitution laws he took an oath to uphold. If you think we the people are gonna sit back and watch the dems. Cheat think again. No body who has a brain would elect a president who has dementia.

      1. You are so correct, however, Demorat “vote harvesting” unfortunately gave BiteMe the presidency, now God protect our country from demise!!!

    1. Judge Roberts said or did something years ago, that I lost my trust in him. I will never understand why they
      are voting for Biden. The democrats have said what they plan to do. We would end up like Venezuela and
      the people have ignored this. The demon rats are really trying to cheat on this election. I heard that the
      system they use for counting the ballots have a glitch in it and the votes that were supposed to go to Trump
      went to Biden. Also it is the law that there can be two poll watchers to watch the counting and in Philadelphia
      they wouldn’t let them on. This is against the law.

      1. There is no law in this country any more. Judges rule and democrats just ignore them and nobody presses them. I’m so glad my mom didn’t live to see this. Sue

        1. Sue Angeloff,

          You are so right! There are no laws that govern politicians and this is why they can break every law with immunity. There will come a time in our history when we will reach the breaking point of political crimes being committed in Congress. It will explode to open warfare and there will be politicians dragged out of their beds and tarred and feathered and hung from the nearest liberty tree.

      2. They’re voting for Biden bc they know if he doesn’t get voted in all their lies n corruption will be exposed. Leading to indictments n prison time. Trump will be our President for 4 more years. Pray diligently for our President Trump. He needs our support more than ever.

    2. Well, just look at all the brainless who did and all the people who don’t like Biden but voted for him because they hate Trump. Then there is all the people who rose from the dead along with all the people who were paid to vote multiple times. Now, that is some of the reasons Biden got all those votes. Americans have been dumb down in the public school system with the help of the Fake News media talking heads for the last 60 years. Just ask any college student what was Thomas Jefferson famous for and you will know for sure how ignorant these people are.

      Our country is in deep trouble if Biden is put in the White House. Within 2 years, that is if Biden lasts that long, Kamala Harris will become Ms. President. God help us all if this ever happens.

    3. Who wouldn’t elect an imbecile. You don’t know many demonicrats do you. They would vote for Hitler if you promised them the moon, for free. Of course you would be thinking to yourself these people are such fools that they will believe anything.

    4. And, what makes it worse is that because he has dementia Kamala Harris will step in as president. She is not a good candidate and unprepared for such an important position. The country should be very sad at this time. We all need to support President Trump’s team in their efforts to review the facts before the presidency is declared. Then after concluding there is legitimacy, we move on with smooth transition. God help America.

    1. Biden should be going to jail for election fraud, he is not presidential material. his VP is whore house material. By picking heels up he has shown his level thinking clit clit clit clit sniff sniff sniff sniff .

    2. I will not recognize Biden as my president. He is trying to steal the election along with all the other despicable lefties.

  2. He is going anyway. You media clowns are so excited about all the dead people that voted for groping Joe (132,000) at a time you forget Biden is Treason in the flesh

    1. The Demonicrat party is the party of the Walking Dead, if you don’t believe me look at who they have for a candidate, he lives in his tomb.

  3. Joe Biden should be hung by his neck til dead. Along with camel toe heels up Harris and piglosi. Storm the wh and drag them out. Civil war on the horizon.

  4. We need to continue supporting president Trump. What a great leader.
    They – dems, biden, hunter, brennan, clapper, strozok, Paige, comey, hollywood, big tech, msm, illiterate athletes, teachers, and even some congress (both sides), rinos, — need to try to wiggle off the corruption/treason hook, and think they can save themselves if the embalmed biden wins.
    Pres. Trump has worked so hard for all of us, while getting beat up every single day by swamp dwellers.
    I hope he doesn’t give up.
    But I also know he doesn’t need this crap.
    lbillows

  5. They are worried about a PEACEFUL transition? They NEVER allowed him a Peaceful week from even before
    he was sworn in….sit back and we’ll see. TRUMP in 24!!!

  6. Stand up Patriots,,,Time to backup our president, save our country, preserve our freedoms and constitutional rights..The Dems have been saying for a long time,they were going to take them..The time has come,,,hand them over or give them HELL. NEWS FOR THE DEMORATS.. WE’RE COMING,AND HELL IS COMING WITH US………..

  7. Trumps administration was from the beginning plagued with the Clinton’s and Obama’s spies. They were out to destroy Mr. Trump from the very beginning. Mr. Trump stood in their way to reform America as a world leader. Mr. Trump gave us hope while through Clinton the militaries was reduced in power and many basis were closed. Obama was traveling on the same road while pretending to be for the black community, he actually made them more dependent by giving away telephones and such. Bible predictions are coming to fruition. Corruption under democratic leadership is going out of hands.

  8. Biden should never have been allowed to run and still has to face up to what he has done he is a disgrace to this country just like his VP choice who could not even make it thru the primary she was so disliked and now she is subject to be president there is no way this should happen

    1. I agree with you totally. I just don’t get it how Biden was even voted for by anyone. I mean my goodness does the American people not care what his son with pretty much the whole family did in Ukraine? I can’t wrap my head around people would vote for Biden. Now back to our country being bought out by China to the Biden’s.

  9. Congratulations America, you’ve just allowed a bunch of ignorant lowlifes, criminals and traitors steal the presidency of our country! I for one cannot and will not recognize a liar, cheater, thief and traitor and his jezebel as the leaders of my country! I now support the call for a second Civil War, simply put, take back our country by force! My one consolation is that I already know that the people that stupidly voted for these criminals will be their first victims. When that happens, don’t you fools ever expect help from Loyal American Patriots!

    1. I feel your pain and I don’t think anyone will be able to help the “useful idiots”. They live in darkness, walk in darkness, and darkness will follow them around!

  10. I think that all the states that allowed mail in ballets should throw all votes out and have all those states re vote in person only thats the only fair thing to do the rest of the country voted that way everyone should. It would then be a fair election the democrats cheat and this is the only way they did it.

  11. After giving the results of this election some thought and having voted by mail-in ballot in Florida, I’ve come to the conclusion that Mr Trump’s undoing was when he declared that he wanted to stop Social Security. That wouldn’t have been necessarily bad if he had some kind of substitute program! The problem was he gave no substitute program! When I heard that remark, it was too late for me to change my vote, but I’ll tell you this: That statement “pissed me off!”

    1. I believe Pelosi is the one that said “She would stop Social Security and put all that money into General Fund and give it to all illegal immigrants.”

  12. Get ready! If this communist idiot get in. we need to be ready. Start lining up lawyers and the judges. Every time he tries to write an EO slap a ban on it. Keep him in court for four years. impeach him for four years, and then when he is out put him in jail, and put VP with him keep him happy. Little Obama next cell with old lady. Keep the pressure on him, don’t give him a break, make him beg for merci, make him suffer, he deserves every bit of it you can dish out. Make him think about what is waiting for him when he leaves office, every minute of the day and night, don’t let him sleep, stay in his dreams.

  13. biden did not have t0 go out !THE FIX WAS ALREADYIN WITH THE CROOKED DEMOCRATS.W.HY DOESN”T CONGRESS CALL BIDEN INWITH HIS CROOKED SON HUNTER ; CHARGE HIM &put him in jail!!EVEN FOOLS CAN SEE TRUMP IS A WINNER WHEN UP TO 50,000 PEOPLE CAME TO SEE HIM SPEAK’ EVERY ONE LOVES TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. I think we the people should save our money and not support the economy, When Biden steals this election. Let’s not buy new cars, and houses and lets just protect our families and use our money to support us the people.
    He is and has always been a woe with me. I lost my wife and daughter, then his son died, and he had a brain problem. His other son is a drug addict and just goes with the flow of what daddy says. Such a shame that we the people are so gullible to this man’s manipulation.

  15. Biden – that poor excuse for an Alzheimer commercial – is not and never will be my President not to mention that pot smoking slut of a VP – CAMAL Harris.
    .

  16. I tell you the truth I believe the left and China planned this all along they released this virus on the world to let this all play out this is corruption at it’s worst killing America’s and people worldwide in order to win a election that’s the deep state at it’s worst I will never trust in the democrats again. It’s sad but I wouldn’t trust them if they did do this there murder’s after 4 years of failure I wouldn’t put it past them. There evil and they take money from other countries Hunter Biden and family. I wouldn’t trust anything they do. May God protect us though this difficult time.

  17. For quite a while I was wondering where AG BARR was for 2 weeks. Now it all is slowly beginning to.make sense. I am no conspiracy theorist except to say that the Democrats were conspiring to oust President Trump after every plot attempt failed miserably. The Plot Against the President refers. Sometime in the past week I received this notification and at first a little doubtful about its contents, I logged onto another link to an interview with Dr Priezieck(hopefully spelt correctly) and he confirmed the contents which I post here without prejudice or bias in any way. My conclusion is simply based on the absence of AG BARR and his preparation to consult at the highest level of interpretation of Constitutional Law. Re: Justice Amy Coney-Barret before acting. AG BARR has now responded. The legal dance has begun. It has the hallmarks of this brief intelligence mention and I quote :
    ” Interesting developments

    This is the brilliance of Donald Trump and team. They placed an invisible watermark on ballots and told no one. Now the National Guard are going in with infra red equipment and can read which ballots are real and which are fake, and they are doing a recount.
    The Full Story!

    from James Sheets:
    THE WATERMARK on the official election ballots!!!! The original ballots are also registered on a QFS blockchcain to prevent fraud. 12 states were targeted.
    The National Guard has been deployed to 12 states: Alabama, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Texas, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Washington, Virginia, Delaware, Illinois and Kentucky and they are now counting the official ballots!!!!
    The DEMS fell right into the trap of this sting operation and TRUMP has it all!!! Fraud will be exposed for the world to see.
    And isn’t it fancy how the amazing Justice Amy was confirmed right before the election so that she can rightfully take care of the business of election fraud…. Oh and this is only the beginning of the EPIC times that lie ahead!!!
    So, did Trump win by a landslide? You will soon see that he did! Added that 20, 000 of The National Guard troops have been called up. Are they also going to arrest the crooked Governers of the Crooked pro-Biden States? I pray they do. God bless America.
