Trump picks acting Pentagon chief and former Boeing executive Patrick Shanahan to become next secretary of Defense



~President Donald Trump has picked acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan to fully take over the top spot at the Pentagon.

~Shanahan, a former Boeing executive, needs Senate confirmation now that he is being nominated to the role previously held by James Mattis.

~Shanahan would come to the role with no experience either in the military or in foreign policy, except for his work in the Trump administration.


WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump plans to nominate acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan to formally take over the top spot at the Pentagon, the president's spokeswoman said Thursday.
Shanahan needs Senate confirmation for the post most recently held by James Mattis.
"Based upon his outstanding service to the Country and his demonstrated ability, President Trump intends to nominated Patrick M. Shanahan to be the Secretary fo Defense," White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders wrote in a tweet.


This is fairly insane on all sorts of fronts.....

Zero experience at the top of that department...

The above is a typical Trump boot licker who has never formally acknowledged any negative from his golden king.....

The temp, after Mattis resigned, (another one) is not qualified imo….

We'll see what happens in Congress....

Former Boeing Exec... as head of Dept of Defense...

You highlighted a false statement as though it was a crucial truth.
~Shanahan comes to the role with no experience either in the military or in foreign policy, except for his work in the Trump administration.
This guy has plenty of military experience and frankly foreign experience for the job previous to working Trump. even if that is all he has, it was for two years.

Primer for the ill informed,,,;

Administrations are elected for only four.
Trump was elected because he is anti establishment. Why would he want to always chose a career bureaucrat.
Boeing does military contracts

Don't be too hard on him. This is the kind of stuff libs get spoon-fed on MSNBC.

Dude has been the acting director for 2 years, yet libs wanna claim he has no experience for the job.
