President Donald Trump is mulling firing Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson after the midterms due to her opposition to Space Force, a new military operation Trump wants to set up to defend space, according to a Thursday Foreign Policy report.
Trump reportedly sees Wilson as trying to undermine his plan from behind the scenes.
“Some senior officials know how to disagree with [the President] without being disagreeable to him. Heather Wilson hasn’t managed to do that,” an administration official told Foreign Policy. “Her opposition to the Space Force has grated on him and I think he permanently sees her as troublesome and ineffective now.”
