The Pentagon announced further resignations a day after President Donald Trump’s sacking of US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.
On Monday, President Donald Trump fired Pentagon chief Mark Esper and announced Miller would take the post of acting defense secretary.
“Today the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Dr. James Anderson, Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Mr. Joseph Kernan and the Chief of Staff of the Secretary At the Defense, Jen Stewart submitted letters of resignation, ”the statement said Tuesday.

The president is also expected to fire FBI Director Christopher Wray and CIA Director Gina Haspel.
