January 16 As the handover of power in the United States approaches, Acting U.S. Defense Secretary Christopher Miller will leave in less than a week. U.S. media quoted a written record released by the U.S. Department of Defense on the 15th that Miller was eager to finish the job.
“I mean… I can’t wait to finish this job, trust me.” According to CNN, according to a memorandum issued by the U.S. Department of Defense, Miller made this statement after concluding his visit to Nebraska, Tennessee and Colorado on Thursday (14th).
According to the report, Miller also discussed the U.S. F-35 fighter on the same day, calling it a “monster”.
The defense official who visited Miller said that Miller often talked to reporters and entourage in humorous words during the journey, which often did not convey well through written transcripts, but the participants on the scene were deeply impressed.
Shortly after Election Day 2020, Trump announced on Twitter on November 9, 2020 that he fired former Defense Secretary Mark Esper and announced Miller as acting Secretary of Defense.
According to U.S. media reports, Miller has served in the U.S. Special Forces for many years. From joining the Special Forces in 1993 to retiring from the Army in 2014, he experienced the 2001 Afghanistan War and the 2003 Iraq War.
During his service, he was repeatedly deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq, and he has rich experience in dealing with special operations and security wars.
