Trump was talked out of firing Defense Secretary Esper, says WSJ

As per the WSJ, President Trump reportedly wanted to dismiss Defense Secretary Mark Esper last week over conflicting views on the use of active-duty troops to quell nationwide protests. He, however, was counseled by advisors to shelve such a plan. Earlier, Esper had said he did not support invoking the Insurrection Act over protests following the police killing of George Floyd.

Can we stop, on both sides of the aisle, please stop blaming each other and condemning each other for what someone TALKED about doing? I've been talked out of a lot of emotional bad responses. I hope I never have to be accountable for all the things I almost did.
