REPORT: Trump Backs Down In Navy SEAL Battle

Axios reports:

The Navy has been informed that the White House will not intervene to halt the SEALs from removing Chief Petty Officer Eddie Gallagher from their unit, AP reports.

The backstory: Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer and the Navy SEALs’ leading admiral Collin Green have threatened to resign or be fired if President Trump stops plans to expel Gallagher, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

Gallagher is a Fox News favorite and attacked Spencer and Green during a “Fox & Friends” appearance on Sunday morning. Many at the Pentagon think Trump’s intervention could undermine military discipline.
