Author: Firdous Rasouli

US Secretary of Defense Mark Speer also lost his position after Donald Trump lost his presidential election to his opponent. For some, the question may have been, why did Donald Trump fire the Secretary of Defense after his defeat? Does he have any plans in hand or not?

The withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan based on the Taliban-US peace agreement in February was one of Trump’s most important tasks, which should have been done as soon as possible before the election, but it did not happen.

Some politicians in the United States say that Mark Speer did not support the immediate withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, and this could be one of the reasons for his expulsion from the Pentagon, but some politicians reject this view and do not accept it.

According to a Washington Post article on Mark Speer, Secretary of Defense Mark Speer sent a classified note to the White House this month after consulting with senior military officers, raising concerns about further cuts. US forces announced.

The Pentagon is in turmoil as there is deep uncertainty about how the January 20 deadline will pass. Although some Republicans have congratulated former Vice President Joe Biden on his victory, Trump administration officials have said they will fight to stay in office.

According to US media, a number of political analysts in the United States believe that Donald Trump, after losing to Biden, may harm the opposition, including Iran and North Korea, by leaving the White House. But this is not a general view, it is just a view.

It looks good that Trump now feels he is losing the election, but time will tell what Trump will do in his last few days in the White House and with these changes in key US positions.
