Commandant of the Marines: Your wall stunt is unacceptable to our combat readiness and solvency
The President of the United States has just been officially warned by the Commandant of the Marines, the highest-ranking position in the Marines Corps.
In two internal memos, Marine Corps General Robert Neller said that the "unplanned/unbudgeted" deployment along the border from President Trump has forced him to cancel or reduce military training in at least five countries and delay urgent repairs at bases.
He's had enough. He's now speaking out at the Pentagon because of it.
The Los Angeles Times personally obtained two of those memos, dated March 18 and March 19.
In those memos, Neller wrote a nasty letter to the Secretary of the Navy, saying that Trump was "negatively impacting Marines Corps readiness" by his ineffective leadership. He called it "unacceptable."
Remember, this is the top Marine in the country speaking.
We are only able to hear about this thanks to the great reporting from the LA Times. Read more about this breaking story HERE.
