> WASHINGTON — President Biden has nominated two female generals to elite, four-star commands, the Defense Department announced, months after their Pentagon bosses had agreed on their promotions but held them back out of fears that President Donald J. Trump would reject the officers because they were women. … > The unusual strategy to delay the officers’ promotions — intended to protect their accomplished careers — was devised last fall by Mark T. Esper, the defense secretary at the time, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. > They both thought the two generals were exceptional officers deserving of the commands. **But under Mr. Trump, they worried that any candidates other than white men for jobs mostly held by white men might run into resistance once their nominations reached the White House.** [my bold] … – good riddance white house and pentagon donnie clones – suck that righted wrong.

*The unusual strategy to delay the officers’ promotions — intended to protect their accomplished careers — was devised last fall by Mark T. Esper, the defense secretary at the time, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.* Wow.

Good God, the great orange overloaded was so fragile that he couldn’t stand to promote people in the military, with all the recommendations of their superiors to a position that they deserved…. because they are women. This guy really tried to take this country back into the 1950s, thank God he was only a one term president.
