Donald Trump brought on the general’s when he started in office….
But ended up firing all of them …
In the end?
The ones left over had to show their allegiance to their oath of office against a commander-in chief who wanted them show ‘loyalty’ to him and do things they believed where NOT in the best interest of their country and would drag them into politics…
Today the new Commander-in-Chief is going to visit his general’s (and civilians) and listen to them…
Biden is not new to this…..
He lost a military son and he was the Vice President previously for 8 years….
When Biden makes his first trip as commander in chief to the Pentagon on Wednesday, it will be an immensely personal one for him, longtime aides and advisers say.
They say he will be seeking to restore trust among national security personnel following what they describe as years of tumult under former President Trump.
And they point out that Biden comes to the job as a military father. The president knows what it’s like to have a son deployed, and also knows the pain of losing a spouse and a child.
“He’ll be listening to the generals and not otherwise and he will not use the military as a prop,” said a longtime adviser seeking to draw a contrast with Trump.
Biden last week went to the State Department. Now, the adviser said, he’s going to the Pentagon to send the message that diplomacy is back, and so is “respect for our military and service members.”
“He’s got to encapsulate both,” the adviser said….
Spoehr described the current moment as a “honeymoon period” where service members will try to figure Biden out, noting that the president’s talk about his deceased son Beau Biden, who was a major in the Delaware Army National Guard and deployed to Iraq, plays well with the military.
During the presidential race, Biden’s campaign seized on poll numbers, including one survey by The Military Times, that showed U.S. troops favored Biden. The poll, issued a month before the election, showed that 43 percent of active-duty members of the military said they would vote for Biden while 37 percent said they were voting for Trump.
“By the end, Biden was getting a plurality of military and it was even stronger with officers,” a senior adviser to Biden recalled on Tuesday. The adviser attributed Biden’s success to “the fact that they knew him as an experienced guy who was a moderate and not a radical.”….
