Referring to Donald Trump’s inauguration as the 45th U.S. president, defense secretary Ash Carter said Tuesday that in the next few weeks, all government agencies, including the Defense Department (DoD), will undergo significant changes.
Carter said his first priority is “continuing to make sure that we’re meeting all of our challenges, which include the destruction of the Islamic State, standing strong against the potential of aggression everywhere else around the world, and continuing to build the most innovative and powerful military in the world.”
Meanwhile, thousands of people across America have come on streets to protest against the election of Donald Trump as the next President of the country.
After nearly 20 months of campaign rigmarole, the U.S. presidential election came to an end on November 8 when the Republican candidate Trump won the race to become the 45th President of America.
As Trump failed to win the popular vote because of his vulgar language and hate remarks against different groups of people during his campaigns, many people have refused to accept him as the President. The protests against him are expected to intensify over the weekend.
The defense secretary said his second priority is “helping the president-elect and his team undergo an orderly transition, and I’m responsible for the Defense Department to oversee that transition.”
Carter said he will help President-elect Trump hit the ground running as the U.S. commander-in-chief in the best way possible.
