USA officials say President Donald Trump will nominate Army chief Gen. Mark Milley as his next top military adviser. The chairman is the highest-ranking military officer in the country and serves as the principal military adviser to the president.
President Donald Trump said he'll be making an announcement on Saturday concerning the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Typically, the successor to the chairman would not be selected until next year, given that Dunford is due to serve until October 1, 2019. Though Trump asked Kelly over the summer to stay on as chief of staff for two more years, the two have stopped speaking in recent days.
He also served as deputy commanding general of USA forces in Afghanistan.
His term as Joint Chiefs chairman ends October 1. He has been Army chief of staff since 2015.
