Esper's Split With Trump Over Sending US Troops To Kill Protests Put Him In Hot Water

When US Defense Secretary Mark Esper publicly split with President Donald Trump amid nationwide protests, he was gambling with his career.

Business Insider reports Trump was furious with Esper for not supporting him in sending in active-duty US troops to forcefully subdue protests.

Trump has repeatedly said he wants to "deploy the United States military" to stamp out the demonstrations, triggered by the death of George Floyd.
