Senator David Perdue Meets With Joint Chiefs Chairman Nominee, General Mark Milley
Monday, July 22nd, 2019
U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), chairman of the Senate Armed Services Seapower Subcommittee, met with General Mark A. Milley, President Donald J. Trump’s nominee to be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
“General Mark Milley is a battle-tested leader with decades of experience fighting on the frontlines of many of our country’s recent conflicts. General Milley and I discussed our shared concerns about the $22 trillion national debt crisis, as well as the devastating impact a potential continuing resolution would have on our military’s ability to defend Americans at home and abroad. In recent years, the battle has shifted from global terrorism to great power competition. President Trump needs a military advisor with the skills to navigate complex threats from China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea, in addition to terrorism, across all five domains: air, land, sea, cyber, and space. There’s no doubt in my mind that General Milley is the right person at the right time for this job.”
