    Donald Trump fired Defense Secretary Mark Esper on Monday, the latest official to lose his job after clashing with the president. Trump had split with Esper over a range of issues and was particularly angered by his public opposition to Trump’s threats to use active duty military forces this summer to suppress street protests over racial injustice after police killed George Floyd in Minneapolis. Officials worry the highly unusual move could project domestic instability.
