Trump’s Ignorance Kills

August 21, 2017

President Trump knows nothing of the administration of a government and has failed to fill nominations for offices that require Senate confirmation.

In the case of the U.S. Department of Defense, eight months into his Administration his nominee, Richard Spencer,  for the U.S. Navy Secretary position has yet to be confirmed.

John F. Lehman, President Reagan’s Navy Secretary, nominated on January 29, 1980, instituted a program to investigate all accidents involving all Navy ships and aircraft–immediately upon being confirmed.

The collision on August 21 of another U.S. Navy warship, the John S. McCain, with a tanker is the second in two months.

This lack of oversight at the U.S. Navy Department is due to the President’s ignorance.  That ignorance kills.
