Trump to make announcement on Joint Chiefs of staff

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said he’ll be making an announcement on Saturday concerning the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Trump, who often likes to build drama and suspense by teasing his decisions, tells reporters at the White House Friday that he’s going to be making an announcement at Saturday’s Army-Navy game in Philadelphia.

He says: “I can give you a little hint: It will have to do with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and succession.”

Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will be done his second term in 2018.

Dunford was nominated to the post in 2015 by former President Barack Obama. Trump nominated him for a second two-year term last year.
