The tweet was a sign that Trump plans to be active for the next two-and-a-half months, even as he contests the election.Mark Meadows, Trump’s chief of staff, warned Esper prior to Trump’s tweet.

That includes personnel moves. Trump is considering dismissing FBI Director Christopher Wray, aides said; they also expect CIA Director Gina Haspel to depart.
