Tomorrow morning, President Biden and VP Harris will meet with Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, WH says. In the afternoon, he’ll sign an executive order on “American manufacturing and American workers.”

Ret. General Lloyd Austin is the new secretary of defense, after Senate confirmation Friday. He went straight to the Pentagon to meet with the joint chiefs:

If @LloydAustin  is confirmed as SecDef today he is expected to attend 'an executive tank session" early Friday with Joint Chiefs, emphasis on making #COVID19  suppot a top department priority.

Does the US anticipate entering into a "hot war" with #China ? Former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Adm. Winnefeld tells @margbrennan  US agencies will use "elements of economic power, information power, and military power as a deterrent, rather than a hot war"

#ChatgateBetraysForces  | Pulwama Martyrs kin outraged. Demand answers to questions. 'Will the Chiefs of India's Armed Forces put out joint statement condemning the vulture politics of a so-called nationalist TV anchor who rejoiced when troops were being attacked in Pulwama?'

See where this notes the Pentagon’s history of downplaying white nationalism and extremism immediately prior to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs saying, “These people are not representative of our country’s military.” Seems a bit premature to say that, no?

Pelosi to House Democrats: “This morning, I spoke to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley to discuss available precautions for preventing an unstable president from initiating military hostilities or accessing the launch codes and ordering a nuclear strike.”

NEW: Former Joint Chiefs Chair Mike Mullen tells @JudyWoodruff  Trump "incited" failed insurrection, says Trump "not in position to lead the next 14 days." Warns "I don't think we're done. Today was not it. We need to act in a preventive way to prevent more from happening."

This is nuts. The Acting Secretary of Defense acknowledging that he and the Joint Chiefs Chairman did not discuss deploying the National Guard with President Trump - but rather with VP Pence and Congressional leaders.

General Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff — speaking directly to Donald Trump. Shots fired...

Call me crazy but, as a citizen, I’d like to hear from the Attorney General, the Secretaries of Defense & Homeland Security, & from the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, that THEY will ensure a peaceful transfer of power if Donald Trump loses, since he won’t make the commitment

“We're at war with COVID-19, we're at war with terrorists, and we are at war with the drug cartels . . . We're the United States military and we will defend our country." —General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs

And third, an extraordinary essay by the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. Armed Forces, Mike Mullen, explaining the values at risk when we start using our military to control domestic protests.

Powell; Mullen; Dempsey-three former chairs of the Joint Chiefs of Staff-have rebuked the @POTUS . So have Generals Mattes and Allen. America’s most highly respected former military leaders are speaking out. This is unprecedented.

It was my Great Honor to attend this mornings Welcome Ceremony for the 20th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley!
