Former Navy Sec. Richard Spencer Slams Donald Trump In First Interview After Being Ousted

During his first interview since being fired, former Secretary of the Navy Richard Spence blasted President Donald Trump and warned that the president is sending a message that troops, “can get away with things.”

“We have to have good order and we have to have good order and discipline,” he explained. “It’s the backbone of what we do.”

Asked about Trump’s contention that he protects America’s “warfighters,” Spencer said: “I don’t think he really understands the full definition of a warfighter. A warfighter is a profession of arms and a profession of arms has to have standards that they have to be held to and that they hold themselves to.”

Watch the interview below, via CBS News.
