Introduction: Trump's discontent with Wilson stems from Wilson's weakening or slowing down of the president's orders, according to the Foreign Policy magazine website, because the government thinks Wilson is "trying to undermine the president's agenda from within".
U.S. media quoted people familiar with the matter as saying that U.S. President Trump was planning to dismiss Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson for his dissatisfaction with the formation of the Sky Force.
Wilson may be dismissed after November's mid-term congressional elections, but no final decision has yet been made on the issue, the Foreign Policy magazine website reported on October 4.
Trump was unhappy with Wilson because Wilson weakened or slowed down the president's orders, the Foreign Policy magazine website said, because the government thought Wilson was "trying to undermine the president's agenda from within". Last month, a new book by well-known American journalist Bob Woodward revealed that some members of Trump's cabinet were quietly trying to weaken or slow down the president's orders, and Wilson was also seen as part of it.
Reported that just after Trump announced the establishment of the Sky Army this summer, the White House had refused to accept a preliminary draft prepared by the Air Force, the draft also triggered President Trump's anger. "The White House's reaction is: This is not what we want, this is not what the president wants, throw it away," the source said.
It is worth noting that the government is already discussing new ministers. Perhaps the most competitive is Republican Congressman Mike Rogers, who has long supported the idea of space militarization.
The White House on Thursday denied that Trump was going to fire the Air Force secretary. White House spokesman Lindsay Walters said: "The president did not discuss the dismissal of Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson. All the reports were false.
U.S. President Trump has previously issued a mission to form a separate space-oriented force, the Sky Army, and urged "to establish U.S. dominance in space." He said the United States is committed to becoming a space leader and is not going to lag behind Russia and China in this area.
On September 14, U.S. Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson signed an internal memorandum establishing the Sky Army, describing the proposed "Sky Army" as "an organization focused on lethality that will take advantage of space."
According to the Associated Press, Wilson wrote in the new Air Arms Memorandum: "The President has clearly expressed his desire to establish a Heavenly Army." "Strategic competition with Russia and China is the focus of our approach."
According to the air force estimates, the heavenly army may have more than 13000 personnel. According to the memorandum, the cost of the first year of the new military service was about $3.3 billion, compared with $12.9 billion in five years, requiring all existing space personnel to remain in the Air Force and other services "until Congress establishes a new service".
