Reuters' news on Trump's firing of Defense Secretary Mark Esper (Trump fires defense secretary in post-election reckoning after policy splits) includes reactions from Paul Frymer, professor of politics and CSDP faculty associate.

“He can’t control his impulses or temper and he demands loyalty to him over policy, constitution or anything else,” Frymer said.
