Months After Leaving Office, Obama Quietly Influencing Military Decisions

It’s indisputable that Barack Obama severely weakened our military during his time in office. His administration treated our service members like a large-scale social experiment, and many were hopeful that Donald Trump would turn the tide. But it seems like Obama’s shadow is still looming over our troops, even though he’s no longer in the White House.

The Obama administration made climate change a huge priority for the Pentagon, pushing for more renewable energy sources in the military. And Trump’s military leaders don’t seem eager to change that.

Richard V. Spencer, Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of the Navy, spoke during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Armed Services Committee, which unanimously confirmed Spencer. “The Navy, from my briefings to date, is totally aware of rising water issues, storm issues, etc.,” Spencer said. “We must protect our infrastructure, and I will work hard to make sure we are keeping an eye on that because without the infrastructure, we lose readiness.”
