WASHINGTON (AP) - Pentagon chief Mark Esper has fired Navy Secretary Richard Spencer over Spencer’s handling of the case of a SEAL accused of war crimes who President Donald Trump has defended.

Trump tweeted his satisfaction with Sunday’s firing of Spencer and said he’ll nominate the U.S. ambassador to Norway to replace Spencer as Navy secretary.

Spencer says he’s concluded he and the Republican president appear no longer to share the same understanding of “the key principle of good order and discipline.”
