Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley listens to a question while testifying on Capitol Hill in Washington before a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on the Army's fiscal 2018 budget

President Trump has announced he will nominate Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, replacing current Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford when his term expires in October 2019. Dunford is expected to serve out his term. The next chairman will serve for four years, instead of two years.

USA officials say President Donald Trump will nominate Army chief Gen. Mark Milley as his next top military adviser.

Milley served as a Green Beret and commanded troops in Afghanistan.

President Donald Trump said he'll be making an announcement on Saturday concerning the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

That decision - whether to join or withdraw from this kind of litigation - has been one for the attorney general and governor. Does anybody think this is the right way to do business? You will go down in history as a disgrace".

Milley has previously been at odds with Mr. Trump.

Milley is known as a charismatic, outgoing leader who has not been afraid to offer candid and sometimes blunt assessments to Congress.

He helped launch the Army's Security Force Assistance Brigades to help reduce the strain on Special Forces units while also ensuring that the army maintained the ability to advise friendly forces combating extremist groups. Dunford, a former commandant of the Marine Corps and commander of coalition troops in Afghanistan, is expected to serve out his term as Joint Chiefs chairman, which ends October 1. Though Trump asked Kelly over the summer to stay on as chief of staff for two more years, the two have stopped speaking in recent days. This new policy was made law in the 2017 defense authorization act.
