Secretary of Defense Mark Esper has prepared a letter of resignation, according to NBC News.
It has long been rumored that President Trump would dismiss Esper in the days after the election.
As his tenure is coming to an end, Esper is reportedly helping members of Congress draft legislation that would remove names of Confederate leaders from military bases.
