Gen. Robert Neller, the commandant of the Marine Corps, let internal Defense Department memos leak recently to show the damage President Donald Trump’s wall obsession is doing to military families and combat readiness.
According to a Newsweek report, the unexpected influx of troops and costs at the U.S.-Mexico border, a direct result of Trump’s fixation on building a wall, have caused languishing repairs on hurricane-damaged bases and a decline in training exercises.
Neller reportedly gave the green light on leaks to NBC News and The LA Times.
