Why is President Trump changing military leadership at this time?

It's news around here (UK) that President Trump is placing friends in to top military and security positions at this time.

I pasted a bunch of reports below for your information.
Now why do you think he would be doing that at this time?

Political coup. His fragile ego will not accept that the majority of Americans have said “GET LOST!”

Hi Rusha ...
Yes, Mike Pompeio has been on the TV saying that transition of power will be effected smoothly. Goodness only knows how he is getting on with the President just now.

I don't believe that military leaders will turn weapons upon American citizens, no matter what their politics might be.

Republicans will always have their political beliefs, but just now I think they're crossing the floor because national pride surely comes before party pride.

Only the extremist tribalists will be left behind.

This just makes me laugh. Nothing but conspiracy theories tailored just for socialists.

Government leaders have been doing this for thousands of years. Every Democrat president in history put his friends in leadership positions. But if Trump does it it's a major reason to think the world is coming to an end.

OK. That's fair.
I'm sure you're right.
President Trump will hand over the leadership with good grace, just as his Vice President has already suggested.

Well that's great.
