Mark Esper sworn-in as Trump’s Defense Secretary

The Senate backed Esper, a former soldier and lobbyist for weapons maker Raytheon Co., to be President Donald Trump’s second confirmed leader of the Pentagon by 90-8.

There has been no confirmed defense secretary since Jim Mattis resigned in December over policy differences with Trump.

An Army veteran, Esper had served as a congressional aide and a Pentagon official under Republican President George W. Bush before working for Raytheon.

He has been Army secretary since November 2017.
