Should President Trump win a second term, he plans on immediately firing FBI Director Christopher Wray, two people who have discussed the matter with Trump told Axios. Trump is also expected to quickly replace CIA Director Gina Haspel and Defense Secretary Mark Esper. They aren't the only three people on the chopping block, the sources said, but are at the top of the list. One official said Trump hasn't fired any of them because of the optics of doing this before the election. Haspel and Wray do not have any fans in Trump's inner circle, Axios reports, and Trump was enraged in September when the FBI director testified that there are no signs of widespread election fraud, despite Trump claiming otherwise.
