Secretary of Defense Mark Esper told NBC News Tuesday evening that he "didn't know" where he was going when he walked with President Donald Trump Monday night.
"I thought I was going to do two things: to see some damage and to talk to the troops," he said, adding he had "no idea" protesters were forcefully cleared from a park so that Trump could take photos at a damaged church.
Earlier in the day, a senior defense official stressed that Esper had not even planned to attend the event at the White House.
