Former Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer announced on Friday that he was endorsing former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s bid for the White House.

In a release, Spencer, who was appointed by President Trump, said: “I have the utmost confidence that Mike will faithfully execute his duty as Commander in Chief.”

Spencer also said that he believes that Bloomberg will restore the United States’ global reputation while helping the country’s veterans.

Spencer served in the Trump administration but was forced to resign after he condemned the president for restoring the rank of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, who was convicted of posing with the dead body of a teenage ISIS fighter.

Bloomberg and Spencer are expected to jointly address veterans and military families in Norfolk, Va., where Bloomberg will unveil his plan for the military, ABC News reports.

According to Federal Election Commission filings, Spencer has historically supported Republicans in the past, giving sizable donations to both Mitt Romney’s and George W. Bush’s presidential campaigns.
