General James Mattis General received nearly unanimous bipartisan support for his nomination. He is respected at home and abroad. And he just couldn’t take the President’s lack of respect for the advice of the Pentagon or the value of our allies.
Read Mattis’s resignation letter here:
He frankly called out Trump for his naive and feckless treatment of our strategic allies.
“My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held and informed by over four decades of immersion in these issues. We must do everything possible to advance an international order that is most conducive to our security, prosperity and values, and we are strengthened in this effort by the solidarity of our alliances.
Because you have the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position.”
-General Jim Mattis
Our elected official know who bad this is.
The GOP and the Dems agree. This is not good.
