Former Secretary of Defense, James Mattis, released a statement attacking Donald Trump, even comparing him to Hitler. The former Trump staffer blasted the president, claiming he has not handled the violent riots properly. President Trump then had his turn to respond. And it was brutal.
When it was announced that Donald Trump was going to make James Mattis his secretary of defense, many in the Armed Forces were excited. Mattis had a reputation as an affective Marine general. People believed his skill and experience would elevate our military to a new high standard.
And that was true, for a time. But it became clear that Mattis’ leadership was not the kind of leadership Trump wanted. The president believes in a strong, lethal military. But he is not eager to please the military industrial complex with endless overseas wars. When it was clear that Mattis wanted a war with Iran, Trump cut him loose.
You don’t have to be a psychic to see Mattis is now a bitter, disgruntled ex-employee. Wanting to appeal to the D.C. swamp, he released a bogus statement smearing his former boss. President Trump was not about to sit back and let this mad dog have his say.
President Donald Trump slammed former Secretary of Defense James Mattis late on Wednesday after Mattis released a controversial statement about the president’s handling of the violent riots across the country.
“Probably the only thing Barack Obama & I have in common is that we both had the honor of firing Jim Mattis, the world’s most overrated General,” Trump wrote. “I asked for his letter of resignation, & felt great about it. His nickname was “Chaos,” which I didn’t like, & changed to “Mad Dog.”
“His primary strength was not military, but rather personal public relations,” Trump continued. “I gave him a new life, things to do, and battles to win, but he seldom “brought home the bacon.” I didn’t like his “leadership” style or much else about him, and many others agree. Glad he is gone!” [Source: Daily Wire]
It’s pretty shocking that a former defense secretary would publicly attack a sitting president like this. Trump is 100% justified in firing back. Just think about it. Mattis watched Obama defund our military and turned it into a laughing stock. Mattis said nothing.
Obama pushed gender politics in our military, forcing it to waste millions on reassignment surgeries. Mattis said nothing. Obama endangered the United States, Israel, and the world by relaxing sanctions on Iran and giving them $2 billion. Again, Mattis said nothing.
Meanwhile, Trump has rebuilt our military, empowered our soldiers, and has helped countless veterans. He’s wiped out ISIS, brought Iran to its knees, and deescalated tensions with North Korea. Yet Mattis feels it appropriate to criticize and slander this president?
Either Mattis is truly mad or he’s yet another D.C. hack, in service of globalists and the ruling elite. He would never tarnish the name of Barack Obama, but would slime a man actually doing something for our country.
This is what it all comes down to, folks. Us versus them. Don’t believe the lies of rioters and Antifa. The real enemies are Democrats and Republicans who serve rich, power-hungry lobbyists and special interest groups. Men and women who want endless wars, to ship our jobs overseas, and to flood our nation with crime and destruction.
Mattis is just a mouthpiece for the same people who impeached Trump, accused him of colluding with Russia, who shut down our nation, and are now encouraging violent riots.
There’s a reason we call these villains “the Swamp.” And if we sit back and let them, they’ll drag us back into the Dark Ages.
The only solution is to make sure none of them have jobs this November.
