Gen. Jim Mattis has turned in his letter of resignation as Secretary of Defense, and like everything Mattis did for the last two years, it was tinged with Trump hatred and lack of understanding of Trump’s America First policies.
Mattis, in particular, talked about how he thinks you need to treat allies with respect, then added:
“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.”
Um, yeah. Actually it would have been better if you had never taken the position in the first place. Trump is letting our allies know they had better start treating us with respect, not the other way around.
But the good news is that Mattis joins Gen. Kelly and Gen. McMaster on the outside looking in. These globalists have been doing the bidding of the Deep State, not President Trump, and with them going overboard there is a chance Trump can now right the ship of state.
No doubt Mattis is against the US getting out of Syria, and that precipitated his resignation, but for those of us who don’t want to see the US playing the world’s policeman, Trump’s change of policy is the right thing to do.
Between the apparently sincere threat today to shut down the government over border security and the news of Mattis’s departure, it’s need a good day and more proof of “Why We Needed Trump.”
