POTUS hand picked US Secretary of Defense resigned because #TRUMP is cozying up to authoritarian regimes, alienating NATO allies, and destroying our long-standing policies.
The Trump Syria pullout is being defended by only the most ardent, diehard Trump fans. Others who have stuck up for him in the past have now deserted him Because It is a reckless move.
If @GOP can't read the writing on the non existent #Mexico wall or hear the sirens, they should resign. Dear government - https://deargovernment.info
US Defense Secretary James Mattis, well known as Mad Dog Mattis had enough of POTUS. He’s mad as hell and wont take it any longer. This means that we’re about as close as we have gotten to another military crisis.
Maddis is the last general to leave #Trump. He’s considered to be the grownup who was trying to contain his madness and chaos.
General Mattis’ resignation is a very big deal at home and abroad and it signifies that the true mad dog is running rampant in DC.
Mattis "My views on treating allies with respect and also being clear-eyed about both malign actors and strategic competitors are strongly held." he goes on "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 positions."
When Trump first took office, he said my generals ... are going to keep us so safe ... and the last of the wooden soldiers is Madog Mattis.
This highly-respected Secretary of Defense has had enough of Trump’s foreign policies, his disdain for allies and unacceptable alliances and coddling up with America’s nemeses.

This is only a partial list... more out the door below... Donald Trump hasn’t been president for 2 years.
Perhaps one of his best people was correct when he said #Trump "a terrible human being".
Wake up Republican majority before its too late and for all of US. The final straw for Mattis was Trump’s action which would cause a potential Kurdish bloodbath. Fasten your seat belts and #buckleup #Ameerica because this is far from being over and no one seems to know how many of his best hires will go before it ends.
