Defense Secretary Jim Mattis abruptly announced he would be resigning Thursday after President Trump decided to go rogue and put America First on foreign policy for a change by pulling out of the endless quagmire in Syria.
The entire Washington establishment had a complete meltdown in response.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis abruptly said he was resigning Thursday, a day after President Donald Trump overruled his advice against pulling troops out of Syria and pressed forward on discussions to withdraw forces from Afghanistan.
Trump said in a tweet that Mattis was retiring, but that’s not what Mattis said.Our "great Kurdish allies" are saying they're going to release 3,200 ISIS fighters in retaliation for Trump pulling out of Syria.
Really great "allies" these people are.
