Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who resigned due to disagreements with Donald Trump, criticized the head of state’s actions in this situation.
The esteemed general retired said that Donald Trump is the first president in his memory who does not seek to unite the American people and does not even pretend to try to do so. Instead, convinced the former minister, Donald Trump is trying to divide the Americans. Jim Mattis is convinced that the involvement of the president of the army will only create an “artificial conflict” between the military and civil society.
The former minister’s statement was published by The Atlantic. Trump reacted by calling Mattis “the most overrated general in the world” on Twitter and added that he was happy that Jim Mattis had left.
