The Mattis Resignation, Mike Harris on Press TV


US Defense Secretary James Mattis abruptly announced his resignation in protest against President Donald Trump’s decisions including pulling troops out of Syria and a drawdown in Afghanistan. With the ousting this month of John F. Kelly as White House chief of staff, James Mattis was the last of Mr. Trump’s old-guard national security team, leaving policy in the hands of Mike Pompeo and John Bolton.

  1. Brilliant TV interview Mike, you were very clear, astute, articulate, concise and made a ton of excellent points. You would make a great Secretary of Defense. I hope someone close to Donald Trump follows you on Veterans Today and advises him to contact you for an interview.

  2. Both guys had a lot of good points. There is a palpable cohesion forming in the anti-war populace, that should be nurtured like a suckling. I’ll hold off on credit for Trump because we don’t know fully why he did it.
    The military veteran population in the US is decidedly anti-war by a huge percentage.
