Trump Lies and General Mattis Resigns
Shocking Washington to its core with a government shutdown just hours away, General James Mattis has resigned abruptly.
President Trump, who has claimed to know more than the generals, announced on Twitter that he was withdrawing U.S. military troops from Syria. It should be noted that withdrawing the troops results in Putin and Russia’s position in Syria strengthening, which helps Syrian President Bashar al Assad. Once again, Putin is celebrating thanks to President Trump.
In his resignation letter, Mattis cites February 28, 2019 as his last day on the job, but Trump no doubt will look to replace him as soon as possible. Mattis did appear for work today.
In Mattis’ resignation letter, he could not be more clear that he is resigning, as well as the reasons why. Yet, President Trump cannot even tell the truth about that. At this point, there is no denying that President Trump is an incompetent pathological liar. There’s no need to elaborate on either as both are very well documented and as much as President Trump believes he knows more than the generals, he doesn’t.
Per President Trump’s tweets, General Mattis is not resigning, but retiring. More lies, more disinformation by President Trump. I can only imagine what Trump’s base will believe and what false stories they will share on social media.
I’m surprised Mattis lasted this long. A four-star general who works for a President that admires Vladimir Putin, but the writing was on the “U.S. – Mexico border wall” when President Trump in yet another ignorant statement, said in an interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” that Mattis was “sort of a Democrat.”
“General Jim Mattis will be retiring, with distinction, at the end of February, after having served my Administration as Secretary of Defense for the past two years. During Jim’s tenure, tremendous progress has been made, especially with respect to the purchase of new fighting….
….equipment. General Mattis was a great help to me in getting allies and other countries to pay their share of military obligations. A new Secretary of Defense will be named shortly. I greatly thank Jim for his service!“
Senator Lindsey Graham also spoke out in defense of General Mattis and in opposition to President Trump.
“It is not FAKE NEWS that Russia, Iran, and Assad are unhappy about our decision to withdraw from Syria.
They are ECSTATIC!”
President Trump is now going to war with everyone, including Senator Graham.
“So hard to believe that Lindsey Graham would be against saving soldier lives & billions of $$$. Why are we fighting for our enemy, Syria, by staying & killing ISIS for them, Russia, Iran & other locals? Time to focus on our Country & bring our youth back home where they belong!”
