Mattis: Trump says defense chief’s job is ‘100 percent’ safe

Donald Trump Jim Mattis US Us news US defence secretary news world news

His remark comes after U.S. broadcaster CBS on Sunday aired an interview with Trump, in which he suggested Mattis may be headed out the Pentagon door. I will say this: I don't want to give trillions and trillions of dollars.

"Of course, I don't think about leaving", Mr Mattis told Pentagon reporters last month. He added: "I have a good energy with him". "I would put my money on General Mattis every day of the week and twice on Sunday, in terms of knowing more about military policy, theory, and doctrine". It could be that he is.

When asked about Mattis' potential departure, Trump replied, "Well, I don't know". I mean- I'm not a baby. "Everybody. People leave", the President said. However Mattis had never identified himself as a Republican, nor as a Democrat. That's what President Trump has told me to do, and I eagerly carry that out, alongside probably the most selfless young men and women - not all young; some old men and women, too - civilian and military, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines working together. "I have some people that I'm not thrilled with", Trump said, without mentioning names.

Western officials privately extol Mr Mattis, whose standing among North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies has risen as they become increasingly bewildered by Mr Trump's policies on trade and Iran, and disoriented by his outreach to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump has made a hard-line policy on immigration a centerpiece of his agenda, but Mattis has publicly cited the valuable contributions that non-citizen members of the military have made over the years. "But General Mattis is a good guy".

Speculation that Trump may fire Mattis has been mounting for months. A few hours earlier, Mattis told reporters traveling with him that he and Trump had never discussed the possibility of Mattis leaving the Pentagon job.

The exchange on Mr Mattis came after Mr Trump alluded to upcoming changes in his cabinet, which last week saw the surprise resignation of Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations.

It also reflects a White House headed by a president who is increasingly frustrated with his team, and more willing to follow his own counsel in matters of domestic and foreign policy. We get along very well.

Such visits by USA defense secretaries have until now been exceedingly rare, and Mattis's presence strongly signals the importance Washington sees in further enhancing ties with a former foe amid rising tensions with China.
