“I have people now on standby that will be phenomenal,” he continued. “I think I have a great Cabinet. There are some people that I’m not happy with. I have some people that I’m not thrilled with, and there are some people that I’m beyond thrilled with.”

Stahl then asked specifically about Mattis, whose departure has been rumored for weeks, to which Trump replied: “I had lunch with him two days ago, I have a very good relationship with him. It could be that he is [leaving],” adding “I think he’s sort of a Democrat if you want to know the truth. But General Mattis is a good guy. We get along very well. He may leave at some point. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. People leave, that’s Washington.”

    1. Hal, do you have a military background?
      Soldiers, for the most part, are apolitical. They come in, take command, complete the mission and move on.
      Phillip Sheridan in the Civil War, Patton in WWII, Schwarzkopf in the Gulf War.

      ‘Soldier On’, Gen. Mattis!!

  2. I think trump should try to keep him only because of how far Trump has come on foreign policy. I assumed it was Mattis who guided Trumps decisions regarding North Korea, ISIS, Syria, etc. If Mattis did not push for the decisions that Trump made, then get rid of him. If Mattis was responsible for the successes in our foreign policy, give the man a raise.
