Dear James Mattis: Why Haven’t You Quit Yet?

21 Aug

What on earth are you still doing in the Trump administration? Why haven’t you quit yet?

“Mattis is out of the loop and Trump doesn’t listen to him, say officials.” That was the headline to an online scoop from NBC News in late June. “The president,” reported NBC’s Alex Seitz-Wald, “has cooled on Mattis, in part because he’s come to believe his defense secretary looks down on him and slow-walks his policy directives, according to current and former administration officials.”

One colleague of yours from the Pentagon confirmed to NBC News that you’re “not in the inner decision-making circle anymore.”
