I’ve long said Secretary Mattis would be the perfect choice to be the Secretary of Defense. “Mad Dog” is a highly decorated US Marine and has a reputation for being a straight shooter. I was thrilled when I heard his name being floated for Sec Def and I knew he would have an easy confirmation. As a veteran I respect Secretary Mattis immensely and he was my 1st choice to fill the position of Sec Def.
A reporter asked for his comments about the NFL players kneeling and his response was perfect. “I’m the secretary of defense,” Mattis said. “We defend the country.”
Best response I have ever heard. I’m not alone in being grateful he is our Secretary of Defense. Bravo sir.
