President-elect Donald Trump has reportedly tapped Marine Corps. General James Mattis to be the next Secretary of Defense of the U.S.

From the Washington Post:


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James N. Mattis to be secretary of defense, according to people familiar with the decision, nominating a former senior military officer who led operations across the Middle East to run the Pentagon less than four years after he hung up his uniform…

Like Trump, Mattis favors a tougher stance against U.S. adversaries abroad, especially Iran. The general, speaking at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in April, said that while security discussions often focus on terrorist groups such as the Islamic State or al-Qaeda, the Iranian regime is “the single most enduring threat to stability and peace in the Middle East.”

Mattis said the next president “is going to inherit a mess” and argued that the nuclear dealsigned by the Obama administration last year may slow Iran’s ambitions to get a nuclear weapon but will not stop them.

“In terms of strengthening America’s global standing among European and Mideastern nations alike, the sense is that America has become somewhat irrelevant in the Middle East, and we certainly have the least influence in 40 years,” Mattis said…

Recently, a former Pentagon official praised the president-elect for considering Mattis for the role, “The president-elect is smart to think about putting someone as respected as Jim Mattis in this role. He’s a warrior, scholar and straight shooter — literally and figuratively. He speaks truth to everyone and would certainly speak truth to this new commander in chief.”

Last month, Trump told the New York Times that Mattis had given him some interesting insight into the use of waterboarding as a tool against terrorism.

“General Mattis is a strong, highly dignified man. I met with him at length and I asked him that question. I said, ‘What do you think of waterboarding?’” Trump told The New York Times.

“He said — I was surprised — he said, ‘I’ve never found it to be useful.’ He said,’I’ve always found, give me a pack of cigarettes and a couple of beers and I do better with that than I do with torture.’”

“I’m not saying it changed my mind. Look, we have people that are chopping off heads and drowning people in steel cages and we’re not allowed to waterboard,” Trump said. But I’ll tell you what, I was impressed by that answer.”

This is a brilliant selection and with this selection, the President-elect continues to prove that he may far better suited for the presidency than the media has given him credit for.

His picks so far:

Sen. Jeff Sessions – Attorney General
Gen. James Mattis – Secretary of Defense
Steve Mnuchin – Secretary of the Treasury
Rep. Tom Price – Secretary of Health and Human Services
Betsy DeVos – Secretary of the Department of Education
Gov. Nikki Haley – U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations
Elaine Chao – Secretary of Transportation
Wilbur Ross – Secretary of Commerce
