General James Mattis took a shot at Donald Trump during an October 17 speech, saying that he was actually honored that the president would put him in the same "overrated" category as Meryl Streep. "So, I guess I'm the Meryl Streep of generals. And you do have to admit that between me and Meryl, at least we've had some victories".
When Mattis stepped down, the former protection secretary, who sparred with Trump over militia actions between 2016 and 2018, mentioned the president deserved to contain somebody "whose views are better aligned" in his Cupboard.
He said his time on the battlefield had been "hard work" but it wasn't until he started working in Washington that he "realised how easy I had it overseas in a combat zone".
"I think the correct particular person in the militia that Mr. Trump doesn't think is overrated", the unusual mentioned, "is Colonel Sanders". On Sunday, Mattis offered words of caution regarding Trump's decision to pull US troops out of Syria during an interview on "Meet the Press", warning that the Islamic State would "resurge" without military pressure in the region. Trump added, "I captured ISIS". Bone spurs were cited as the reason why Trump couldn't be drafted.
The softly spoken but battle-hardened former Marine left the administration a year ago, saying in his resignation letter that Trump's worldview was irreconcilable with his own.
The jibes were a departure for Mattis, whose book Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead, published last month, was met with criticism from some who said he had pulled punches in characterizing the president's erratic leadership style. "The counselor says I'll graduate soon".
Nonetheless for more than just a few observers, Mattis's zingers drew consideration to the militia officer's reticence to substantively criticize the president. "Donald Trump earned his spurs in a letter from a doctor'". "The other is the rise of an ambitious leader, unfettered by conscience, or precedent or decency, who would make himself supreme", Mattis said. Upon his resignation, he gave Trump a letter outlining his reasoning.
