There are media rumblings that Secretary of Defense General Mattis may leave the administration.

Trump was asked about this in his interview with Leslie Stahl on “60 Minutes” that will air on Sunday night.
Trump said Mattis is “sort of a Democrat.”

Leslie Stahl: What about General Mattis, is he going to leave?

President Trump: I don’t know, he hasn’t told me, but I have a very good relationship with him. I had lunch with him two days ago.

Leslie Stahl: Do you want him to?

President Trump: It could be that he is, 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, I mean at some point, everybody leaves.

Mattis supported the flawed Iranian nuke deal.
