Former Trump Secretary of Defense, retired General James Mattis, ignited a political conflagration when he penned a scathing article about his old boss handling the unrest in America.
It’s rather unfortunate since nothing can take away from Mattis’ distinguished military record. His troops were devoted to him. But his time spent with D.C.’s elite since leaving the White House seems to have infected him with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Trump Train News columnist Deroy Murdock recently appeared on Fox News to dismantle the profoundly misguided warrior’s new take.
Per Fox News:
“He begins by saying very nice things about the protesters, that they want equal justice under the law, we all want that,” Murdock began. “Then he has this amazing sentence, ‘We must not be distracted by a small number of lawbreakers.’
“What? Are you kidding me? We are not just talking about a couple of people [who] broke away from peaceful protests, put a little bit of shaving cream of the windshield of a police car, something like that,” he added. “We’re talking about massive looting, attacks on everything from Target to Macy’s to Rolex.”
“Mattis, as a member of the Cabinet, was at the State Of The Union — he was sitting in the front row — when Donald J. Trump said this [in] 2018: ‘I want to talk about what kind of future we are going to have, what kind of nation we are going to be. All of us together as one team, one people and one American family,'” Murdock said. “That seems like an effort to try to unify us.
“Then you look at the policies he supported. For example, supporting historically black colleges and universities, providing federal funding, finding corporate sponsors to help with their apprenticeship programs,” he went on. “I think the huge thing he’s done is to try to unify the country.”
Murdock also mentioned Trump’s success enacting criminal justice reform, something the Obama administration never delivered on.
