President Trump spoke out in a press conference on Wednesday about Secretary of Defense James Mattis leaving his position. President Trump claims he essentially fired Mattis for not getting the job done in Afghanistan. Trump went off on the fact that he gave Mattis over $700 Billion to increase the military, yet he wouldn’t end the war. Trump continued to claim Mattis wanted to get involved in the war between ISIS and al qaeda when they were fighting each other.
