Donald Trump speaks to Jim Mattis (Pentagon)

The upcoming book by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Bob Woodward has unnerved President Donald Trump to the point where White House officials are discussing replacing Secretary of Defense James Mattis, Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin reported Wednesday.

“The speculation about who replaces Mattis is now more real than ever,” according to a senior White House official granted anonymity to discuss internal matters.

“The president has always respected him. But now he has every reason to wonder what Mattis is saying behind his back,” the official continued.

“The relationship has nowhere to go but down, fast,” the offical predicted.

The short-list to replace Mattis reportedly included retired four-star General Jack Keane, who the White House senior official described as “like a more partisan Mattis.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (R-SC), former Treasury Department official David McCormick and former Republican Sen. Jim Talent of Missouri are also the short list.

Shortly after the report was published, President Donald Trump spoke with reporters for the second time on Wednesday to dispute the report saying Mattis will “stay right here” in the administration.

Trump's total haul for August, when he got a week's worth of free media from the Republican convention, was just $61.7 million. The campaign spent almost all of it, $61.2 million.

The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.

‘Fraud’ Lindsey Graham blasted after claim Dems are the hypocrites on the courts — not him: ‘Everything you say is a lie’

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was blasted after claiming that Democrats were the real hypocrites for "starting" the battle for the courts buy eliminating the filibuster on judges after Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) held up dozens of judicial appointments. It was the worst ever seen in 60 years.

"Being lectured by Democrats about how to handle judicial nominations is like an arsonist advising the Fire Department," Graham tweeted Sunday. "Democrats chose to set in motion rules changes to stack the court at the Circuit level and they chose to try to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s life to keep the Supreme Court seat open. You reap what you sow."
