‘Your favorite president’ Trump taunts Jim Mattis in embittered Twitter rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump taunted his outgoing Defense Secretary on Twitter Saturday night, saying that he had given him “a second chance” after he was “ingloriously fired” by his predecessor, Barack Obama.

“When President Obama ingloriously fired Jim Mattis, I gave him a second chance,” Trump tweeted. “Some thought I shouldn’t, I thought I should. Interesting relationship-but I also gave all of the resources that he never really had. Allies are very important-but not when they take advantage of U.S.”

Obama had fired Mattis without a phone call, it was reported at the time.

Trump also seemed to bitterly comment upon his own reputation, calling himself “your favorite President” and saying that he would be a hero for ending the war in Syria were it not for his historic unpopularity.

“If anybody but your favorite President, Donald J. Trump, announced that, after decimating ISIS in Syria, we were going to bring our troops back home (happy & healthy), that person would be the most popular hero in America.

Tribe said, "what it looks like is that the majority leader is going to conduct this trial as though he's a member of the defense team," Tribe said. "You know, it's an ancient principle, centuries-old -- actually over a millennium old -- that you can't be a judge on your own case and effectively, to allow Donald Trump to call the shots, violates that principle."

Published

A Washington Post editorial is singing the praises of the Judiciary Committee's memo about the impeachment charges President Donald Trump is facing.
