On Friday, CNN’s Jim Acosta revealed that President Donald Trump was enraged by the language in Defense Secretary James Mattis’ resignations letter.
Mattis submitted his letter of resignation to the president after he made a hasty decision to withdraw troops from Syria.
“I understand, that you have some new details about the president’s reaction to the stunning resignation yesterday from the defense secretary, James Mattis,” host Wolf Blitzer said.
“I’m told by a source close to the White House that [Trump] hates that letter from the defense secretary, James Mattis,” Acosta said.
He added that Trump hates the media coverage “even more.” Acosta said that Mattis and other people like White House Chief of Staff John Kelly were often perceived as the adults in the room.
“They were the adults in the room along with Jim Mattis to keep the president from going overboard, and so the president once again irritated by this notion here in Washington that he is sometimes is in need of adult day care,” he said.

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’
Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.
Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.
"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."

We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAIGHT...and nothing happens to them. This crime was taking place even before my election, everyone knows it, and yet all are frozen stiff with fear....
