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.

Devastating new ad uses Ronald Reagan’s words against Trump to stunning effect
The Lincoln Project is not the only right-wing group that has been creating attack ads slamming President Donald Trump. Another is Republican Voters Against Trump, which uses the words of President Ronald Reagan in its latest video to illustrate Trump’s failures as president.
In the ad — which lasts one minute and 40 seconds — RVAT contrast Reagan’s words with images of the U.S. during the Trump era. The message is not subtle: Under Trump, the United States is a long way from Reagan’s vision for the country.
The ad isn’t aimed at liberals and progressives, many of whom would argue that Reagan’s economic policies were bad for the American working class during the 1980s. It asks Republicans: “Has your party left you?”
The sheep-like loyalty of Trump supporters is starting to backfire
Donald Trump thinks his voters are morons. This universal truth was once again demonstrated this week by a Facebook ad working Trump’s new statue-oriented campaign strategy. The ad declared, “WE WILL PROTECT THIS” and featured a photo of … no, not some racist-loser Confederate general astride a horse but “Cristo Redentor,” the famous statue of Jesus Christ that sits atop Mount Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro, which, for those keeping track, is not in the United States but in Brazil, a sovereign nation in a different continent.
Trump is living in a ‘COVIDless la-la land’ — and can’t understand why he isn’t being taken seriously: CNN’s Cuomo
On Wednesday's edition of CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time," Chris Cuomo slammed President Donald Trump for demanding people take him seriously as he ignores his own health experts and tries to override recommendations on school closures.
"Another day gone without the president deciding to lead us with a plan of action to fight the pandemic," said Cuomo. "Instead, we now know what he meant by pressuring states to reopen schools, ready or not, without ever offering them a plan to help. If they don't reopen, he will punish the poorest students. He said he's going to pull federal aid, and the kids that get most of that aid are the neediest. Many of them are white, by the way, and from families that may be Trumpers."
