Trump Predictably Attacks “Overrated” James Mattis

Axios reports:

President Trump unloaded on his former defense secretary via Twitter on Wednesday, hours after James Mattis condemned him for making a “mockery of our Constitution” in his response to mass protests in the wake of George Floyd’s killing.

Reality check: Trump did not create the “Mad Dog” nickname during his administration as he claimed. News reports as far back as 2004 have used the informal title. Mattis resigned in 2018 after clashing with Trump on the administration’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria.

Obama didn’t fire Mattis either.
