    Everyone tries to influence the elections. Hillary certainly had many countries attempting to do just that with unbelievable amounts of donations being thrown at her foundation! Also the Republicans who were unsupportive of Trump tried to influence the outcome. Was so happy the people who voted for Trump were heard by the Electoral reps. Thank God someone listened to who is important!!!

    I didn’t support Trump, but I hated Lyin’ Ted a lot. I’m glad he doesn’t like Ted.

    President-elect became a successful businessman surrounding himself with proven leaders. Gen Mattis’s military record speaks for itself. He did not make
    four star being a dud. Gen Mattis once again will lead with distinction and honor.

    As a former active duty Marine, I have full confidence in General “Mad Dog” Mattis being our new Secretary of Defence! He will bee as near perfect as anyone could possibly be for this very important task! Period.

    If President-elect chose him to fill that position, who are we to question…. since we do no personally or professionally know him. We didn’t interview him and investigate his beliefs. Trump, I’m sure has done his homework, as far as checking out his qualifications.

    Dan Martinez for Secretary of Veterans Affairs will not question Donald Trump’s pick, Mad Dog Mattis’s appointment for Secretary of Defense. Dan has supported Donald Trump since the inception of Trump’s candidacy when the establishment thought he was not a serious candidate. Trump proved the GOP establishment wrong, “Big Time”. Dan Martinez will continue to stand behind Trump’s decision. Dan is the CEO of ICC Third Party Administrators.

    Also, Mattis was in the Marine Corps, which is actually part of the Navy. Yes, he commanded a joint command but he’s VERY LIKELY to be biased toward the Marine Corps, which actually plays a much smaller role in defense than the other services.

    The answer is a resounding NO! Generals command armies, the role of the Secretary of Defense is to advise the president on matters pertaining to the military such as personnel policy, pay, unit size, procurement, etc. The Secretary of Defense has three undersecretaries who work with the Chiefs of Staff. Mattis has no government experience except in the military. Trump should have never considered him.

    General James Mattis is the “Perfect Choice”

    He knows how to end the treasonous actions by Obama and his willing executioners.
