President-elect Donald Trump has chosen legendary Marine Gen. James ‘MAD DOG’ Mattis for Secretary of Defense. Today he formally introduced his pick to lead the defense department as he brought his “thank you” tour to Fayetteville, North Carolina.
“In order to succeed in our defense policy, we must have the right person to lead in our Defense Department,” he said, reading from a Teleprompter. “This is why I am proud to formally announce today my intention to nominate General James “Mad Dog” Mattis as the next Secretary of Defense for the United States of America.”
