James Mattis resigned as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense.
His official decision stunned Washington, D.C.
But his final words as Secretary will leave you speechless.
Donald Trump announced Mattis would leave his post as Secretary of Defense on January 1, 2019.
On New Year’s Eve, Mattis released a letter containing his final words to the troops.
He expressed his gratitude for being able to lead the Department of Defense and asked every Pentagon employee as well as every active duty soldier to “keep the faith” in America’s mission.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis bid farewell to the armed forces and other defense employees on his last day on the job, urging them to “keep the faith” and stand by U.S. allies.
In a farewell message, the retired Marine general told Defense Department employees that serving as defense secretary “has been my high honor.”
“Our Department’s leadership, civilian and military, remains in the best possible hands,” Mattis said. “I am confident that each of you remains undistracted from our sworn mission to support and defend the Constitution while protecting our way of life.”
“So keep the faith in our country and hold fast, alongside our allies, aligned against our foes,” Mattis added.
The fake news media took Mattis’ resignation as a sign that Trump’s Presidency was unraveling.
In fact, the opposite is true.
Mattis opposed Trump’s foreign poliy in key areas.
Now the President has a chance to staff his administration with a Secretary of Defense that supports his agenda.
