James Mattis is about to do the one thing Donald Trump never saw coming

James Mattis’ resignation as Secretary of Defense last December took Washington by surprise.

Immediately, speculation began to swirl that Mattis would take some sort of action to challenge Trump in the 2020 Republican primary.

And now, James Mattis is about to do the one thing Donald Trump never saw coming.

General Mattis is releasing a book this summer centered on his time commanding U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and the leadership lessons he learned.

But much to the chagrin of the fake news media, Mattis will not discuss President Trump in the book.

Mattis said it would go against his honor to write a tell-all about a sitting President.

The Daily Caller reports:

“My purpose in writing this book is to convey some of the lessons I learned in 43 years of service for those who might benefit, whether in the military or in civilian life,” Mattis said in a statement, according to AP.

Mattis went on to explain why his book is not intended to be about Trump.

“I’m old-fashioned: I don’t write about sitting presidents, so those looking for a tell-all will be disappointed. I want to pass on the lessons and experiences that prepared me for challenges I could not anticipate, not take up the hot political rhetoric of our day,” Mattis continued.

Mattis resigned as defense secretary in Dec. 2018, allegedly after a series of foreign policy disagreements with the president.

Mattis’ refusal to go against code and trash President Trump should put an end to any speculation that he would mount a 2020 primary challenge.

And it will surely disappoint members of the fake news media hoping that Mattis would use the book tour as a vehicle to bash Trump for policies that Mattis strongly disagreed with.

Mattis has a decorated war record that gives him credibility with both Democrats and Republicans.

That’s why never-Trump Republicans and fake news journalists were so keen to play up Mattis disagreeing with Trump.

They figured that if Mattis directly confronted the President on an issue, Trump’s approval numbers would plummet as the American people would side with the decorated General.

But Mattis has no interest in playing a role in the Left’s takedown of the President.

    General Mattis wrote a book about the wars In Afghanistan and Iraq. Those wars began in the Bush and continued in the OBama Administration known as the Arab Spring to overturn moderate government regimes in the Middle East.

  2. Charles Rezner, Ph.D. says:

    Mattis unlike most of those who make it to important government jobs is an honorable man. In Vegas they say what happens here stays here. Mattis applies that to a Cabinet appointment. What goes on in the Administration stays in the Administration. We need more people in government like Trump and Mattis who can look at the mirror in the morning and like the man they see.

      U R absolutely correct. The democrats know nothing about Honor. They have become mentally unhinged due to Trump winning. I pray that Trump wins another 4 years. Our country is headed for trouble if and when a Democrat wins. He/She will undo everything President Trump has fought so hard for,unless we, as Republicans stand up and turn away from the demonic Democrats.

    It must be brutal to write about America’s Hitler. Ivana Trump in an interview stated that Trump kept Hitler’s speeches next to the bed. This might be the only significant reading Donald J. Trump ever did. Woe is the country having a wannabe dictator who helped fake news with his sick birtherism lies.

      Moses why don’t you change your name to Lucifer as it is a more fitting name for you as Moses if he were alive today would have been insulted by using his name.

      WW1, WW11, Brother end of WW11, he cleaned up after Hitler. Grandson retired from Coast Guard and other one Navy. Best friend killed in Korea. Husband WW11, DAV. History is a very important part of my life and love it.
      If you know anything about WW11 you would realize Obama’s agenda was like Hitler’s. God Bless Our Country. We need the wall. The liberals know we are being invaded. Their votes for 2020. Obama’s shadow government is still working against our constitution and immigration laws.

      You better be damn glad President Trunk isn’t like Hitler cause if he was your can might not be here on this earth.

    • Henry Naizer says:

      Moses, Moses you attack our President with slanderous and UNSUPPORTABLE statements about the President. I challenge YOU to cite ONE UNCONSTITUTIONAL action the President has done. Per the U.S. Constitution Art II, Sec 1 2nd para he was elected by the ELECTORS as our President. We Conservatives didn’t complain when Truman, Kennedy, Carter, Clinton and Obama were elected to the presidency by the Electors – so quit your BITCHING. By the way, I’ve read Karl Marx’s Communist Manifest and I’ve lived during Stalin’s era of his scourge of Russia and the homeland of my grandparents and great grand parents.

  6. Ted Quirk says:

    Many military commanders have become president. They all however had one thing in common – They WON the wars they were involved in. The pas President to do this was Ike and so far no other commander has become president and this will likely remain the case.

  8. Scott27 says:

    Mattis is displaying an abundance of class; something so lacking in this administration and this group on this site. You could all learn a lesson, here.

    • The Real M says:

      Scott27, Why are you here? You must be a sadomasochist and enjoy the abuse you so abundantly receive and deserve! You are a liberal snowflake creep and nobody, I repeat nobody, gives a rat’s behind what you say or think so, get lost you goober! You are a pathetic joke your mom played on your dad!

      • Gregory Sullivan says:

        The Real M:
        Don’t answer any tweets to those sub-humans like “Scot 27” “Betty””DIANE”and the rest of those demented brainless assholes that come to this site. They. are probably funded by George Soros and the. Democrook party to harass us because we support Donald Trump.

      • Jo Deplor says:

        AND, THE BEST PART OF Scott27, RAN DOWN HIS FATHERS LEG!

      • Joe the Plumber says:

        The Real M is a real stupid freak

    • gordon hoyt says:

      Scott, I agree with you that General Mattis is an honorable man. But I must say that the rest of your post makes it abundantly clear that you are a small child panty sniffer.

  9. Gregory Sullivan says:

    It’s best not reply to brainless assholes like “Eric” He probably flunked kindergarten if not nursery school and was born from a dead sperm cell.

  10. Mattis has a book worth reading. Comey and others have nothing to read but total anti-American Garbage. Mattis is a REAL hero and Public Servant! Many recent “authors” are just out to push their own agenda, and disloyalty to our country! Mattis sets the gold standard for a writer. This book is worth reading! But look at the best seller lists….leading the lists are often those attacking the USA! Unfortunately the mass media is out to start a US Civil War! And the DNC is calling their campaign center the War Room! They need to read his book! Who reads our mass media the most closely? Terrorists! The 9-11 attacks were partly shaped by those studied American News About the fertilizer bomb attacks on the World Trade Center! Mattis is great. I look forward to reading what he has to Say!

    General Mattis is a true soldier who doesn’t believe in ridiculing a sitting President, that is part of his oath. The lefties are trying anything to get Trump because they are nothing more than haters. Just look at the View Whoppi and Behar were muted because of bad language, once a bum always a bum.

    • OldConservativeGuy says:

      Mattis is a class act and lives the values we all believed when we served and carried out with us. Well done, General!

    HEY LYDIA, IT IS BETTER TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT AND ALLOW PEOPLE TO THINK YOU ARE A MORON, THAN IT IS TO OPEN IT AND REMOVE ALL DOUBT!

  15. MAGA says:

    General Mattis clearly understands how dangerous the democrats are would not dare give them any amo to disparage President Trump. I also think he is an honorable man as was his behavior in the Trump Administration.

      Lydia L. Pineault, Please quickly find an adult who can explain or show you how to “unsubscribe” from this site before all “these” true American patriots corrupt your little liberal pea brain! These people, “we” are sick and tired of the America destroying Democrats running down our Country, our President and our conservative values so, we come on here to vent and express our views and feelings. You are obviously on the wrong site so you should leave, very hurriedly, and find you way to a liberal “trashy rag of a magazine just like the Inquirer garbage”! That is certainly where you belong!
