In Jim Mattis’s letter there was a reference to a lack of mature leadership. Well, it only took Trump a couple of hours to prove the point. He took to Twitter, as is his habit, to slam Mattis.
Trump makes three statements of fact in this tweet and all three of them are untrue. Mattis clearly resigned, Obama didn’t fire him and he had the “mad dog” moniker well before serving Trump. AP’s fact check has some details.
Never to admit an error, Trump doubled down, twice.
