Damn so now he is trying to find a good cabinet so he can be effective?!
What will this sneaky bastard do next?!
It's almost like it's a plan. Like he has mattis there to be good cop, so he can be bad cop. And the F-35 will still be bought but possibly at a better rate after he cuts through red tape and takes credit...
Mattis is his opposite. Mattis is calm, tempered, ruthless and chooses his words carefully. Trump is grandiose, fast and loose, and a dealer. So Ino other words trump is picking exactly the right man and not the yes men you warned us about. In fact mattis was fired by Obama for not being a yes man.
It's almost like trump recognizes strengths and weaknesses to an extremely shrewd degree
