Late Thursday night local time, trump launched a counterattack. John Kelly didnt know I was going to fire James Mattis, and he didnt know I was going to ask for a resignation, he tweeted. Why should I tell him that he (Kelly) is not in my core circle, completely exhausted by the job, and all of them leave silently and finally become anonymous.

Trump announced on December 20, 2018 that Matisse, then defense chief, will retire at the end of February 2019. Matisse later announced that he had decided to resign because of his disagreement with trump. About two weeks before announcing Matisses retirement, trump announced on December 8 that Kelly, then the White House chief of staff, would step down at the end of 2018. Kelly, who was born in the army, was highly praised by trump, but he left the field in a gloomy way. The reason is that Kelly and trump are not in the same picture, and they are not compatible with the political circle in Washington.

Perhaps the only thing Barack Obama and I have in common is that we were lucky enough to fire Jim Mattis, the most overrated general in the world, he tweeted. I asked him for a letter of resignation and it was great. His nickname is chaos. I dont like it. I changed it to mad dog.
