Trump Announces Mattis As Secretary Of Defense: Closest Thing We Have To George Patton


At a Cincinnati post-election rally, dubbed the 'Thank You Tour 2016,' President-elect Donald Trump announces Ret. General James Mattis as his pick for secretary of defense.

DONALD TRUMP: We are going to appoint 'Mad Dog' Mattis as our Secretary of Defense. But we're not announcing it until Monday so don't tell anybody! Mad Dog! He's great. He is great...

They love him. So we're going to be announcing him on Monday of next week. Keep it inside the room. That's what we have. And he's our best. They say that he is the closest thing to General George Patton that we have and it's about time. It's about time.
