The former u.s. secretary of defense James Mattis accusing president Donald Trump to attempt to divide the american people.
It appears by a statement by Mattis, which The Atlantic brings on its website.
– Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime, which isn't trying to unite the american people. He pretends not to try it. Instead, he tries to divide us, he says.
Mattis give expression to Trumps way to lead the UNITED states on the cause of the unrest and protests that have marked the country for more than a week after an unarmed black man died during an arrest in Minnesota last Monday.
- We are now witnessing the consequences of three years of intentional attempts at this, says Mattis and adds:
- Three years without mature leadership.
However, the statements do not fall in the good soil of the american president. On Twitter send Trump a rant against his former defence minister.
'Maybe the only thing that Barack Obama and I have in common is that we both had the honor of guys Jim Mattis, the world's most overrated general. I asked to resign and was fine with it. His nickname was 'Chaos', which I didn't like, so I changed it to 'Mad Dog," writes Trump.

James Mattis, who achieved the rank of general in the UNITED states marine corps, was Trumps first secretary of defense from 20. January 2017 to the end of 2018.
Mattis has previously said that it would be inappropriate for him to criticize a sitting president.
he does so now, and in addition to langer, he looked after the us military and Trumps current defence minister, Mark Esper.
Esper and a general from the UNITED states forsvarskommando used Monday a military term - the battleground - of the places in the u.s. cities where protesters gathered.
- We should reject any idea of our cities as a 'battleground', writes Mattis.
Donald Trump threatened on Monday to deploy troops in the worst hit areas, but on Wednesday he says that it is probably not necessary.
the Demonstrations as a result of the police's heavy-handed treatment of the black american George Floyd is essentially the process peaceful, but in some places they have grown violent, and the shops have been smashed and looted.
James Mattis wrote that the protesters ' cries for 'equality before the law' is a 'justified and unifying requirements - as we all should be able to endorse'.
