At home alone in The white house

In only some days, it is clear that the last two that were considered the "adults" in Donald Trump's administration, ending of the year. Secretary of defense Jim Mattis announced the departure in February of next year is dramatic for two reasons. For it first then they disappear one after all stabilizing, and not kunnskapsløs man from a chaotic White house. The other is Mattis the man who more than any other has tried to keep Donald Trump in the ears, in his voyages there in the world. With him out of maktas corridors have America's traditional allies, lost its main channel to the Trumps ear. It means that even more of the tensions in international politics can be put in the game.

Secretary of defense Jim Mattis avskjedsbrev is clarifying reading. In the letter, he writes that it is important to show his allies respect, something Trump is well known that the explicit has not made, and that the united STATES must be "unequivocally" in relation to Russia and China. There has, as is well known Trump been explicitly ambiguous, to Mattis obviously a major concern. Because of this draws Mattis this conclusion in his letter to Trump:

- Because you have the right to have a defence minister who has a view that is more in tune with your on these and other areas, I believe it is proper for me to pull me from my position.

so deep political differences over foreign and sikkerhetspolitikkens direction, which makes that Mattis retires. And when Mattis writes about "the right to have a defence minister who has a view that is more in tune with your", so it is enough to take off, and it is not difficult to read into this a criticism of the Mattis perceive as the president's inkonsistens. That Mattis dismissal comes just a day after Trump's announcement of the dramatic decision to pull all american forces out of Syria, is just one of the disagreements. Worth noting is that Mattis does not have one good word to say about the president he has served as secretary for two years.

to take it in chronological order: Mattis was the opponent that Trumps the desire to reintroduce torture as a tool in the investigation of the terror. He was critical of atomavtalen with Iran, but would not break it, as Trump has done. He was strongly critical of the sabelraslingen with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, before the summit between Trump and Kim in the summer. And he was critical to pull us forces out of Syria and Afghanistan.

But the Mattis main criticism of Trump apply enough of the president's treatment of America's close allies. When Trump before his first Nato summit in the summer of 2017 called the alliance for "out of date", and then he, after the year operated as a gangster who demanded beskyttelsespenger of its allies, it must have twisted in my stomach at Mattis. His ties to the alliance and the allies have been strong throughout his military career. A boss in the role of a blatant rabble, was after all to judge a lot to have to swallow for Mattis.

Mattis leaves Trump administration at about the same time with chief of staff John Kelly. The two are the last two "adults" who have been able to keep a president almost without the degree of im pulse control a bit in the ears. It means that skrekkscenarioet from when Trump was chosen, is about to become a reality. Trump surrounds himself only with yes-men and some women. But there is hardly anyone in Trump's management can offer him resistance.

It happens while Trump is becoming increasingly warmer in jersey and sure in his role as president. The first months in The white house, he had difficulties to find out of the role. But the spotlight he is in the constant - not the least because of all the scandals that surround him at any given time - seems to do that he enjoys. With the Trump home alone in The white house, we even more unpredictable and dangerous times in the face.

Jim Mattis retires
