White House resignations
December 21, 2018 -- Jim Mattis, o secretário da Defesa dos EUA, é o quarto elemento do
gabinete do Presidente Trump a sair em menos de duas semanas e a 44ª saída significativa desde que Michael Flynn, conselheiro de segurança nacional, foi demitido 25 dias depois do Presidente Trump tomar posse.
Mattis, who espoused America’s traditional global alliances has generally been referred to as one of the three adults in the chaotic Trump administration, the others being White House chief of staff John Kelly and then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
Trump ousted Tillerson publicly on Twitter on March 13. While Kelly was hired to bring order to the Oval Office, the retired Marine ultimately found Trump was uncontrollable. Kelly resigned on December 8.
