The book claims that Mattis said that associates of the President that he has the understanding of a “fifth – or sixth-grader,” The Washington Post. After Syrian dictator Bashar al-started to Assad, said a chemical attack on Syrians in April 2017, Trump, required, Mattis start an attack.
“Let f ‘ s—ing kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s say kill the f—ing lot of them,” Trump allegedly. But Mattis reportedly said to an aide: “We’re not going to do. We are much more measured.”
In a statement released Tuesday, said Mattis, in part, that “the contemptuous words attributed to the President, to me in Woodward’s book were never spoken by me or in my presence.”
Separately in the book, Kelly is reported to have frequently lost his temper, and he referred to Trump as “an idiot.”
“It is useless to try to convince him of anything. He is out of joint. We are told in crazy town,” Kelly, according to Woodward. “I don’t know why all of us are here. This is the worst job I ever had.”
But Kelly came out well to claim against the book, that the comments attributed to him were “not true.”
“The idea that I’ve ever called the President an idiot is not true,” he said in a statement. “As I said, that already in may, and is still firmly behind the stand:” I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly strong and open relationship. He always knows where I am, and he and I both know, this story is total BS. I am obliged to the President, his agenda, and our country. This is another pathetic attempt to smear people in the vicinity, and President of the Trump and distract from the management of too many successes.'”
