Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, a former viersterrengeneraal with more than four decades of experience in military matters and foreign crises, leaves the ship. In February he retired, very much dissatisfied with the isolationist course that the USA is sailing under Donald Trump.

Who decided earlier this week not only abruptly that he the some 2,000 American troops out of Syria would withdraw, against the advice of his advisers in the Pentagon and Foreign Affairs. But after Mattis’ resignation would Trump also plan for 7,000 American soldiers to return from Afghanistan. America’s traditional allies worldwide to respond concerned.

From the White House are already a long line of employees fired or left, but the parting of Jim Mattis is harder than many other. With his extensive foreign military experience, he was regarded as the ‘adult in the room’, and as one of the few topadviseurs that the sometimes irrational decisions that Trump would take the supply could adjust.

Explanation with maps and tables

Insiders told The Washington Post that Mattis, the president, with maps and tables tried to explain how Trumps decisions America’s interests could harm. Because he knew that the president there is sensitive, punctual Mattis thereby controlled trade and foreign aid. But the last time went on, the disagreements, not only over Syria, but also, for example, about the sending of American soldiers to the Mexican border.

President Trump will feel more and more pressured. Hawks criticize the withdrawal from Syria, while the conservatives have him put away as a toothless president and openly wondering whether his limes wall between the U.S. and Mexico ever. The wall was an important campagnebelofte of Trump, and he thinks that his re-election in 2020 depends on them. The conservative press is pushing Trump even more so in a bunkermodus.

Closure of the government is coming

Therefore, the Us president is now a forcing on that limes wall. He refuses a agreement of the Congress to accept that a temporary closure of the U.s. government is avoided, if the parliament does not agree with a spacious funding of the wall. The Republican Senaatsvoorzitter Mitch McConnell tries to Trump to convince him that the money for that wall in 2019 may be sought, and that he is a “shutdown” for Christmas, best to avoid.

Listen Trump to the radical voices in his fan base, he keeps a foot in the piece and have the government on Saturday partially close. Therein lies a whole new danger for the businessman-president. To do this, turned the U.s. economy as a tierelier. But through the turmoil about the impending ‘shutdown’ dropped the Dow Jones Thursday to its lowest point this year.
