WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, whose book is released Sept. 3, warns bitter political divisions have pushed American society to the “breaking point” in his most extensive public remarks since he resigned in protest from the Trump administration.

Mattis also goes into some reasons he left the Trump administration in an excerpt from his book published today by The Wall Street Journal.

The retired Marine general writes he quit in 2018 when he realized his advice to President Trump “no longer resonated” particularly with regard to “keeping faith” with allies.
