US defence chief Mattis quits after clashing with Trump on policies

Updated : December 21, 2018 07:37 AM IST

Mattis announced plans to resign in a candid resignation letter to Trump that laid bare the growing divide between them, and implicitly criticized Trump's disregard for America's closest allies. He released the letter after a face-to-face meeting with Trump in which the two men also aired their differences, a senior White House official said.
"Because you have a right to a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects, I believe it is right for me to step down from my position," Mattis said in the letter.
