Mattis pushes back on Trump's claim that he's "sort of a Democrat"

Mattis told reporters on Monday that Trump has assured him he is “100 percent” behind him, per CBS News. This came after Trump told 60 Minutes on Sunday that it “could be” that his secretary of defense will leave the administration because “I think he’s sort of a Democrat.”

In response, the retired four-star Marine Corps general told reporters that he has actually never registered for a political party, and his “portfolio is bipartisan.” He also said he and the president have “never talked” about the possibility of him leaving the administration.
