Mattis To Bolton: 'I Heard That You're Actually The Devil Incarnate'

Mattis To Bolton: 'I Heard That You're Actually The Devil Incarnate'”

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis was caught making a amusing remark to newly appointed national security advisor John Bolton while meeting him for the first time on Thursday. Thanks for coming and it's good to finally meet you.

The Defense Department confirmed Thursday the Trump White House and Defense Secretary James Mattis have begun initial talks over whether to funnel billions from the Pentagon's coffers into the administration's border wall program. "I heard that you're actually the devil incarnate and I wanted to meet you", the secretary can be heard saying in an off-mic moment while greeting the former Ambassador to the United Nations.

Mattis responded to reports earlier this week that he would have difficulty working with Bolton due to their differing world views. "I can work with an American", Mattis told reporters last week. "I was good at building", President Trump said. Bolton, a former USA ambassador to the United Nations under President George W. Bush and, more recently, a regular contributor to Fox News, is known for his intensely hawkish views, especially on key global issues related to Iran and North Korea. "I'm not the least bit concerned with that sort of thing".

The two are also at odds over the nuclear deal with Iran - Bolton has called for the U.S.to walk away from the agreement. Many speculated that Bolton's hawkish views on North Korea - he's previously argued for a first strike against the "imminent" threat from the rogue regime - would be a point of contention between him and Mattis, who has ruled out a pre-emptive attack against North Korea.
