US President Donald Trump has announced Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis will retire at the end of February, confirming longstanding suspicions that the former general was on his way out of the administration.
Trump has not yet named a replacement, but says he will do so “shortly.” Mattis’ next move is not yet known. As recently as September, he dismissed talk of his departure as “rumor" and said he had no plans to retire.

General Mattis was a great help to me in getting allies and other countries to pay their share of military obligations. A new Secretary of Defense will be named shortly. I greatly thank Jim for his service!
