The resignation of James Matisse: Another wise man leaves the compound Donald Trump
Withdrawal from Syria The defense minister is on the long list of departures, and Matisse’s policy is against Trump’s security concerns.
Although the resignation of Defense Minister James Matisse was expected, the news of the announcement was a shock, coming only hours after Trump announced the withdrawal of his troops from Syrian territory. Observers commented that Matisse is the latest in the US administration to curb Trump’s vagueness in his unclear foreign policy, which is sometimes the product of Trump’s business-to-business mood, which has no experience in politics and its complexity and sought leadership. The United States, and with it, the world, according to the logic of business and deals.
Washington – The departure of US Defense Secretary James Matisse to President Donald Trump was no surprise, as was the case with the president’s adviser and campaign manager Steve Bannon, Foreign Secretary Rex Tilerson, the United States permanent representative at the United Nations, Nicky Hayley, and many others. His administration, from the chief of staff to national security adviser Michael Flynn.
After the announcement of the resignation of Hayley was expected to be Matisse, the last wise to leave the Trump, but what was not expected is the reason for the veteran defense minister to that, the American withdrawal from Syria, where many political sources reveal that Trump did not consult the nearest His aides and his aides in the White House before proceeding with the decision to withdraw decisively.
Before Trump’s recent move, which was based on the fact that the mission of US forces in Syria ended with a defeat against the organization of the Islamic state, James Matisse announced in recent months that the task of eliminating a Da’ash was not over yet, warning a week before his resignation that the elimination of jihadists The differences and rifts between Trump and Matisse, revealed in the text of his resignation by asserting that his resignation stemmed from the growing rift with Trump, criticizing the president’s indifference to the closest US allies, in remarks similar to those of days ago On the N Former Foreign Minister Rex Tillerson, who described in an interview CBS Trump Network as “undisciplined, does not like to read, does not read media reports, and does not like to engage in a lot of issues details.”
Matisse is the last official in Trump’s administration to be trusted by politicians and world powers because they believe that the balanced man who leads the US defense is ultimately a bulwark against the whims of a president who is addicted to chaos internally and externally.
Many US political critics stress that the outgoing secretary of defense was unanimously endorsed by both Democrats and Republicans because he was the only guarantor to curb some of Trump’s military operations, usually the product of his temperamental moods. , Matisse opposed withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, the transfer of the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, the creation of a space force and the start of a trade war with US allies, but failed to convince Trump of his views.
Trump Matisse was kept out of the circle of other major military announcements, including stopping military exercises with South Korea and preventing transgenders from joining the army. This was announced by the US president while Mattis was on holiday, according to Fox magazine. The outgoing Secretary of Defense achieved some successes, making Trump stick to a diplomatic approach with North Korea rather than a military approach.
The wave of resignations that have hit the US administration in less than two years has shown that all the wise people who have come close to Trump still cling to classic US policies decades ago, in contrast to Trump’s ambition not only to bring about internal political change but also to change the entire world order. In this logic, many critics of President Bush’s policies argue that Trump does not gamble in taking his steps on his team of advisers and advisers, as much as consulting a secret advisory body that looks at him and his domestic and foreign policies.
Without a doubt, Matisse’s resignation, which some see as a rebuke or slap to Trump, will leave many of the crises among the US allies who have been confused by Trump’s approach. The move also raises questions about the extent to which Matisse’s successor has complied with international treaties, including those relating to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
The writers of Fox, Alex Ward and Jane Kearney, confirm that Matisse’s departure will further disrupt Trump’s management. National security adviser John Bolton and Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo are likely to face less resistance, offering tougher advice on North Korea and Iran
