Donald Trump’s administration is turning out to be one of the most divisive in recent history. While there have always been segments of the population that did not like a particular president, Trump has taken that to a whole new level. His policies have spurred protests in the streets, condemnation from political leaders of both parties, and encouraged white supremacists to brazenly march under swastikas.
This division is an issue that Defense Sectary Jim Mattis addressed during a short talk he gave to U.S. troops stationed abroad. In the video, the location of which is not known, Mattis is seen calling on the armed forces to “hold the line.”
‘Our country right now, it’s got problems we don’t have in the military. You just hold the line until our country gets back to understanding and respecting each other and showing it.’
Mattis also talked about America’s twin powers of intimidation and inspiration. He said that the military represented the nation’s power of intimidation and that the country would get the power of inspiration back. Though one has to wonder, who is responsible for the country’s loss of inspiration? Mattis, of course, did not blame Trump, but it is worth noting that the nation’s reputation has seemed to have taken a hit over the past seven months
‘We’ve got the power of intimidation, and that’s you, if someone wants to screw with our families, our country and our allies. The power of inspiration – [and] we’ll get the power of inspiration back.’
