"60 Minutes's" Lesley Stahl interviewed Trump, marking an undeniable get; he'd been scarce on mainstream media since around the time he appeared on tape with NBC's Lester Holt and indicated he'd fired former FBI Director James Comey in part due to the Russian Federation investigation.
Although she says Trump did not fully cooperate with her, Stahl gave the president props for his recent "string of wins".
Characterizing the Pentagon chief as a "good guy", and reiterating that they "get along very well", Trump repeated: "He may leave". That the President's vanishingly rare appearance on a nonpartisan news program had resulted in a spectacle in which randomly assorted questions were bulldozed by a man eager to speak, and in which the interviewer generally left the viewers to decide what those answers meant without the benefit of meaningful follow-up, made the point clear. "People leave. That's Washington".

He is also seen as less hawkish on Iran than Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and White House National Security Adviser John Bolton.
In an informal session with defense reporters, Mattis repeated the Pentagon's stance that US withdrawals would exclusively be based on the defeat of ISIS, but insisted that there was "no daylight" between him and Bolton.
