Defense Secretary James Mattis: ‘I Don’t Have Any Issues with the Press’

Not very many Trump administration officials have addressed the president’s remarks yet about the press being the “enemy,” but Defense Secretary James Mattis did receive a question about it today.

Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin asked Mattis if he agrees with President Trump‘s sentiments.

Mattis said, “I’ve had some rather contentious times with the press, but no, the press, as far as I’m concerned, are a constituency that we deal with, and I don’t have any issues with the press myself.”
