Trump MattisPresident-elect Donald Trump called James Mattis “the real deal” on Saturday following his meeting with the retired Marine Corps general who is reportedly in the running as a potential pick for Defense secretary.

The two emerged from Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, N.J., on Saturday afternoon as Trump held a series of meetings with advisers and potential cabinet picks, including 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Asked how the meeting went, Trump responded, “All I can say is he is the real deal.”

“We’re gonna see,” Trump responded when asked if Mattis had a place in his administration.

    BET TRUMP PICKS THE BEST.

    FROM A KOREAN WAR VET, 1951/53, A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, BUT MOST OF ALL A CHRISTIAN. I VOTED FOR TRUMP.

    DON’T JUST LIKE SENT THIS TO ALL YOU KNOW AND TO ALL YOUR MEMBERS.

    LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BANNING ALL MUSLIMS FROM THIS COUNTRY. PERHAPS IT SHOULD BE ENFORCED.

    PRAY FOR PRESIDENT ELECT TRUMP EVERY DAY. HE WILL NEED US TO OVERCOME THE EVEL OF THIS WORLD.

    WE NEED TO MAKE JESUS CHRIST FIRST FOR THIS COUNTRY AND DO NOT BELEIVE EVERYTHING YOUR HEAR FROM THE BIASED MEDIA. KNOW THE FACTS.

    NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL TAX EXAMPT ENTIES, SUCH AS THE MASONIC LODGE, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS AND ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TO COME OUT OF THE CLOSET, FIND OUT ABOUT PEOPLE RUNNING AND ADVISE THEIR PEOPLE THE TRUE STORY SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE FOR THE BEST.

    THIS IS WHAT 20 MILLION AMISH PEOPLE DID. 30 LEADERS MEET IN OHIO WITH 3 MILLION AND VOTED THAT ALL WOULD VOTE FOR TRUMP.

    THIS IS WHAT GAVE HIM OH, PA, MICH, FLA, HELPED IN IND AND NEARLY GAVE HIM VA.

    FOLKS IF YOU DO NOT THINK GOD WAS INVOLVED IN THIS ELECTION, I SUGGEST YOU THINK AGAIN.

    TRUMP HAS PROMISED THAT HE WILL REPEAL THE JOHNSON DEAL THAT WOULD TAKE AWAY YOUR TAX EXAMPTION IF YOU TALKED POLITICS.

    IF WE HAVE NOT BEEN SET UP AT A TRY OF A MUSLIM TAKE, WHY ARE THERE A MINIMUM OF 37 MUSLIMS CAMPS IN THE USA, (5 IN N. VA. CLOSE TO DC) AND A FEMA CAMP IN EVERY STATE, TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMO, TAKE OUR GUNS, BRING IN THOUSANDS OF YOU MUSLIMSE. GET READY FOLK. PUT PIG GREASE ON YOUR BULLETS.

    A LOT OF CHRISTIANS VOTED FOR THIS, GOOGLE, THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015 AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I MEAN.

    FEEL FREE TO FORWARD THIS.

    What would Mr. Trump expect of Gen. Mattis? He is a Marine and as is expected to he “Leads from Ahead” with strong consideration for the “people under his command! Oooooh Yaaaa!
