President Trump announces possible resignation of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis

U.S President Donald Trump has said his Defense Secretary Jim Mattis could be resigning from office soon.

Speaking during an interview, Trump said despite his relation with Mattis, the defence secretary remains a democrat, hence the possibility of his resignation.

Reports say Mattis, seen as one of the steadiest but also more independent members of Trump’s cabinet, has served as a low-profile counterweight to the president in his often abrasive treatment of U.S allies.

Officials say the plane was trying to gain height after a failed landing, but crashed through an airport fence onto the road.
