Pence: Mattis Will Bring His ‘Extraordinary Experience’ to Counsel the President

‘He will bring that extraordinary experience in combat’

PENCE: "I think to be around the President-elect is to be around someone who pulls together everyone around him. He gains the broadest range of counsel from people and then he makes decisions, and I am very confident that general Mattis, who will be formerly announced today, that the President-elect announced very memorably Thursday night in Cincinnati, he will be joining the President-elect tonight in North Carolina. He's going to be at the table. He's going to bring that extraordinary experience in combat, and really as a thought leader in matters of national security and defense to counsel the president going forward."
