In the impromptu speech to U. S. Forces deployed in Jordan, which was surreptitiously recorded on cellphone video, Mattis talked about political divisiveness in the wake of the racially inspired violence in Charlottesville, Va. Our country, right now, it s got problems that we don t have in the military, Mattis said.
