HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam (AP) — Defense Secretary Jim Mattis says President Donald Trump has assured him he is “100 percent” safe in his job.

Mattis told reporters traveling with him to Vietnam that during an in-flight phone call, Trump said, “I am 100 percent with you.”

He said Trump mentioned his interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” in which he said that Mattis “may leave” his administration and that he thinks the retired Marine Corps general is “sort of a Democrat.”
