Defense Secretary James Mattis will get an earful from his boss this morning, after an ‘authorized user’ of the Pentagon Twitter account retweeted – and then swiftly deleted – a tweet calling for President Donald Trump to resign after the president slammed Sen. Al Franken while remaining silent about Alabama Sen. Candidate Roy Moore.
Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning said in a statement that an authorized operator of the Defense Department’s official Twitter site ‘erroneously retweeted content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense. The operator caught this error and immediately deleted it.’
Chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White posted the same statement on Twitter.
