US Defense Secretary James Mattis is concerned that President Donald Trump may ignite a “cataclysmic war” against another country due to his inability to comprehend geopolitics, says an American pundit.

“What Mattis’s concern is not the political interference of war making, but that it is ordered by a child-president and he would have to either obey or refuse direct orders, something he isn’t trained to d,” said Myles Hoenig, who ran for the US Congress in 2016 as a Green Party candidate.

“It would a lot more comfortable for him to be on the outside earning big bucks for the weapons contractors than serving as a civil servant engaged in a losing endeavor such as the next cataclysmic war,” Hoenig said Wednesday in a phone interview with Press TV.

“Democrats and other critics of the president fear Trump’s impetuousness and inability to comprehend geo-politics, but not enough so that they approved Mattis’s and Trump’s military budget of nearly $800 billion, $80 billion more than they even asked for,” he added.
