General Mattis To Border Troops: Don't Go Nuts Listening To Media Coverage


Defense Secretary James Mattis recommends U.S. troops at the border focus on their job to support the Border Patrol.  Yesterday, General Mattis traveled to visit several thousand troops deployed at Camp Base Donna in the Rio Grande Valley.  Mattis advised a group of soldiers to concentrate on what their superiors say instead of paying attention to the media's focus on the mission's controversy.  The Texas Tribune quotes Mattis saying, "if you read all that stuff, you know, you'll go nuts."
