    President-elect Donald Trump shakes hands with retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis as he leaves Trump National Golf Club Bedminster clubhouse in Bedminster, N.J., Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016.

    President-elect Donald Trump tweeted about his meeting on Saturday with retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, calling the general "impressive." 

    Trump referred to the general by his nickname, "Mad Dog Mattis," and said the four-star was being considered for defense secretary.

    Trump first complained Sunday on Twitter about Saturday Night Live and the Broadway play "Hamilton." He then tweeted that Mattis "was very impressive yesterday. A true General's General!"
