William Parker Talks Trump Cabinet

Media Coverage | January 18, 2017

EWI Chief Operating Officer, Dr. William J. Parker III, appeared on The David Webb Show on Monday, discussing U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's cabinet picks, most notably his choice for secretary of defense, General James Mattis.

General Mattis—who has had a 41-year career in the Marine Corps leading troops in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq—“is known as a very cerebral guy who just happens to be a pure war-fighter at the same time,” said Parker.

Mattis, who headed the U.S. Central Command until retiring in 2013, "will be a rock solid secretary of defense," Parker added.

"Secretary of Defense is one of the key positions that they cannot afford to get wrong and I commend the President-elect for his selection."
