Marine General James Mattis will be Secretary of Defense

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James Mattis as his secretary of defense, a source with knowledge of the transition says.

Mattis, 66, joins a Trump national security team that already includes retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn as national security adviser and Rep. Mike Pompeo as CIA director.
The official announcement is expected early next week. Trump’s transition spokesman Jason Miller tweeted a denial that the decision had been made.
