The U.S. has already imposed about $250 billion in tariffs on China, and there "might" be more on the way, the president said.

Mattis spent more than 40 years in the Marine Corps where his political views were not widely shared.

Mattis left Central Command and retired from the military in 2013.

Each agency has years of alliances, staff who have known and worked with each other for decades, and invested personnel whose Congressional budgets and legislative agendas do maintain some independence from the White House.

President Donald Trump dismisses rumors that Defense Secretary James Mattis is on his way out of the administration. "That's not the way Washington works".

President Donald Trump: I think something's happening.

"I have people now on standby that will be phenomenal", Trump said. Here are the other notable moments from Trump's "60 Minutes" appearance. Scarborough echoed that sentiment, saying that Trump looked like "a big baby", and after a weird back and forth where they said the word "baby" like six times, Brzezinski added that the president looked "really, really ill-equipped and unfit to lead this country".

First, Stahl seemed to want to conduct a definitive interview with Trump summarizing his presidency so far. There're some people that I'm not happy with.

The interview followed an ABC News exclusive with first lady Melania Trump, in which she said she has warned her husband that he can not trust some of the key people around him.

60 Minutes: What about General Mattis?

Responding to a question about whether Matthis was going to leave, Trump said: "It could be that he is". He hasn't told me that. "When I say, 'Obama did it, ' you don't want to talk about it".

In his remarks on Mattis, Trump did not close the door to him remaining in the post as the Pentagon's top civilian, where he has been a stable influence in an administration marked by high turnover. It could be that he is.

Characterizing the Pentagon chief as a "good guy", and reiterating that they "get along very well", Trump repeated: "He may leave". "I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. People leave. That's Washington".

"I disagree, but I don't want to have that fight with you", Stahl said.

TRUMP: No, it's not true.

60 Minutes: What's not true?

"I'm not gonna get into it because we won", Trump eventually answered. I don't think it's a hoax; I think there's probably a difference. "I wish you could go to Greenland", Stahl mused in the brief portion of the interview dealing with climate change, "watch these huge chunks of ice just falling into the ocean, raising the sea levels".
