There will now be an official National Patriotism Day.
By: Leigh Cuen / ATTN On his first day as President, Donald Trump started signing laws and decrees, beginning with a bill allowing his pick to head the Defense Department, James Mattis, to take the job despite a rule requiring the Pentagon chief to be out of military uniform for at least seven years.
Mattis, known for his tough stance on Iran and tendency for bombastic opinions about violence towards enemies, is now expected to be approved by the Senate with bipartisan support this Friday afternoon.

@realDonaldTrump I'm pretty sure we already have a day of Patriotism called Independence Day. I'll stick with that one thanks.

National Day of Patriotism is on page one of every dictator's handbook.

Before giving his writing hand a rest, President Trump also signed documents making his cabinet nominees official. For the first time in nearly 30 years, the president’s team does not include any Latinos.
