SEC. MATTIS: Yes, I know. What I've always said is we have to define the problem of setting out (inaudible),
and you'll find this in everything you do in the Pentagon. I've even used Einstein's quote, if asked how he would save the world, how would be compose his thoughts.

Q: I don't think they're going to very transparent, sir.
SEC. MATTIS: Pardon?

Q: I don't think they're going to be very transparent on that one.

THE PRESIDENT: We just had a very nice talk. We actually get along. And — a really good talk.
