President-elect Donald Trump has chosen retired Marine Gen. James Mattis to head the Department of Defense, a move that could signal the incoming administration’s tougher positioning with nations such as Iran.

Trump made a surprise announcement of the expected appointment during a rally in Cincinnati on Thursday night, as the crowd cheered wildly.

“We are going to appoint Mad Dog Mattis as our secretary of defense,” Trump said theatrically.

He then added: “But we’re not announcing it ’til Monday, so don’t tell anyone — Mad Dog. He’s great. He is great.”
