What does the Secretary of Defense think of Trump's Muslim ban?

General Mattis, Trump's Secretary of Defense, talking last month about the idea of banning Muslim immigrants:

On Trump’s call for a ban on Muslim immigrants, Mattis said that such talk prompts U.S. allies to think “we have lost faith in reason.”

“They think we’ve completely lost it," he said. "This kind of thing is causing us great damage right now, and it’s sending shock waves through this international system."

Where is this guy now? Cowering in the background like the rest of Trump's lickspittles?

I have been lectured over and over by Trump supporters and abetters about how reasonable, sober, and honorable people like Mattis will provide a balance to Trump's worst impulses. Where is he now?
