In an excerpt from a 60 Minutes interview that will air in full Sunday (Oct 14) USA time on CBS, Trump talked about the level of turnover in his administration after nearly two years, and suggested there could be more to come.

Stahl asked Trump if more staffers will leave the White House, noting the "record turnover" that has characterized his administration and mentioned Defense Secretary James Mattis.

"It could be that he is". "I think he's sort of a Democrat, if you want to know the truth".

He said that while he was satisfied with the performance of certain members of his administration, there are others "that I'm not thrilled with".

In September, the New York Times reported that Trump and Mattis' relationship had grown increasingly tense in recent months, alleging that the president was mulling replacing Mattis after the November midterm elections. And I'm entitled to.

Trump said he had lunch with Mattis two days earlier and the retired Marine four-star general had not told him that he was leaving. Stahl asked, "What about General Mattis?"

One factor thought to have darkened Mattis' prospects is this year's arrival in the White House of Mira Ricardel, who now has the powerful post of deputy national security adviser and is believed to dislike Mattis, current and former officials have told Reuters. "But General Mattis is a good guy". They'll come into the administration. "We're going to do whatever we can do to get it slowed down".

"Yeah, other people will go, sure", Trump said.

Last week, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley announced she would be joining the growing list of departed Trump officials at the end of the year.

Trump's comments came during an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes."

"I mean, at some point, everybody leaves", Trump said Sunday.
