In December of 2018, General James “Mad Dog” Mattis resigned from his position as Secretary of Defense because he disagreed with President Trump’s America First approach to foreign policy.
In his resignation letter, Mattis wrote that America needed a Secretary of Defense “whose views are better aligned” with President Trump’s.
But the foreign policy advice James “Mad Dog” Mattis just gave Joe Biden will leave you speechless.
During his time as Secretary of Defense – even though he disagreed with the President’s foreign policy – when critics accused Donald Trump of taking an isolationist approach, James Mattis defended the President, saying “when we talk about ‘America First’ – it’s not America alone.”
But Mattis is now singing a different tune, writing in a new article that “America First” really means “America alone.”
“In practice, ‘America first’ has meant ‘America alone.’ That has damaged the country’s ability to address problems before they reach U.S. territory and has thus compounded the danger emergent threats pose,” Mattis wrote in his scathing article.
He then went on to beg Joe Biden to completely “eliminate ‘America First’” when he “begins to reevaluate U.S. foreign policy.”
“In January, when President Joe Biden and his national security team begin to reevaluate U.S. foreign policy, we hope they will quickly revise the national security strategy to eliminate ‘America First’ from its contents, restoring in its place the commitment to cooperative security that has served the United States so well for decades,” wrote Mattis.
But Mattis didn’t stop there.
Mattis then goes on to recommend that Joe Biden “seek greater peace, not confrontation” with China – meaning give China back their unfair trade advantage over American jobs and workers.
Of course, General Mattis has a history of seeking high-level appointments.
Before serving as Secretary of Defense under President Trump, Mattis served as the head of the military’s Central Command under Barack Obama.
