Well, it really means White Power, but America Alone is the end result.

Prime example: China.
China policy was probably the closest Trump got to a sound foreign strategy, unfortunately it was gooned up by the administration not building a coalition of the willing (Japan, Australia, Vietnam, India, etc)  and, in fact, antagonizing many of those other countries instead. This will probably be one area President Elect Biden attempts to somewhat follow Trump policy except with coalition building.

At minimum it is stating the obvious like a f$cking asshole.  Everyone's own country is obviously their priority so it is f$cking stupid thing to say.

It would be like a birthday invitation that said "This is my birthday party and it for me because it is my birthday."   Only an asshole would phrase it that way.

I'll second this. I've worked in/with various parts of government and with other countries. It's a big complicated game out there with some really nasty people working against us. While Trump correctly gauged China's motives he's been rather naive on how the rest of it works.

No one should ever listen to a Deep State Communist Liberal like Mattis.

During Trump's second term there will be a great sorting of RINOs and false-flag "conservatives" that are secretly aligned with the globalist cabal of liberal pedophile elites.

Conservatives are going to be really embarrassed when they find out that "America First!" has been a rallying cry for racists for a very long time. They'll be like "Ohhhhh, THAT'S why everyone thinks we're racist!" I'm sure it's just a big misunderstanding.

And Trump supporters in Congress are already trying to portray this quote as "Biden doesn't support America" and are declaring their planned votes against his foreign policy team based on a quote from someone not related to the Biden transition at all.

General Mattis, the time to have said that to Trump was while you were still in his administration. On National TV. And dared him to fire you.

Now?

But thanks for your thoughts.

I'd like to create a Parler account and start posting "alternate universe" news where Trump won a second term, began jailing all his political opponents, cowed Iran and China, brought back all the jobs, won a third term, established a glorious Christian Dominion, with Himself as Grand Colonel for Life, and made it so that no good Christian American would ever be uncomfortable ever. And any news reports contradicting this timeline are fake news. Obama really was hanged in a public square in Washington, and the LIEbral media just isn't reporting on it.

Looking back it's easy to see how things went as the adults got pushed out one by one.

The thing is, that was the new normal before. You notice that the election turn-out went up when one of the candidates was a jackass like Trump? There's millions of voters in America that were disenfranchised by the lack of appeal to their conspiracy-laden, poorly-educated sensibilities. There's always been John Birtchers, Militias, Wacos, and other lunatics yearning for a candidate to represent them.

"White power" is all just a misunderstanding involving electricians. If an electrician on a job site discovers a circuit with reversed polarity, for safety they need to make sure everyone else knows the white wire is "powered". The traditional warning is to yell out "white power." Some other folks took the phrase out of context and have unfortunately really run away with it.

I'm trying to remember Mattis saying anything like this when he was in the Trump cabinet. I'm sure it'll surface, though. It's certainly not just a tantrum by a senior citizen mean girl who's still butthurt he couldn't invade more countries before getting his ass fired by a syphilitic manchild.

We had it. It was called the TPP and Congressional Republicans even supported it. It still exists in a severely weakened formed, but the non-American members aren't going to trust the USA to stick to its guns, so its potential efficacy is much less than it was in 2017.

Spot on. Congressional Republicans supported the TPP (even if they didn't campaign on it). Trump dropped out for two reasons:

1) He didn't understand it. He has said a number of times that China was going to be a member of the TPP and that it would give China more influence in the region. It's insane that this wasn't pointed out repeatedly by the media.

2) It was mainly developed under Obama. And everything Obama did needed to be purged.

Republican courage is a different sort of courage. It's the courage to speak out when the stakes are low and nothing is on the line. Tail between the legs and lips sealed when it matters, timidly venturing forth when it's clear there will be be no consequences and everyone else is dealing with the fallout of what could've been prevented.
