Earlier today, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows spoke about the increasing tensions between China and the United States.
According to Breitbart, Meadows blasted China saying the United States will not “stand by” and let others “take the reigns in terms of being the most powerful, dominant force.”
“[O]ur mission is to make sure that the world knows that we still have the preeminent fighting force on the face of the globe. This president has invested more in our military, more in not only the hardware but the men and women who serve so sacrificIally each and every day. He continues to do so. But the message is clear: We’re not going to stand by and let China or anyone else take the reins in terms of being the most powerful, dominant force, whether it’s in that region or over here. ”
Adding, “The message is clear: Our military might stands strong and will continue to stand strong whether it’s in relationship to a conflict between India and China, or anywhere else.”
