Secretary of State Mike Pompeo dismissed former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis' criticism of the Trump administration's “America First” foreign policy approach as "dead wrong" on Tuesday.
"I have a lot of respect for Jim, but he's just dead wrong on that," Pompeo told "Special Report" host Bret Baier. "'America First' has been at its heart, a recognition that when America is secure at home, when America does good things for our own economy, for our own prosperity, that America will be a force for good.
Pompeo was responding to a Foreign Affairs magazine op-ed headlined “Defense in Depth,” and co-authored by Mattis, American Enterprise Institute Director of Foreign and Defense Policy Studies Kori Schake, Hoover Institution fellow and former Commander of U.S. Strategic Command Jim Ellis, and Hoover Institution fellow Joe Felter.
The authors said they hope Biden "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."
