RIP Ambassador Faith Whittlesey, a loyal Trump supporter

Washington Examiner, June 18, 2018

I first met the late Ambassador Faith Whittlesey in Fall 2016, and we quickly got into an argument.

She passed away last month, at the age of 79. Our argument, between two staunch Trump supporters, was about foreign policy.

Numerous obituaries and tributes have been written about Whittlesey and her extraordinary career. She was twice President Reagan’s ambassador to Switzerland, the director of Reagan’s Office of Public Liaison and the most senior woman on Reagan’s White House staff, a Pennsylvania state legislator who helped deliver the state to Reagan in 1980, an ardent pro-lifer and supporter of the Second Amendment, chairman and president of the American Swiss Foundation, and an early and staunch supporter of President Trump.

I got to know her best as a fellow Trump loyalist.

China’s Rising Influence: Restraint, Humility, and the ‘Ungrateful Fool’

Washington Examiner, December 4, 2017

In the humidity of late summer, I walked into the master practitioner’s office in Hong Kong.

He was a distinguished doctor of Chinese medicine, who counted movie stars such as Jackie Chan, Mark Wahlberg, and others as former patients. He was also a well-respected martial arts master, whose lineage intertwined with that of the legendary Bruce Lee.

I was visiting from Washington, D.C., and was seeking martial arts instruction and medical treatment.

Back home, blaring news headlines provided daily reminders of China’s growing political and economic power, while talking heads and policy types regularly pontificated about a future in which China might displace U.S. global leadership.

Rising global influence was now China’s new bragging right. In the office of the master practitioner, however, a quieter commodity prevailed — traditional Chinese culture.

China vs. USA in the Trump Era

Originally published on Fox News, July 16, 2017

Chinese leaders are determined to challenge U.S. dominance in Asia and had never planned on asking for American permission, no matter who occupies the White House.

U.S. global leadership also is not premised on blindly following the preferences of other countries. Additionally, under Trump’s predecessor, U.S. foreign policy bounced between setback and blunder, especially in Asia. The Trump administration would be wise not to rush into the same exercise.
