Phil Stewart and Idrees Ali, Remember 'China, China, China': Acting US Defense Chief. Reuters, Jan 2, 2019.

the first four paragraphs:

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Acting US Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan told civilian leaders of the US military on Wednesday to focus on 'China, China, China,' even as America fights militants in Syria [whose Trump ordered pullout triggered Jim Mattis's resignation that Trump said would be effective on Jan 1, 2019] and Afghanistan, a US defense official said.

"The comments came during Shanahan's first meeting with secretaries of the U.S. military branches since taking over for Jim Mattis, who left office on Monday after resigning as defense secretary over policy differences with President Donald Trump.

"The US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, did not elaborate on Shanahan's views on China or what other guidance he gave during the meeting.

"Other officials have described Shanahan as an advocate of the Pentagon's toughening stance toward Beijing. The 2018 National Defense Strategy branded China as a strategic competitor.
