Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis cautioned that the internal strife roiling the country between those who disagree politically is serious enough to be considered a national security threat.

CBS’ Face the Nation host Margaret Brennan asked Mattis on Sunday what he thinks is the biggest national security threat to the United States, to which the retired Marine Corps general responded, “I think the biggest national security threat can be broken into two segments.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Mattis first pointed to Russia and China as the nation’s most dangerous external enemies because of their authoritarian and imperialistic impulses. “So, externally I would look at those two. That’s why we rewrote the national defense strategy to acknowledge the reality of those nations — not the nations that we wanted to be dealing with, but the Russia of Putin, the reality; the China of President Xi.”
