(Abdul–Rahman Oladimeji Bello, Headline USA) Gordon Chang, author of The Great U.S.-China Tech War and fellow at the Gatestone Institute, slammed the Biden administration over the weekend for weak responses to China’s spying.
Speaking with host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News, the author warned that things could get out of control if the Biden administration fails to take a more rigid stance on China’s recent actions, the Daily Wire reported. These actions included sending a spy balloon to traverse the American homeland, along with the CCP operating police stations on American soil with little to no interruptions from the Biden administration.
“The Chinese have been running around our country for decades, Chinese consular officials, ministry of state security agents, openly violating our sovereignty, committing crimes and getting away with it,” Chang told the Fox News host. “So of course they thought they could open up six locations. We have got to stop this.”
“Look, spy balloons, police stations, fentanyl: The Chinese think they can do whatever they want in our territory, and if we don’t stop them now, this is going to get out of control,” he continued.
A report from the New York Post revealed that federal officials arrested two New York residents last week. The officials arrested these people for allegedly running an illegal “police station” for China in New York. The report added that there are at least six more illegal “police stations” spread across the country in states like Los Angeles, Nebraska and Minnesota.
According to the Fox News report, Chang also noted that China is becoming more aggressive with its efforts as the Biden administration has painted a false perspective of the communist nation.
“That is, I think, a matter of grave concern to the American people because the president of the United States has made it clear that he really doesn’t want to defend us,” Chang said.
Bartiromo also interviewed Jonathan D.T. Ward, a China expert and the author of China’s Vision of Victory, regarding Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen’s call for a “constructive” relationship with China.
“Maybe somebody needs to explain to Secretary Yellen how the CCP is investing the money that they’ve earned from three decades worth of economic engagement,” Ward said. Ward further noted that China had made intentions to economically overtake the United States pretty straightforward, and a “real” strategy is needed to contain China economically.
