President Donald Trump unveiled his policy plans regarding China and warned against its influence in the United States in a special video message released Wednesday.
Captioning his video on Truth Social, the 45th president stated, “When I’m president, I will ensure that America’s future remains firmly in American hands, not in China’s. We need to enact aggressive new restrictions on Chinese ownership of any vital infrastructure in the United States, including energy, technology, telecommunications, farmland, natural resources, medical supplies, and other strategic national assets.”
In his video message to the American people, Trump warned that China is “buying up” the United States. Specifically, he said China is purchasing America’s technology, farmland, food supplies, ports, shipping terminals, minerals, and natural resources. Trump also claimed that China is attempting to buy the “pillars” of America’s energy industry with the help of “corrupt influence peddlers,” such as Joe Biden and his family.
Trump blasted Joe Biden and his administration for only focusing on “nonsense energy” that he argues does not work and “never will.”
“While corrupt Democrats and RINO-type politicians in Washington have been spending trillions of dollars on the Green New Deal nonsense, foolish foreign wars, and providing lavish benefits to illegal aliens from all over the planet, China has been spending trillions of dollars to take over the crown jewels of the United States economy,” Trump stated. “And they are doing that.”
The 45th president warned that while some Americans have raised concerns regarding the Chinese purchase of land near American power plants and military bases, people should be “very concerned” about all “Chinese Communist activity” in the country. Citing his past policy, Trump said, “Economic security is national security.”
Since China does not allow American companies to “take over” its infrastructure, Trump said the United States “should not allow China” to take over its infrastructure.
“I didn’t allow it when I was president, and I won’t allow it when we become president again,” the 45th president stated.
After warning Americans about the threat of China’s “takeover” of critical American infrastructure, Trump offered a solution for the United States government. Trump said the United States should halt “all future Chinese purchases” in critical infrastructure industries and “force” the Chinese to sell current holdings in the United States that could present a national security risk. The 45th president warned that if America does not take action, the country will be “owned by China.”
“When I’m president, I will ensure that America’s future remains firmly in American hands just as I did when I was president before,” he said. “It’ll happen again, and our country will be stronger than ever.”
