Republican Senator Tom Cotton warned in an interview Tuesday about the danger of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its penetration of U.S. politics and economy. He was categorical in his speech against the Democrats and Wall Street officials, whom he accused of being complicit with the CCP and working for its interests instead of defending those of the United States.
With the collaboration of Democratic politicians, American business leaders function as CCP lobbyists within the United States, Senator Cotton said in an interview on Fox News Tuesday. Unfortunately, they selfishly advocate for the Asian power that seeks to undermine the United States and its democratic system, he said.
Cotton called on businessmen and politicians to put aside their interests and become aware of the issue’s seriousness. He assured that regardless of what the local industry giants think and say, the CCP is the number one adversary of the United States. He also accused the Asian giant of having swindled and stolen American jobs and factories.
Cotton, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said: “These corporate CEOs need to focus on bringing those jobs back to America or at least getting them out of China. Because as long as you’re operating in China, you’re susceptible to pressure from the CCP.”
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his family are themselves entangled with the CCP.
The connections that weigh on Joe Biden and his son Hunter with the CCP have become more disturbing after the New York Post obtained a copy of a hard drive from Hunter Biden’s computer. They began publishing information from it in October, proving the Biden family’s shady business connections with the CCP and other foreign powers.
Following that news, Breitbart revealed new information received from a former business partner of Hunter Biden about meetings in the White House with CCP officials.
The e-mails give details about how the former vice president’s son and his business partners used their access to the Obama-Biden administration to arrange private meetings for clients, and foreign investors at the White House’s highest level Breitbart reports exclusively. Private, unofficial meetings were held between CCP officials and then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Republicans in general and the Trump administration are committed to fighting the CCP’s abuses. FBI Director Christopher Wray was clear when he spoke about China’s threat to U.S. economic and national security during a July 7, 2020, event at the Hudson Institute in Washington.
“China is engaged in a highly sophisticated malign foreign influence campaign, and its methods include bribery, blackmail, and covert deals. Chinese diplomats also use both open, naked economic pressure and seemingly independent middlemen to push China’s preferences on American officials,” said Wray.
President Trump repeatedly warned how dangerous it would be for the nation if Joe Biden won the election. “If Sleepy Joe Biden wins … China will own the United States,” President Trump said

If there are any doubts, Joe Biden himself explicitly affirms his sympathy with the CCP.
“Is China going to eat our lunch? Come on, man,” Biden said last summer in Iowa. “They’re not bad people, folks. They’re not a competition for us.”
