House Republicans on the Homeland Security Committee are demanding clear answers about the Biden administration’s plan to counter the threat from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The Republicans on the House committee sent a letter to National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan asking for “definitive clarity” on the White House’s plans. In the letter, the Republicans warn of the CCP’s decades-long quest to “erode America’s dominance” and “blatant efforts to weaponize their private sector for intelligence and military purposes.”
According to Fox News:
The Trump administration took a combative stance toward China, in terms of trade tariffs, electronic privacy and on human rights violations in Hong Kong and against minorities in Xinjiang province. The Biden administration has recognized China as a threat but is expected to take a less aggressive approach than the prior administration.
China’s foreign minister has said he believes Biden represents a “new window of hope” for the country’s relationship with the United States.
The Biden administration will “return to a sensible approach, resume dialogue with China, restore normalcy to the bilateral relations and restart cooperation,” Wang Yi said.
However, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told senators at his confirmation hearing that President Donald Trump was “right” in taking a tougher approach to Beijing.
