DeSantis Tackles China: ‘Biggest Threat’ To U.S., Won’t Tolerate Invasion Of Taiwan, ‘Would’ Ban TikTok | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis came out swinging against China during an interview with Piers Morgan this week, saying that the communist nation represents the biggest threat that the U.S. faces and that he would not tolerate an invasion of Taiwan.

    The remarks come as U.S. officials have increasingly warned that China is preparing to invade the island nation and that the U.S. may end up at war with China in the next couple of years.

    Taiwan is of utmost strategic importance to the U.S. because the overwhelming majority of the world's advanced semiconductors are manufactured by the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC).

    Former Trump national security adviser Robert O'Brien said earlier this month that if China invades Taiwan that the U.S. will destroy TSMC's facilities rather than allow China to capture them, which would make them "the new OPEC of silicon chips" and allow China to "control the world economy."

    "The United States and its allies are never going to let those factories fall into Chinese hands," O'Brien said.

    DeSantis was asked about the increasing tensions in the region during an interview with Morgan on Fox Nation and whether the U.S. should get involved if China invades.

    "That would be aggression," DeSantis said. "Absolutely it would be aggression. Taiwan is a strong ally of the United States. I think that's a critical interest, for us but also for our key allies like Japan and South Korea, and I think overall the number one issue that we face internationally is checking the growth and the rise of China."

    "They're much more powerful than Putin and Russia are, and they really represent the biggest threat that we've seen to our ability to lead since the Soviet Union," he continued.

    When asked about whether he would ban Chinese-controlled TikTok, DeSantis responded, "I would."

    "I think it's a security risk, they are harvesting so much data on our citizens," DeSantis continued. "There's a whole bunch of other apps and stuff that are out there, and honestly Piers, I've got young kids. I don't want our kids on some of this stuff. It's not healthy for them. The TikTok in China is sanitized, it's more wholesome. Here they're putting in a lot of bad stuff too. So, I think it's had a corrosive impact but that in of itself wouldn't be enough, what's enough though is how they're harvesting that to use against the American people."

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Among the many other lackluster performance standards by the Biden Administration - the most recent, allowing the Chinese Spy Balloon unfettered access to the skies above this Sovereign Republic - Joe Biden's foreign policy is considered by most true experts to be mediocre to abysmal at best. If one were to give a fair assessment of the quality of this apex duty of this Executive Branch: What would be your opinion of the Biden Administration's Foreign Policy initiatives and, or obvious faux pas?
  President Biden is a Foreign Policy expert of consummate skill just like his brother, Jim, and his son, Hunter.
  America's First Idiot President is corruptly committed to making the World far less safe, while surrendering OUR United States of America's sovereignty whenever, wherever possible.
  Mr. Biden is MY President because I pay close attention to only what rewards me, thus demanding as little sacrifice as is my nature to offer, or shrug.
