Trump Claims the FBI Would Be Focused on Chinese Spying If He Won Election

Former President Trump declared on Friday that a reformed FBI and Justice Department would be pursuing Chinese spies, rather than Republicans.

Trump Takes Chinese Spying Seriously

The former president said when he was in office, he set up a special project at the Department of Justice whose main goal was to stop Chinese spies from working in the United States.

In the video, Trump claimed Biden abruptly canceled that project after alleging that it was somehow racist.

According to published sources, the Chinese spying was stopped right away when a letter was sent to Merrick Garland from 160 academic employees at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Finance

This is where he went to school and where the now-famous Biden Center is located.

The Department of Justice ended the China Initiative on February 23, 2022. This was because the Chinese Communist Party, woke activists, academics, Democratic lawmakers, and other groups said it was unfair.

Following this, the Department of Defense said it was monitoring a Chinese surveillance balloon above Montana, where Malmstrom Air Force Base, which houses the 341st Missile Wing, is situated. Trump then published the video.

In a statement on Truth Social, Trump urged for the balloon to be brought down.

Trump claimed he had taken the most drastic measures of any government to stop China from snooping on Americans. He went on to say that those measures will be greatly increased once he returns to the White House after the next presidential election.

A revamped FBI and Justice Department would be looking for Chinese spies, rather than Republicans. Trump promised he and his administration will work with businesses and academic institutions to form new partnerships and give them the tools they need to protect themselves from insider threats.

Trump also brought up the fact that there are Chinese police posts in the country. Following an FBI operation last October, a facility in New York was closed down.

He went on to say the FBI only recently acknowledged that China maintains a covert police operation on American soil. He quizzed his audience by asking them how that information suited them or how it made them feel.

He then said Americans should just consider the idea of the Communist Party’s control being imposed with an iron grip on Chinese citizens living in the United States. Trump stated, “We’ll stop that and we’ll stop it immediately.”

A Twitter account called “MAGA War Room” posted a Tweet on Friday afternoon stating that if Trump were in office, China would not have had the guts to spy on America, let alone send a surveillance balloon.

Whether you like Trump or not, we can all agree that the post is not wrong.
