In an exclusive interview with Fox News’ The Next Revolution, China Analyst Gordon Chang called China the greatest national security threat to the US.
A senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute and author of The Coming Collapse of China, Chang stressed that the US shouldn’t be “enriching a hostile regime” that is “configuring its military to kill Americans.”
Chang is described on Wikipedia as a conservative pundit and TV analyst who has repeatedly been predicting the collapse of China since 2001. That prediction has subjected him to much criticism with John Tamny of RealClearMarkets saying Chang possesses “limited knowledge of simple economics” and that “Chang’s feel for China has been impressively incorrect for close to twenty years.”
Gordon Chang went as far as to support President Trump’s idea of completely separating the US economy from China.
According to Fox News, last month President Trump had raised the possibility of ending relations with China in an interview with Steve Hilton. “If Biden is elected, China will own our country,” Trump said.
Trump had emphasized how his administration had been “doing better than we’ve ever done with China” prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. He even described his tough approach on China as something that “nobody’s ever done.”
Chang agreed. He said, “We shouldn’t be enriching a hostile regime with our trade and with our investment. I believe that decoupling is what we absolutely have to do especially this year.”
Chang explained how “[President] Xi Jinping has been talking increasingly about this notion that China has a mandate of heaven to rule the world. They [believe that they] not only have the right to do it, they have the obligation to do it.”
Chang’s remarks came after a recent Pentagon report suggested China is prospecting to double its nuclear warheads supply in this decade, according to News Hub. The stockpile of nuclear warheads include some that can be launched from planes in the air and potentially reach the US.
Chang ended the interview by claiming, “China believes it needs to move fast and that means we’re going to see problems not in the 2030s, we’re going to see problems now.”
