Governor Ron DeSantis explained today why China has become so powerful and he puts the blame right on the American elites:
“The idea of American elites was if you let China into WTO, that’ll make them more like us. U.S. elites are the #1 reason China is so powerful. Not only have we NOT influenced China to be more like the Western tradition — but China is influencing the West.” @GovRonDeSantis today pic.twitter.com/Ty0nZ5GARB

He’s not wrong about any of this as far as I can tell.
Look, I won’t pretend to be an expert on all of this, but let me just say how refreshing it is to hear DeSantis speak so eloquently and thoughtfully on an issue like China. He’s not a fly-by-night wannabe politician who has to cram foreign policy before a debate. The man knows his stuff and I can’t wait for the day until I get to cast a vote for him as president.
