China will be shackled; Trump’s new announcement is aimed at the White House Trump vows to ban Chinese investment in US farmland US News

Houston ∙ Former US President Donald Trump is back with a strong stance against China. In a new 2024 campaign video released on Wednesday, Donald Trump made it clear that he would strip Chinese-backed companies of the right to buy “critical infrastructure” in the US. The former president accused the Chinese government and its dollar-denominated businesses of “spending trillions of dollars to usurp the crown of the American economy.” He also makes an important demand that Chinese nationals be barred from buying US farmland.

Florida Representative Mike Waltz responded by saying he was glad to raise the issue on the 2024 campaign trail. He has been a vocal voice in Congress against China’s growing influence. His actions are behind taking steps to stop Chinese dominance in Florida. “As a national security threat, this issue needs the support of leaders across the country, and I’m glad President Trump has made it a campaign priority,” Waltz said.

Trump also said that if re-elected, he will ban Chinese investment in American farms. Donald Trump has announced a strategic proposal to counter the growing influence of China through his social account Truth. “Steps are taken to control such purchases by the Chinese Communist Party and other hostile foreign entities. Florida’s Strategic Land Plan is exemplary in this regard. “I hope the lawmakers take care of this,” Trump said.

Trump claimed in his new video that China is buying our technology. ‘They buy food, they buy our farmland, they buy our minerals and natural resources, they buy our ports and shipping terminals, and as I’ve said time long ago, economic security is national security. . China does not allow American companies to acquire critical infrastructure. “The United States should not allow China to take over our critical infrastructure,” Trump said.

Trump also called for preventing China from taking control of any critical US infrastructure, including energy, technology, telecommunications, agricultural land, natural resources, medical supplies and other strategic national assets. The former president called for an immediate end to involvement with China and entities that support them and pressure on them to remove existing ownership interests that ‘endanger our national security’.

“If we don’t do this, China will own America, which will make them very happy,” Trump said. A key part of his plan is a complete ban on Chinese citizens buying American farmland. It is not immediately clear how practical a policy point is to implement it.

Texas GOP Rep. Ronny Jackson was quick to praise Trump’s plan. “China should be barred from any kind of ownership of our infrastructure. President Trump is the only person who can destroy China’s influence in our country. “If we are going to stop China, we have to put President Trump back in the White House,” he tweeted.

Under the Agricultural Foreign Investment Disclosure Act of 1978, foreign transactions involving US agricultural land must be disclosed to the USDA. But there is an idea among the members to renew the four decades old law. Under President Xi Jinping, China’s power on the world stage is considered to have greatly increased through various economic investments and military developments.

Iowa Republican Representative Ashley Hinson said last week that China is buying up US farmland at an ‘alarming rate’, the Quad City Times reported. She has introduced legislation to increase transparency in the purchase of US farmland by foreigners, and has proposed measures including security assessments and warnings for ‘idle’ land leases.

Trump’s plan on Wednesday is similar to a proposal presented by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to curb Chinese purchases in the Sunshine State. DeSantes is also eyeing the presidency. From farmland to retirement real estate, DeSantis said at a recent press conference that he wants such a ban to be “as broad as possible.”
