"327mm Americans now see China as our rival, our adversary, an enemy, a rising threat to be contained. And that really matters."
"How Chinas Economic Aggression Threatens the Technologies and Intellectual Property of the United States and the World," was the title of the 65-page White House Trade and Manufacturing Policy Report in June.

"Chinese security agencies masterminded the wholesale theft of US technology, including cutting-edge military blueprints, and using that stolen technology, the Chinese Communist Party is turning plowshares into swords on a massive scale," explained VP Pence in Oct.
"The attack by Chinese spies reached almost 30 US companies, including Amazon and Apple, by compromising Americas technology supply chain, according to extensive interviews with government and corporate sources," reported Bloomberg in October.
"The US has had enormous concerns for years about the practice of Chinese firms to use stolen American IP, to engage in forced technology transfers, and to be used as arms of the Chinese govt's objectives," said Security Advisor Bolton this week.
"The US was pursuing Huawei's CFO as part of a criminal probe related to attempts by Huawei to sell US-made equipment to Iran in violation of sanctions," reported the FT this week.
"When people or countries come in to raid the great wealth of our Nation, I want them to pay for the privilege of doing so. It will always be the best way to max out our economic power," tweeted Trump.
