46% of entrepreneurs and 43% of retirees are more likely than government workers (38%) or private sector workers (30%) to believe that China has considerable influence over US elected officials.
China clearly has influence over the US. However, this is the product of the US’s lax migratory and trade policies that allow China to buy off politicians and sleazy businessmen, while inserting scores of spies and other subversive agents in America’s military, educational, and commercial institutions.
To eliminate this noxious influence, the US must decouple trade with China and fully restrict immigration from there as well.
