DNI Ratcliffe: China the Only Country Capable of 'Taking Away the American Dream'
Director of National Intelligence says the 'intelligence is clear'
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe warned that China poses a threat to the United States like no other country.
During Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Ratcliffe said, “no other country has the capability of essentially taking away the American Dream."
Ratcliffe also warned of China's "specific plan" to take away America's freedom while stating the "intelligence is clear.”
“There are a lot of people who, for economic reasons, don’t want China to be our greatest threat."
"There are a lot of people who, for political reasons, don’t want China to be our greatest threat in America," he added.
"But the intelligence doesn’t lie," Ratcliffe warned.
"China is our greatest threat, and it’s not even close, no other country has the capability of essentially taking away the American Dream and a specific plan to do so, and the intelligence is clear.”
Earlier this month, Ratcliffe warned of the scale of China's threat to the United States and the world.
Ratcliffe said China is running a "massive influence campaign" to sway lawmakers to the will of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
In an op-ed in the Washington Post, the National Intelligence Director outlined the worrying signals of how China is now a growing threat.
"If I could communicate one thing to the American people from this unique vantage point, it is that the People's Republic of China poses the greatest threat to America today and the greatest threat to democracy and freedom worldwide since World War II," wrote Ratcliffe.
Last month, a Chinese sociologist declared it was "only a matter of time" before China overtakes the United States before eliminating the nation.
Dr. Li Y's chilling declaration was reported by MEMRI TV, a research organization that tracks Islamic extremism around the world and anti-Semitism.
“Chinese sociologist Dr. Li Yi said in an October 16, 2020 speech delivered at the Shenzhenwan Dialogue Forum in Shenzhen, China that China would overtake the United States in GDP by 2027, and that COVID-19 has been harmful to the U.S. and Europe but beneficial to China and North Korea,” MEMRI reported.
Meanwhile, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich highlighted how Joe Biden's family worked with China to enrich themselves through personal business dealings.
In a new op-ed for Fox News, Gingrich said the Bidens worked with the Chinese Communist Party to get rich at America's expense.
Biden repeatedly described a rising China as a “positive development” for America and the world.
