Job 1 for the Next POTUS will be the Chinese Communist Party

While there are myriad uncertainties about the outcome of next week’s presidential election, one thing is certain. The winner will have as Job One contending with the threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party to our national security, the U.S. economy and, in all likelihood, our  public health.

It is equally clear that Xi Jingping’s dictatorship recognizes how high the stakes are in our elections for China. The extent of its intervention in our national decision is the subject of a frightening new film available for free on YouTube by Chinese expatriate Simone Gao and called “The American Republic vs. the CCP.” It documents, for example, how Beijing has even weaponized big data-collecting apps like TikTok to influence voters in this country.

We have never faced a bigger threat than Communist China. Our next Commander-in-Chief must understand that. So must American voters.

This is Frank Gaffney.
