Trump then called out President Joe Biden for ending Trump’s Department of Justice initiative that focused on combatting Chinese espionage within the country. Trump said:
As President, I established a special initiative at the Department of Justice tasked with the sole mission of targeting Chinese espionage in the United States. Joe Biden terminated that program right away, suggesting that it was somehow racist. According to published reports.
Trump noted that Biden’s move to end the special initiative came after 160 University of Pennsylvania faculty members demanded an end to the initiative. Trump urged Congress to “dig deep into the financial operations of the University of Pennsylvania, it’s Chinese donors, the Biden Center, and the Biden family and figure out what the hell is going on.”
Trump said he would take action against Chinese espionage within the country “in a very big way,” if he wins the 2024 presidential contest.
“As President I took the most dramatic action of any administration to curtail China’s ability to conduct espionage in the United States,” Trump said. “And when I’m back in the White House, those efforts will be expanded in a very, very big way.”
