Several experts on the United States relationship with China are weighing in after Biden’s Department of Justice announced Wednesday it is halting a Trump-era initiative that cracked down on Chinese spying.

The Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it is ending its “China Initiative” program that was aimed at preventing spying by the Chinese Communist Party and launching a new, “broader approach.”

The China Initiative was started in 2018 under the Trump administration to protect U.S. national security against Chinese spying on U.S. intellectual property and in academia. The DOJ website said it was aimed at “identifying and prosecuting those engaged in trade secret theft, hacking, and economic espionage,” as well as “protecting our critical infrastructure against external threats through foreign direct investment and supply chain compromises.”

“China is stealing hundreds of billions of dollars of U.S. intellectual property each year,” columnist and author Gordon Chang told Fox News Digital in response to the announcement. “John Ratcliffe, when he was director of national intelligence, estimated it was about $500 billion annually. So China should be the focus of U.S. efforts and now to drop the China Initiative sends a message to Beijing and everyone else that it’s open season on Americans.”

You might remember that Biden has long been a champion of China, no doubt in large part ebcause of the money he and his family were scoring

“A rising China is a positive, positive development not only for China, but for America and the world at large.”
