Nikki Haley, the former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and a 2024 Republican presidential candidate, reportedly raised alarm bells on China Wednesday, claiming that agents of the Communist power have already “infiltrated” the country.
Haley, who has frequently criticized the Biden administration and former President Donald Trump for their management of the China threat, joined former Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon on her podcast on Wednesday to discuss a variety of topics, including the border crisis and foreign policy.
Dixon asked the presidential candidate what she thought about President Joe Biden’s statement last week that he wanted to “see China succeed economically.”
The former governor of South Carolina informed Dixon that China already poses a threat to the United States by purchasing U.S. land, investing millions of dollars in American universities, stealing research, and disseminating Chinese propaganda.
Haley also drew attention to the Chinese Communist Party’s role in the fentanyl epidemic that killed an estimated 70,000 Americans in 2021 alone.

Haley criticized Biden and Trump on another foreign policy issue earlier this month, stating that Biden was too feeble and Trump was too friendly with U.S. adversary North Korea.
The news of a meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jon Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin had just broken when she made her remarks. Wednesday, at a summit, the two leaders discussed military cooperation.
