Former President Donald Trump on Friday harshly criticized his successor’s do-nothing attitude toward Chinese spying inside the United States.
Trump also vowed that, if elected in 2024, he would reinvigorate his previous efforts to crack down on Beijing’s operatives who maneuver with America with impunity on President Joe Biden’s watch.
In a video released on Rumble on Friday, Trump noted, “It’s rarely even mentioned that China has many thousands of spies working in the United States in business, finance, academia, technology, media and likely, even government, very sadly.”

Trump recalled that as president he had established a special initiative within the Department of Justice that was 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,” he added.
Trump then noted that Biden disbanded the initiative after 160 University of Pennsylvania faculty members wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding that it be ended.
Penn has close connections to Biden in a couple of ways.
After he left office as vice president in 2017, the Ivy League school hired Biden as a “professor,” paying him nearly $1 million for a job he never performed.
And as has been revealed over the past few weeks, Penn also sponsored the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement in Washington.

Biden kept an office there, and last month Americans learned he reportedly had stashed classified documents there — something Biden’s lawyers discovered just days before the November elections but kept silent until early January.
Trump, in his video on Friday, encouraged 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.”
“As president,” he continued, “I took the most dramatic action of any administration to curtail China’s ability to conduct espionage in the United States. And when I’m back in the White House, those efforts will be expanded in a very, very big way.”
“Instead of hunting down Republicans,” said Trump, “a reformed FBI and Justice Department will be hunting down Chinese spies. We will create new partnerships with businesses and universities to give them the tools to protect themselves from insider threats.”
Trump also pledged to impose “whatever visa sanctions and travel restrictions are necessary to shut off Chinese access to American secrets.”

“The FBI even recently admitted that China operates a secret police force on American soil. How do you like that one?” he concluded. “Imposing the iron fist of the Communist Party … on Chinese nationals in the United States. Just think about that.”
“We will shut that down, and we will shut it down cold.”
