Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, weighed in on concerns raised over China’s purchase of farmland near Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota in “The Ingraham Angle.”
TOM COTTON: China is not the United States. China is a communist country. And in the United States, if a US citizen wants to buy a farm in Canada or buy a timeshare condo in Mexico, they can. They don’t have to ask our government for permission. But in China, if you want to leave the country, if you want to take your money out of the country, then, in effect, you have to ask the Chinese Communist Party for permission and follow their orders if they ask you to. .
AS CHINA TAKES A STRONGHOLD IN AMERICA, CONGRESS IS ‘SLEEPING AT THE WHEEL’, SAYS FORMER PENTAGON OFFICIAL
That’s why we should just stop these kinds of farmland buyouts, or food companies, or Chinese companies building new food companies here in America like they’re trying to do out of Grand Air Force Base. Forks in North Dakota, doing God knows what. closer to that base. We should stop it. It shouldn’t be allowed.
