US 'losing battle with China' as tensions boil, Rep. Darrell Issa warns
US losing the battle with China: Rep. Darrell Issa
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., discusses the growing China threat, arguing the U.S. needs to get its capital going again.
As tensions continue to boil between the U.S. and China, House Republicans are leading the charge in addressing The People’s Republic of China’s rising aggression through a series of hearings.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who serves as a senior member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, warned that the U.S. is "losing the battle" with China during an appearance on "Mornings with Maria" Wednesday.
"We’re losing the battle with China. We’re losing it on fentanyl at the border. We’re losing it on intellectual property. And apparently, we’re losing it in the balloon race," he stressed.
CHINA SPY FLIGHT: WHAT TO KNOW
China's most recent offense is the spy balloon that traveled through U.S. airspace before being downed by the military.
As a result, the State Department is looking into the possibility of imposing sanctions on entities connected to China's spy balloon program as the investigation yields more information about the origins of the downed airship's surveillance components.
