Biden fails yet again.
The Biden administration is currently under scrutiny for its inability to effectively address the provocative actions taken by China following the implementation of the ban on Micron chips.
According to Fox, Gordon Chang, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute and a prominent critic of the Biden administration’s approach towards China, has raised concerns about the developing “dynamic” between the United States and its longstanding adversary.
Chang expressed deep concern about the negative implications of China’s ban on Micron, which is the leading producer of semiconductors in the United States. He emphasized that this development creates an extremely unfavorable dynamic for the country.
“The reason why this is important is because that security review that Beijing said that it conducted on Micron products, that was bogus from every indication,” Chang pointed out.
China’s cybersecurity agency made an announcement on May 21, stating that “operators of critical infrastructure in China should refrain from purchasing products from Micron.” The agency cited concerns over “network security risks” that pose a threat to “China’s national security.”
Gina Raimondo, the Commerce Secretary under the Biden administration, criticized the recent decision and expressed strong disapproval. She made it clear that the United States will not tolerate the ban imposed by China.
Chang stated that the current situation is yet another test of political will and predicted that, based on historical patterns, the Biden administration would fail the test, thereby enabling continued negative behavior by China. He emphasized that this outcome occurs due to the allowance granted by the United States.
“The question is, what will the United States do to impose costs on China for banning Micron?” Chang added.
The leadership of President Biden has served as a catalyst for members of Congress, inspiring them to introduce their own legislation aimed at restraining China’s behavior.
In March, Senator Josh Hawley, a Republican from Missouri, introduced the Ending Normal Trade Relations with China Act. This proposed legislation mandates the withdrawal of China’s most favored nation trade status by the United States, two years after the enactment of the bill.
