Brown: “…anti-competitive decisions from left-wing politicians are kneecapping American innovators and supercharging Chinese ambitions…”
WASHINGTON – In a new op-ed for Fox News, Competitiveness Coalition Chair Scott Brown uses this week’s meeting between President Joe Biden and Chinese strongman Xi Jinping to sound the alarm on the longer term implications of the left’s pro-China stances.
“Whether intended or not, from the Biden White House and trickling downward to like-minded governors, anti-competitive decisions from left-wing politicians are kneecapping American innovators and supercharging Chinese ambitions in their quest for global dominance,” said Brown, a former Senator and Ambassador. “This fall alone, departments within the Biden Administration are pursuing high-profile lawsuits against Google and Amazon, two of America’s home-grown success stories. Newsom has signed legislation targeting both companies, despite California’s role as the incubator of technology that changed the world.”
Brown goes on to note that TikTok is not the only Chinese app Americans need to worry about: “Earlier this year, four of the five most downloaded apps in the United States were Chinese-based. TikTok grabs the most headlines, but Temu, an online marketplace and rival to Amazon, emerged as the most downloaded app in the U.S. earlier this year.”
