US Republican Senator Ted Cruz, representing the state of Texas, said on Fox Business that China is waging a “thousand-year” war against the United States.
At the same time, he did not specify whether the aforementioned confrontation has been going on for a thousand years or whether Beijing only plans to compete with Washington for so long. Cruz also failed to mention that the US as a nation was only founded 247 years ago.
“China is waging a thousand-year war against the United States. They want economic, military and global dominance. <…> Yes, China is systematically waging this war,” Cruz said.
At the same time, the senator stressed that he suspects US President Joe Biden of possible work in the interests of America’s “enemies”, primarily China, influencing economic instability within the United States.
A month earlier, South Dakota Gov. Christy Noem said China had a “two thousand year plan” to destroy the United States through information influence and the acquisition of US farmland and businesses.
