In the eyes of retired Air Force Gen. Robert Spalding, what is the most powerful tactic the Chinese communist regime uses to exert its influence on Taiwan, the US, and beyond?

What was it like to see democracy in action during the recent Taiwan elections? Will they impact Beijing’s calculations around invading Taiwan?

What is the significance of the China phase 1 trade deal? What kind of enforcement measures does it have?

And, why is it critical that the US not become complacent about the communist China threat?

This is American Thought Leaders 🇺🇸, and I’m Jan Jekielek.

In this episode, we’ll sit down with Robert Spalding, who previously served as Chief China strategist for the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, and on the National Security Council. Currently, he is a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute.
