CHINA UNSCRIPTED

147 China Co-opting the US One Local Leader at a Time

There is no politician too small for China to try to co-opt, which is why leaders all around the US have been solicited by China. In this episode of China Unscripted, we discuss China's web of influence operations in the US, whether the media should boycott the Beijing Olympics and China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) right here in the US. Joining us in this episode is Emily de la Bruyére, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and the co-author of the new monograph All Over the Map: The Chinese Communist Party’s Subnational Interests in the United States.
