Tom Cotton Calls to End Admission of “Hundreds of Thousands” Of Chinese Students to American Universities

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton laid out a series of policy prescriptions to punish China for its malfeasance in covering up the now-global coronavirus epidemic while speaking with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum on Thursday.

Cotton advocates for an incentive program to encourage American businesses to ‘reshore’ from the communist authoritarian nation from China, restoring American manufacturing capabilities that have been devastated by decades of globalist free trade policies.

Cotton is also questioning the wisdom of admitting hundreds of thousands of Chinese students into science and technology programs at American universities.
