The statement also said that threats from China are growing, and the purpose of the working group is to comprehensively clarify, prioritize and coordinate how the U.S. Department of Homeland Security responds to these threats..

The first half of the statement focused on Wolfes many groundless views on China. Wolfe claimed that China poses a threat to the US homeland and lifestyle, and his department of homeland security is at the forefront of the fight against these China Threats.
Wolfe said that Chinas malicious activities in the fields of trade, network security, immigration and intellectual property rights are growing at an alarming rate. He also constantly declared how important his department is: the role of the Department of Homeland Security in curbing malicious activities in China has never been so important and timely.
To protect the economic prosperity, national security and fundamental freedoms of the United States from being damaged by China, the statement listed a series of actions to be taken by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in the near future.
Among them, it wrote as follows: cooperate with local governments at all levels to crack down on Chinas false information propaganda or distort the public opinion of the United States; punish Chinese manufacturers of illegal medical products during the outbreak of Xinguan epidemic; refuse to allow high-risk Chinese graduate students holding class F and J visa to enter the country in order to prevent intellectual property rights being stolen.
Nowadays, hyping the China Threat Theory has become a daily practice of some American politicians, who constantly incite an anti China atmosphere.
On July 7, Christopher Wray, director of the Federal Bureau of investigation, claimed that China was infiltrating the United States and China was trying to become the only superpower in the world.. On July 16, U.S. Attorney General William Barr advocated Chinas ambition in Sino US relations and slandered Chinas stealing American technology.
On July 23, U.S. Secretary of state pompeio even went to Nixons Library and the front door of his former residence. He made a iron curtain speech 2.0 and announced the failure of us contact with China. He claimed that the old mode of blind contact with China could not be continued. He also intended to unite with other countries to pressure China to change.
It is worth noting that the establishment of a China task force by federal government departments such as the US Department of homeland security is nothing new. As early as may this year, a group of American politicians organized and established a China task force.
On May 7, Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives announced the establishment of a China task force to address Chinas challenges to the United States at all levels.. Since then, the working group has made frequent actions. They have also made a clear division of labor according to the five major conflict areas between China and the United States, specifically divided into five pillar groups, and put forward their own policy recommendations on the threat posed by China.
On July 24, State Councilor and foreign minister Wang Yi talked about the current Sino US relations. He said that the current difficulties in Sino US relations are entirely caused by the United States, and its purpose is to completely interrupt Chinas development process, which can be done by any means or even without a bottom line. Recently, some anti china forces on the US side have deliberately created ideological antagonism and openly coerced other countries to choose their sides to stand on their own side. However, any country with conscience and independent spirit will not be associated with it.
Wang Yi said that China still hopes to achieve non conflict, non confrontation, mutual respect and win-win cooperation with the United States, but we will firmly safeguard national sovereignty and national dignity, firmly safeguard our legitimate development rights, and firmly uphold the basic norms of international relations. China will not dance with the US side, but it will never allow the US side to act recklessly.
