Michael Pillsbury, author of the "The Hundred-Year Marathon: China's Secret Strategy to Replace America as the Global Superpower," told Fox News Digital that the question is what this announcement means in terms of how the FBI and U.S. states' attorneys interpret it.
In 1975, Pillsbury published an article in the magazine Foreign Policy — in essence, a declassified version of his military research and memos to the government — calling for Washington to “reject the current blind public policy of blanket prohibition of defence technology transfer and intelligence sharing with Peking [Beijing]”.
"This is a highly dangerous thing for everybody else but for Americans in particular - giving up our global primacy - a lot of Americans simply won't do it. We'd fight rather than do it," Pillsbury told the audience.
“That period in time was amateur hour with people who did not know Trump or had never met with Trump before in their lives attempting to get into the Oval Office to get authorized to do investigations that the rest of the government had examined and had said there was no evidence for,” said Michael Pillsbury, an informal adviser to Trump at the time.
"China is closing in on us. They’re up to about 75%, or even 80% of the size of our economy already, and the way they're doing this is better technology that they developed and also that they steal," China expert Michael Pillsbury told Fox News.
Michael Pillsbury, an informal Trump adviser, told the Post he saw the biggest impact from Dobbs, whose show was canceled last February. Trump began embracing lawyer Sidney Powell and other election fabulists after watching them on Dobbs' show, and he was inclined to believe their patently false claims in part because he was seeing on TV, he added.
Mr. Pillsbury, a prolific author and analyst who advised in some capacity every president since Richard Nixon, says the U.S. and China are so economically intertwined that the prospect of a major clash remains low.
