Nikki Haley, the former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. and a 2024 Republican presidential candidate, raised alarm bells on China Wednesday, saying the U.S. “enemy” has already “infiltrated” the country.

Haley, who has regularly criticized the Biden administration and former President Donald Trump for their handling of the China threat, joined former Michigan Republican gubernatorial candidate Tudor Dixon on her podcast Wednesday to discuss multiple issues from the border crisis to foreign policy. Dixon asked the presidential candidate what she thought of President Joe Biden saying last week that he wanted to “see China succeed economically.”

“China is an enemy,” Haley said. “They’ve been preparing for war with us for years. It is unbelievable to me how weak in the knees Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are when it comes to China. This is not a country [that] just talks about not liking America — this is a country that has already infiltrated America.”


The former South Carolina governor told Dixon that China is already threatening the U.S. homeland by buying up U.S. land, putting millions of dollars into American universities, and stealing research while spreading Chinese propaganda. Haley also pointed out the Chinese Communist Party’s role in the American fentanyl crisis that killed an estimated 70,000 Americans in 2021 alone.

“China is not playing. The problem is Joe Biden is asleep at the wheel, and [Vice] President Kamala Harris won’t even know what to do this” Haley said. “We need to wake up and see [China] for the enemy that they are.” 

During her conversation with Dixon, Haley also criticized U.S. aid to foreign countries, such as Pakistan and Iraq, that fundamentally oppose American values and interests. Haley supports continued U.S. aid to Ukraine during its war against Russia, believing it’s in America’s best interest to fight for Ukrainians’ freedom, but she told Dixon she also wants the U.S. “to quit trying to buy friends” and “quit trying to pay off enemies.”

Earlier this month, Haley hit Biden and Trump on another foreign policy issue when she said Biden was too weak and Trump was too friendly toward U.S. nemesis North Korea. Her comments came as news of a meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jon Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin had just broken. The two leaders held a summit Wednesday where they discussed military cooperation.


“The Kim-Putin partnership is another sign that the dictators of the world are united,” Haley said in a statement Tuesday. “The tyrants who lead China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea hate America and our values. We must take their threats seriously. Neither Joe Biden’s weakness nor Donald Trump’s friendliness to Kim have changed North Korea’s direction for the better. These dictators only understand strength.”
