China has become a hot topic among presidential hopefuls.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) on Friday criticized former United Nation Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R-S.C.) for her record on China. He accused her of rolling out the “red carpet” for Beijing.

“Her record is writing the Chinese ambassador love letters saying, like, how great a friend China is. No, they’re not a friend. They are an adversary,” Mr. DeSantis said.

Ms. Haley denies those accusations. She said she views China “as an enemy” and that “China’s been practically preparing for war with us for years.”

Other than Mr. DeSantis and Ms. Haley, presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is also talking tough on China. He says that, communist China is America’s real adversary and that this is the real issue.
