Economically and part of that is Strengthening ties with our allies in The indo-pacific region specifically Japan South Korea Taiwan Taiwan is our Eighth largest trading partner and if You look at uh International Trade 60 Percent of trade comes through the Taiwan Strait so we need to take this Threat from China very seriously we Would have a major problem economically If China was to invade Taiwan especially Within the semiconductor industry is a Big part of why we are seeking to move Semiconductor production to the United States well listen you know we we have What's happening in Ukraine now we're Looking at China let's hope that your Efforts to deter not set up a war I Don't know that we have the Manpower Resources to fight a war much less two On two fronts let's hope that your Efforts are successful and um and you All come from this trip deterring a Potential War councilman Mike Lawler Thank you appreciate it thank you thank You I'm Steve Ducey I'm Brian Kilmeade and I'm Ainsley Earhart and click here to Subscribe to the Fox News YouTube page To catch our hottest interviews and most Compelling analysis
