Tom Cotton: US Should Ban Chinese Students Studying Science

In an exclusive interview with Fox News, Tom Cotton advised the government of the United States of America should ban Chinese students from learning science while they are in America. He doubts that Beijing is trying to steal the vaccine of COVID-19 from America. If China is hiding the vaccine for coronavirus, then it might turn out to be a significant issue for Chinese people, and it could lead to a boycott of China by almost every affected country.

Ban Chinese Student From Studying Science in the US: Tom Cotton

“In the middle of a pandemic, what’s the most valuable intellectual property in the world? It’s the research that our great laboratories and life science companies are doing on prophylactic drugs, therapeutic drugs, and ultimately a vaccine,” Cotton of Arkansas said on Fox News.’

“So I have little doubt that the Chinese intelligence services are actively trying to steal America’s intellectual property as it relates to the virus that they unleashed on the world, because, of course, they want to be the country that claims credit for finding those drugs or finding a vaccine, and then uses it as leverage against the rest of the world,” the senator continued.

He told host Maria Bartiromo that he believes it’s a “scandal” that US educational institutions have trained “so many of the Chinese Communist Party’s brightest minds” to return home and steal US jobs and “design weapons and other devices that can be used against the American people.”

“So I think we need to take a tough look at the visas that we give the Chinese nationals to come to the United States to study, especially at the post-graduate level in advanced scientific and technological fields,” he said.

“If Chinese students want to come here and study Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers, that’s what they need to learn from America. They don’t need to learn quantum computing and artificial intelligence from America.”

Cotton is among several lawmakers who have accused China of downplaying the severity of the coronavirus after first reporting cases of it last December in the city of Wuhan.

Cotton said the Chinese Communist Party was “both criminally negligent and incompetent” in the early stages of how it reacted to the outbreak and later “deliberately malevolent in the way they responded to this virus, for their people and the world.”

More than Two Lakh Lives has been affected by the novel Coronavirus, and still, it has not come to an end.
