A congressional China task force lost its Democratic members earlier this year. But the GOP is sticking with the House China task force. It’s designed to set priorities, coordinate legislation, and reorient Congress’s approach toward Beijing in the wake of the coronavirus.

Rep. Michael McCaul, the leader of the new task force, joined the podcast to explain how Congress is addressing threats posed by the Chinese Communist Party. He also talks about why the Democrats backed out of the project and how the World Health Organization and other international bodies susceptible to Chinese influence must change.

Rep. McCaul is currently serving his eighth term representing Texas’ 10th District in Congress. He is Republican Leader of the Foreign Affairs Committee and the former Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security.
