Welcome back to another bonus episode of Heritage Explains. This is our last one on China, because next week, we are very excited to bring you a new season of Heritage Explains. And this one will be focused on the crisis at the Southern Border.

On this week’s bonus episode, we feature an interview from the Kevin Roberts Show, a conversation with former professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics, Enes Kanter Freedom. Among other things, his upbringing in his native Turkey, Chinese influence in the NBA, his activism against it, and his hope for America. 

One of the more contentious points currently being debated in foreign policy today is the relationship of the United States to the conflict in between Russia and Ukraine.

What you’re about to hear are remarks from Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri, entitled China and Ukraine: A time for truth, presented here at the Heritage Foundation in February of 2023. In this talk, he argues for a foreign policy that focuses more on Taiwan, and less on Ukraine. 

Welcome to a bonus episode of Heritage Explains! We are looking forward to bringing you a new series starting on June 7, but in the next few weeks, we want to keep delivering you the best content to keep you informed about the important issues facing our country. In keeping with the series we just finished, six episodes on the threat of the Chinese Communist party, we are bringing you some bonus episodes, focusing on parts of the China story that we may have only covered tangentially or what to spend more time on.
