Michael Auslin and John Yoo welcome Congressman Mike Gallagher (R-Wis.) to the podcast. Gallagher joined the Marine Corps after graduating from college and deployed to Iraq twice. A recipient of advanced degrees in intelligence and international relations, Gallagher served as a staffer on the foreign relations committee, an advisor to Governor Scott Walker, and won election to Wisconsin’s eighth district in 2016. A member of a new congressional task force on China, Gallagher shares his thoughts on America’s bipartisan change in policy toward China, Beijing’s new aggressiveness abroad, and what the U.S. can do to respond to Hong Kong, the South China Seas, and the coronavirus outbreak.

    Gives me hope to have good, smart guys like this in Congress. Great – and important – discussion. I agree that Xi is the moving factor in recent actions regarding Taiwan, Hong Kong, South China Seas, etc. I think he is motivated not only by his legacy but by his wanting a legacy for the CCP. He and the CCP are determined that China will not go the way of the Soviet Union.
