Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement regarding Xi Jinping’s opening address at the Chinese Communist Party’s 20th Party Congress.

“Xi Jinping stated today that unification with Taiwan ‘must…and…can, without doubt, be realized.’ Just days after the release of Biden administration’s security strategy, which explicitly labeled climate change as our greatest existential threat, the Chinese Communist Party is again making clear that it is the single greatest threat to our national interests. We desperately need a sense of urgency to put hard power in Xi’s path before it is too late. This starts with providing Taiwan with security assistance and moving them to the front of the FMS line, maxing out munitions production, and augmenting and dispersing American hard power forward in the region”
