Vladimir Putin gave a recent statement that was full of doublespeak. I break this statement down.
Venezuela is imploding. Iran, Russia, and China have increased their holdings in the region. America has ignored Latin America for years. Meanwhile, the threat posed by Illegal Immigration to the U.S. increases as instability does. The U.S. cannot ignore Venezuela.
In this 6-part series that I wrote for American Greatness a few weeks back, I argue that America has lost the ability to conduct economic statecraft at a time when our enemies–notably China–have become expert practitioners of this incredible potent tool of statecraft.
