South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem has been vocal about her stance on the threat of China, and recently expressed her opinion on the matter during a conversation with Fox News host Sean Hannity. Noem has taken steps to ban Chinese entities from buying land in South Dakota, as well as banning the Chinese-owned social media app TikTok on state devices. She believes that China is trying to gain ownership of South Dakota’s number one industry, farming, for nefarious purposes.

Noem has been involved in food security policy for over 20 years, and is determined to ensure that the land stays under the United States’ control. She stated that America deserves a president who loves the country, defends it, and doesn’t act like a “dimwit” in front of the world.
In response to Noem’s comments, President Joe Biden took a surprise trip to Ukraine this week. Biden declared that “Kyiv stands” and “democracy stands” after meeting with Ukrainian President Zelenskyy at Mariinsky Palace. Biden has given Ukraine more than $100 billion in security and humanitarian aid, but there is still room for failure if the money ends up in corrupt leaders’ hands. If Russia gets tired of U.S. indirect involvement, they could decide to use a nuclear weapon and cause mass destruction in Ukraine or in the United States.
Biden’s decision to visit Ukraine instead of East Palestine, Ohio has been met with criticism. East Palestine Mayor Trent Conaway called Biden’s visit to Ukraine “the biggest slap in the face” that showed “he doesn’t care about us.” Two weeks ago, a train derailed in East Palestine and officials burned toxic chemicals to avoid having them cause an explosion.
