Thousands of Chinese scholars were forced to leave the United States after the Trump administration made another move. US media:self-destruct the Great Wall
In recent years, the United States has continuously attacked my country, first focusing on Huawei 5G, DJI drones, Hikvision security equipment, etc., and fought a”technical sanctions war.” After that, the United States made another move, but this time it was aimed at talents, mainly for the objects, including Chinese experts, scholars or students studying in the United States.
Nowadays, in the context of the so-called crackdown on technology theft by the US government, talents have been leaving the United States one after another. According to the latest news from Reuters, more than 1,000 Chinese researchers have abandoned the United States and chose to return to China or go to other European countries to seek development. In this regard, many American media have described this approach of the Trump administration as”self-destructing the Great Wall.”
Relevant data show that the United States is using”fighting technology theft” In the name of, the visas of more than 1,000 Chinese scholars were revoked, and the reason given was that they were suspected of stealing or misappropriating certain research results belonging to the United States. In addition to the more than 1,000 Chinese researchers whose visas were revoked by the United States in September, a total of more than 2,000 Chinese scholars have become”targets” of the US government.
In addition, in the area of international students, from April to September this year, only 808 Chinese students were able to successfully obtain F-1 student visas in the United States, while the United States issued more visas to Chinese students last year There are 90,410 sheets. A year has passed, but the contrast between before and after is very large. This is mainly due to the impact of the epidemic and the Trump administration’s mentality to prevent Chinese students from studying abroad. It wants to use visa refusal to completely block Chinese scholars and students from the United States. outer.
But not all Americans have lost their minds. Some people of insight in the United States are worried about this. For example, Schmidt, the chairman of the US Artificial Intelligence Security Council, bluntly stated that the US needs scholars and graduate students from China because they are very good. If they blindly squeeze them out of the US technology research chain, it will only cause major losses to US interests.
Not only Schmidt, but also Brown, who is in charge of the Innovation Experiment Group of the Department of Defense, also expressed similar views. If the United States wants to attract global talents, it should keep as many students as possible. This also includes Chinese students. And he said that every year, 25%of American science and engineering graduates are Chinese citizens. If they were turned away, it would be a loss for the United States. Why did the Trump administration continue to prevent more Chinese students from studying in the U.S. even after facing outright opposition from American scholars and business people from all walks of life, and even expelled those Chinese scholars who have worked and lived in the U.S. for a long time? Mainly based on several reasons.
The reason why the United States can do this The root cause is not simply due to the Trump administration’s tough stance on China, but that the United States is becoming more and more”conservative” and”closed.” Even this kind of”conservative” and”closed” has reached a neurotic situation, and it will be nothing if touched. This state is not limited to the Trump administration, but spreads across the United States and affects the current American society. This is also the reason why”American hegemony” and”unilateralism” have emerged in the United States. If it were 20 or 30 years ago, would the United States get a”unilateralist” like Trump to be elected president? The answer is obviously impossible. Therefore, Trump’s approach reflects the changes in American society to a certain extent.
Reason two, the Trump administration’s treatment of Chinese scholars and students The strong”precautionary heart” reveals the inner anxiety of the United States. The United States doesn’t know how to stop China’s development and rise, so it is more like a medical emergency, but all”tricks” that can be tried must be used. This is not based on results, but based on comforting oneself and making oneself look stronger, so as to alleviate the anxiety within the United States. Just like a trade war, it did not achieve the goal of curbing China’s exports to the United States and narrowing the trade surplus. On the contrary, it caused heavy losses for US companies and the American people were burdened by the increased costs brought about by the trade war.
The third reason is to start with Chinese scholars, which seems to be In order to prevent Chinese scholars or students from”misappropriating” American achievements, what actually stands behind is that the United States is launching a”talent war” and a”cultural war” against China. With the increase of China’s influence, it is the influence of Chinese culture on American society. This kind of cultural identity and cultural attraction also makes some Americans nervous. Through the construction of Chinese students studying in the United States, coupled with driving out Chinese scholars, it is conducive to the Trump administration to transform Chinese scholars and Chinese culture into a way that is compatible with American society and The antagonism of American culture continues to”defame” my country’s image while highlighting the superiority of American culture and technology.
Looking at everything, in the final analysis, in one sentence, the United States Hua suppresses, no matter if the target is talents, technology companies or other fields. The essence exposed is the same, that is, the guilty conscience of the United States, and the concealment behind it is the weakness of the United States’ national strength. This is the reason why the United States has become conservative. The stronger they are externally, the more uneasy and fearful their hearts will be. In the face of such an opponent, what our country needs is the patience and the determination to rise slowly.
