China should not be allowed to own any such property in the US as a matter of national security.

Smithfield Farms, a huge Chinese owned farm and meat processing conglomerate, received farm bailout money during Trump’s trade war with China. I know the idea was to help pay American employees but did it go to the people on the ground? I’d be curious to see stats on layoffs at the various plants during that time.

it’s all fun and games till Joey six-pack gets fired from his farm equipment repair job because he said something positive about Taiwan.

The fact they foreign entities are allowed near unrestricted access to any real estate is just indicative of the “profits over people” that’s destroying us. I mean we *know* the Chinese government’s interests are adversarial to ours yet we allow them access to *food production* ?? Why? Because “FrEe MaRkEt!”?

When are they going to crack down on China buying up politicians?
