This weekend, Republican presidential candidates made their way to the Hawkeye State for the annual Iowa State Fair. Although many candidates seized the opportunity to sit down with Governor Kim Reynolds for a ‘Fairside Chat’ to share their platform with voters, former President Trump declined a sit down with her. Other candidates such as Miami Mayor Francis Suarez are using the event as a way to garner more support ahead of the first presidential debate later this month. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA) discusses how the candidates’ campaigns have evolved over the months and explain the importance of winning over voters in the first caucus state.

President Biden signed an executive order this past week that will limit American investments in Chinese technology. The Biden Administration believes that the order will stifle China from enriching its military with the use of the United States’ dollars, and promote domestic advancement in the fields of semiconductor manufacturing and advanced computing. Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) joins to discuss the impacts the executive order may have on foreign relations with China, the government’s role in regulating private corporations, and how China may react to the policy decision.
