Tuesday, Ted Cruz released an op-ed in the Washington Post about the U.S. relationship with North Korea that extensively cited research done by The Heritage Foundation.
In the op-ed Cruz stated:
President Trump’s November decision to designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism — in response to legislation I introduced that passed in Congress last year — was more than just a symbolic move.
The administration has not only plugged holes in America’s sanctions regime against Pyongyang, but it has also established a decisive break from the policy failures of past administrations. It’s now time to seize the initiative, put Kim Jong Un on his heels and set conditions on America’s terms.
The Heritage report that Cruz cited dealt with imposing sanctions on North Korea.
One way your conservative principles continue to be shared through Heritage is by experts testifying before Congress on pressing issues such as the threat of China’s military.
This week was no exception as Dean Cheng, senior research fellow in Heritage’s Asian Studies Center, testified before the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities surrounding China’s pursuit of emerging and exponential military technology.

Do you agree with Cheng’s analysis of the threat China poses?
