Trump-endorsed GOP candidate says Chinese students should be banned from studying in the US [View all]

A Republican primary candidate for the US Senate who is endorsed by President Donald Trump suggested Chinese students studying in the country should be banned from studying "hard sciences," and should only be allowed to learn about "freedom and individual liberty," according to video footage obtained by Insider.

Bryant "Corky" Messner, a Republican primary candidate running for Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen's seat in New Hampshire, echoed much of the talking points originating out of the Trump administration during a GOP meeting in Westmoreland on Tuesday.

"I think President Trump's done a good job changing that relationship starting with the trade negotiations and now ... that whole dynamic's changed," Messner said at the meeting. "But make no mistake about it. The Chinese Communist Party is bound to determined to be the leading economic and military power of the world, and we can no longer be the research and development arm for the Chinese Communist Party."

Messner also scrutinized an estimated 370,000 students from China who were studying in the US in the 2018-2019 academic year. The University of Southern California hosts the most number of college-level students from China, followed by schools within the University of California system including UCLA, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, and UC San Diego, according to The Los Angeles Times.
