In the wake of South China Sea tensions between U.S. and China, a video of presidential candidate Carly Fiorina being highly critical of the Chinese has surfaced. In the video, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO said the Chinese are stealing ideas from Americans and argued that U.S. students should not be pressed to think like their Chinese counterparts.
The Chinese can’t innovate
Arguing against the Common Core education policy during the Caffeinated Thoughts political vlogger in Iowa held in January this year, Fiorina said the Chinese are “not terribly imaginative.” She argued that while the Chinese can ace tests, they are not imaginative, entrepreneurial or simply innovative.
“I have been doing business in China for decades, and I will tell you that yeah, the Chinese can take a test, but what they can’t do is innovate. They are not terribly imaginative. They’re not entrepreneurial, they don’t innovate, that is why they are stealing our intellectual property,” Fiorina said in the video first shared by BuzzFeed.
She said that imparting knowledge on innovation, risk-taking and imagination “are things that are distinctly American and we can’t lose them.”
Fiorina has always highlighted her experience in doing business internationally as her ultimate credential for her foreign policy. BuzzFeed noted that Fiorina has always talked about how she “met with more world leaders today than anyone else running for president, with the exception of Hillary Clinton.”

Fiorina a great model for shy girls
Fiorina “would be such a great model for my little girl,” a Romanian mother said after hearing her speech at the Southern republican Leadership Conference on Saturday. She said the GOP presidential candidate is not afraid to say what’s on her mind.
“She is really bold — I was really shy as a child — and Ms. Fiorina would be such a great model for my little girl.”
Fiorina said her flare for speaking has been greatly honed in her career as a CEO.
“I don’t care whether you’re looking at a balance sheet or whether you’re trying to give a speech. . . . What’s essential to convey so that people are motivated to move in the right direction?” Fiorina told National Review.
