Even before the outbreak of COVID-19, China served as an irresponsible global actor that threatened American interests and values world-wide. The rise of China is the most persistent and consequential challenge that will confront the United States for the next several decades.

From the surveillance of American athletes and their sway in Hollywood to their military capabilities, China’s presence is one that our nation can ill-afford to underestimate.

In the first episode of The Kevin Roberts Show, Senator Tom Cotton and Heritage’s very own Dean Cheng weigh in to help break down how what their growing influence means for America and the rest of the world—and what we need to do to hold China accountable and maintain freedom.


Each episode of The Kevin Roberts Show is a weekly rallying cry for lovers of freedom everywhere, packed with Dr. Roberts’ analysis on the issues of the day and deep conversations with the movers and shakers of American politics and culture. And all of it backed by the academic excellence of The Heritage Foundation.

As a former college professor and current president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s most influential policy organization, Dr. Roberts has spent his career learning, educating, and taking decisive action for a brighter America. He believes that conservatives have every reason to be hopeful, because conservative ideas are ideas that work. It’s time to go on offense.
