Joe Sestak: China is a threat by holding so much of our reserves

China was mentioned as a source of national security concern when the candidates were asked about the nature of the threats facing the US. Sestak replied "It is actually our economic security. China."

"They hold so much of our reserves. If they dumped them on the stock market--imagine what would happen. Remember, it really is a strong economy that undergirds our military. That undergirds our education, that undergirds our health system," said Sestak.
