Jon Huntsman: China is 'not an ally of the United States'

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman–a former U.S. ambassador to China–said that nation's "not an ally" of the United States. "There's a very competitive relationship there."

Monday on OutFront, former U.S. vice president Dick Cheney argued that President Obama failed to act decisively on the downed drone–choosing not to use an air strike or other means to destroy the drone before its anti-radar technology to the Iranians–or the Chinese, even the Russians.

Huntsman also said he "can't live with" a nuclear Iran and would do everything in his power as president to keep the country from getting the bomb.
