On the PBS 'News Hour' Tuesday evening, GOP candidate Herman Cain showed a lack of foreign policy understanding when asked by host Judy Woodruff about China (video below).

“Yes, they’re a military threat, they’ve indicated that they’re trying to develop nuclear capabilities, so yes, we have to consider them a military threat,” Cain said.

However, the fact is China has had nuclear weapons since 1964.

On Sunday, Cain compared his lack of knowledge on foreign policy knowledge to his lack of knowledge of pizza, when he joined Godfather's Pizza.

On the video from PBS, Cain’s comments on China begin at the 11:35 mark. He also says the sexual harrassment claims against him are "baseless" and still believes that he can win the Republican nomination.
