This is madness.
Recently on Fox News, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) blasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for complaining about President Trump’s trying to hold China accountable for the spread of the coronavirus.
According to Breitbart, “I would say if you think China is a diversion from the challenges that the United States faces, then you’re not living in reality,” Hawley stated after both Pelosi and Schumer called Trump’s rhetoric about china a diversion. “You need to come back to planet Earth. China is the single-greatest national security threat to this country. More than that, Martha — they’re the single-greatest economic threat. We’ve been losing jobs to China for years. We’ve been losing manufacturing to China for years. Now they’re building up their military, even as they unleash this pandemic on the world. We’ve got to change our relationship with China and the time to do it is right now.”
“We’re just getting started in terms of standing up to them as a nation,” Hawley said. “I can tell you — Beijing needs to understand that the free ride is over. The United States is back. We are going to protect ourselves and rebuild a better world for the 21st century.”
