The claims come amid increased aggression from China and worsening relations between Washington and Beijing as U.S. lawmakers continue to support Taiwan’s autonomy from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
China also recently called for a cease-fire between Russia and Ukraine and wants to facilitate peace talks as the war between the two nations goes into its second year.
Scott, a GOP senator from Florida, says it’s time for the U.S. to take a stand against China – demanding that America stops buying from the CCP because it is helping fund their rise as a world superpower.
‘All that Biden does is pacify China,’ Scott alleged during an interview on Cats Roundtable Sunday morning with host John Catsimatidis. ‘I don’t know why he does this.’
‘I don’t know if he’s compromised,’ Scott added of the president. ‘I don’t know what it is, but this is a guy who won’t stand up to dictators around the world.’
Florida Senator Rick Scott alleged that President Joe Biden could be ‘compromised’ by China because he continues to ‘pacify’ the communist nation
Many have called for President Biden to be more tough on China – especially after the U.S. shot down a spy balloon from Beijing earlier this month
Biden’s son Hunter has business ties to China, which is putting even more spotlight on how the president handles the increasingly aggressive Asian nation.
At the time when Biden was still vice president, Hunter was being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars annually to act as ‘consultant’ to help ‘open doors’ by introducing businessmen with links to Beijing to political leaders around the world, Republican Congressman James Comer claimed in a letter last week.
Comer, chairman of the House Oversight committee, is probing Hunter and Biden family ties to the CCP.
‘The government of China [and] the government of Russia have decided to be not our challengers, but our enemies,’ he explained.
Scott demanded: ‘We’ve got to stop ever buying anything, anything, anything made in Communist China or made in Russia.’
‘No American business should do any business – any business – in Communist China or Russia. None!’ he insisted. ‘Every time you buy a Chinese product, or you buy an app, or you use TikTok, the Chinese government makes money off that.’
‘The money always flows to the Chinese government,’ Scott explained. ‘What they are going to do with that money is they’re going to continue to build a military to defeat us and defeat our way of life.’
The allegations from Scott comes as Beijing becomes increasingly aggressive, conducting a series of military drills in the South China Sea
Chinese President Xi Jinping has called for a cease-fire between Russia and Ukraine and wants to facilitate peace talks to help end the war between the two countries. The U.S. has dismissed this as ‘one-sided’ diplomacy
Republicans and national security hawks have been calling on the Biden administration to impose stricter penalties on China after its surveillance scheme was revealed by the U.S. earlier this month when a spy balloon was shot down out of the sky.
China has flown these vehicles, which Beijing claims was just an astray weather balloon, over 40 countries.
The U.S. shot down a balloon over the ocean off the east coast earlier this month and found technology used to collect data and surveil U.S. military operations.
