Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) appeared on the Guy Benson Radio Show, where he asserted his very concise opinion on trade with China: “No American should ever buy one product ever made from communist China.”
Benson asked Sen. Scott about the new report that German intelligence corroborated American intelligence in stating that the Chinese government was involved in a cover-up with the World Health Organization (WHO) to keep the real spread of the COVID-19 virus under wraps from the rest of the world.
Here are excerpts of the interview:
Sen. Scott: China Lied the WHO help them. Thousands of people died. Those are the facts. So the WHO is basically they parroted whatever communist China information they wanted out there. So I’m on Homeland Security Committee in the Senate. I am leading the investigation of the W.H.O.. We’re going to find out what are the facts. Did they have a pandemic plan? If they had it, which I can’t imagine they didn’t. Did they follow it? When did they find information? When did they find out information? And did they tell us? So it it sure appears is that the WHO is just a propaganda arm for the Communist Party. And Communist China knew all these things. And intensely, we, you know, basically put this thing out in the world, whether it was intentional that they that it came out of a lab or came out of a wet market. Well, we do know is they lied. They covered up. And guess what? People have died all over the world and they killed the economy all over the world. So no American should ever buy one product ever made from communist China. They are not our friend. They’re not a competitor. They’re clearly an adversary.
Guy Benson: I would just add that from this story about the German intelligence, their organization, the BND, estimated that China’s action to conceal information that we just talked about resulted in the loss of four to six weeks in the fight against Cauvin, 19 month to a month and a half. That’s very valuable time. Senator, let me just follow up what you just said, though, before we move on to other topics. You think that no Americans should ever buy any product made in China.
Sen. Scott :”Never. We should stop. We should buy American products. It’s going to help American jobs. But we need to understand what communist China is. It is run by the Communist Party. They act in the best interest, the Communist Party. They steal our jobs. They steal our technology. They take they put people in prison for the religion…”
Scott has been on the frontlines in the U.S. Senate railing against Communist China.
