In light of China perpetrating cybersecurity breaches against U.S. government agencies, Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) is warning that incoming President Biden (D) would only make the United States an easier target for China and Russia to steal from.
Today, Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R), the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, notified the public that China had attempted to spy on the United States. He also informed that a hearing would follow with the incoming Congress to investigate the nature of this attack.
Now, Senator Scott, the former Governor of Florida, and a lawmaker that has criticized China in the past questioned what a President Biden would mean for the American people when it comes to China.
On social media, Scott warned about the danger that a Biden administration poses, expressing that “his foreign policy nominees have a tired way of thinking about China, one that’s allowed the CCP to steal our tech & jobs, & threaten our standing in the world.
“If we care about the future of our country & human rights, we must take on Communist China,” Scott asserted.

Both Senators Scott and Rubio have been weary of Biden's potential China emissaries, questioning their fortitude to stand up to the Chinese regime as many of them are Obama-Biden retreads that have already allowed China to steal from the U.S.
This also marks the first week that Republican leadership, namely Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) acknowledged Vice President Biden as the President-elect.
The United States has recently endured hacks from Russia. The hacks infiltrated three government agencies, which include the Treasury Department, the Commerce Department, and the Department of Homeland Security.
