President Joe Biden has changed his mind in regard to the threat Communist China poses American, having first dismissed the Republican claim, but has now backtracked with his now-infamous China will ‘eat our lunch’ remark.
President Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed the president’s sentiments, and in the U.S. Senate, Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott have been sounding the alarm over the glaring existential threat America faces from the Chinese.
Sen. Scott has once again called on the U.S. Olympic Committee to“move the 2022 Olympics out of Beijing because of the hostile actions the Chinese government has made against American interests.
Scott says that now that Secretary Blinkin “agrees that Communist China is an adversary and our biggest geopolitical challenge,” he should join his “call to move the 2022 Beijing games.
“Since @SecBlinkenn agrees that Communist China is an adversary and our biggest geopolitical challenge – will he commit to stand against China’s human rights abuses and join my call to move the 2022 Olympics out of Beijing?
During his first speech as Secretary of State, Blinken acknowledged what everyone, including President Biden, knew —China is a threat to the U.S.
“China is the only country with the economic, diplomatic, military, and technological power to seriously challenge the stable and open international system, all the rules, values and relationships that make the world work the way we want it to because it ultimately serves the interests and reflects the values of the American people,” said Blinken.
“Our relationship with China will be competitive when it should be, collaborative when it can be, adversarial when it must be,” he added.
