Sen. Marco Rubio appeared on Thursday’s “Mornings with Maria” (Bartiromo) on Fox Business Network and spend much of his segment blasting the hypocrisy of U.S. corporations that do the bidding of the communist Chinese government at the expense of American workers. And he explained that Washington is filled with politicians who grandstand about China, but do nothing about its influence:
The Chinese Communist Party has developed an expertise. They have refined and really mastered the art of deputizing American corporate class to come to Washington, D.C., and be their lobbyist.
And what they tell him is, hey look, you have 2%, 3%, 5% of the market share, and China’s one and a half billion people. You want to keep it, then go to Washington and get your member of Congress to block it or your key member of Congress to block it.
So this place is full of people that love to talk tough on China, but when the rubber meets the road, they’re not there. And the reason why they’re not there is because someone gets to them and says, hey, this is bad for business. This is not a good thing.
Breitbart further summarized the illuminating segment.
