Supporting the Trump Administration's Dealings with China

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. WATKINS. Madam Speaker, today I rise in support of President Trump and fellow Kansan, Secretary Mike Pompeo, in their dealings with China. This includes closing the consulate in Houston.

The CCP has for decades been using meticulous multidimensional strategies to degrade and undermine American hegemony and democracies around the world.

Chairman Ghee has accelerated these efforts. That is clearly apparent in the CCP's dealings with COVID-19, their mass detention of more than a million Uighurs, and their violation of Hong Kong's sovereignty.

Every action that China takes affects the global economy and security and, more importantly, the lives of Americans.

China's repeated aggression and nefarious actions have proven China cannot be trusted.

Thankfully, we now have an American President and a Secretary of State who won't be treating China with kid gloves and a President unlike any other in history who will be tough on China.
