Sen. Rick Scott in Washington Examiner: Communist China Started a New Cold War with United States

Senator Rick Scott wrote an op-ed for the Washington Examiner about the new Cold War with Communist China, and how the United States and every American should start treating China like the adversary it is.

In the op-ed, Senator Rick Scott wrote, “China lies when it uses rhetoric about “peace and security”; no peace-loving country has a similar geopolitical outlook with Iran, a country that proactively undermines security in the Middle East, supports global terror networks, and wants to wipe Israel off the face of the planet.

The reality is that China wants power, world power — and there is a sinister, Soviet-style plan to achieve it.

… As I stated in February at the Hudson Institute, ‘Communist China does not want to join the community of nations so much as it wants to rule it. The result, whether we want to admit it or not, is a new Cold War.’ No debate is needed, and the U.S. must respond appropriately.

Stop buying anything made in China. De-list Chinese companies from stock exchanges. Re-shore the supply chain and support American jobs. Indicate products’ place of origin for online shoppers. Refuse to publish Chinese propaganda in newspapers. Reevaluate relationships with Chinese researchers at universities and hospitals. Cancel travel plans to China. Cut ties with Confucius Institutes at universities. Move the 2022 Olympics Games out of Beijing.

I have been sounding the alarm in the Senate on these issues, and I am thankful the Trump administration is working towards a proactive, strategic approach to combat the Chinese threat. But everyday people can step up now and treat China like the adversary it is."
