Rep. Buck Warns, World Leaders Need To Stand With Trump To Hold China Accountable

Listen to “Rep. Buck: Republicans need to stop acting like Democrats” on Spreaker.

The outbreak of the novel coronavirus emanating from Wuhan, China was a breaking point for the Trump administration to lay down the hammer even harder on the communist regime. However, the Chinese Communist government did everything it could to cover up the mess from the start putting the world at risk and causing the global economy to spiral out of control.

Rep. Ken Buck, R-CO, has been tough on China. It’s not always an easy position to be in as a member of Congress when big tech and other companies manufacture a large amount of their product in the communist country.

During Monday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Podcast,” he explained why apps like TikTok are dangerous and expose the simple tools China’s government uses to spy on Americans. However, until the rest of the world agrees to hold China accountable, there won’t be real change, Buck said.

He explained, “Their espionage, their really disregard for the rule of law in In trade policy, and when we get the world to a point where there is a consensus that we need to hold China accountable, I believe they’ll change. But up until that point they won’t.”

“While I don’t think they plan on a pandemic that would impact the United States the way it is, I do think that out of their, the values that they have, and the values that are just contrary to the rest of the world, we have a very serious situation and we need to address it,” he told Carter.

Buck’s statements fall in line with President Trump‘s policy on the CCP. He has been warning about China for decades, even prior to his term in office.

It is the reason he has focused so stringently on renegotiating trade deals with Beijing. The outbreak only reenforced those concerns and highlighted America’s severe national security flaws regarding the manufacturing of medicines and medical protective personal equipment.

Now, Trump is working to not just isolate China economically, but also ending the communist regimes espionage attempts.

In recent days, the President has made suggestions he’s going to ban Chinese-owned “TikTok,” a social media application where users make short videos.

Many government employees have already been banned from downloading the application onto their government phones over concerns the program is used as a tool for Chinese espionage.

“China is obviously an adversary of the United States and of the West and of our values,” Buck said. “And the Chinese government uses simple apps like TikTok, as an espionage tool. And we have to make sure we understand that they’re never going to give us the information we need to help the American people when it comes to a disease like COVID-19.”

He continued, “They’re not going to be transparent in anything in China because that’s just not a value they have. And it’s time that the western Europeans stand up and help President Trump isolate China on their horrible economic practices.”

China’s government believes in everything counter to what the majority of the free world believes, making it all the more critical for the world to take notice and join forces with the U.S., Buck added.

Taiwan President Confirms US Troops Are In The Country To Help Protect Against China

During a CNN interview on Wednesday, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen confirmed that U.S. troops were on the ground in Taiwan to assist in strengthening the country’s defenses as the threat from China is “increasing every day.”

Tsai told CNN’s Will Ripley that the situation has gone south in recent years as “China’s plan towards the region” has become “very different.”

“That plan includes war threats over Taiwan, clashes with Japan and the East China Sea and militarizing manmade islands in the South China Sea, posing a direct challenge to seven decades of U.S. military supremacy in the Indo-Pacific,” Ripley said. “In response, the U.S. ramped up arms sales to Taiwan, selling the island $5 billion in weapons last year. President Tsai confirms exclusively to CNN, U.S. support goes beyond selling weapons. Does that support include sending some U.S. service members to help train Taiwanese troops?”

“Well, yes,” Tsai responded. “We have a wide range of cooperation with the U.S., aiming at increasing our defense capability.”

Later in the interview, Ripley asked, “Do you have faith that the United States would defend Taiwan if the Mainland were to try to move on Taiwan?”

“I do have faith, and given the long-term relationship that we have the U.S. and also the support the people of the U.S., as well as the Congress, and the administration has been very helpful,” Tsai said, later adding that Taiwan needs to “expedite our military reform so that we have the ability to defend ourselves. And given the size of Taiwan compared to the size of [China], developing asymmetric capability is the key for us.”

Tsai’s comments come a few weeks after China sent over 150 military planes into Taiwanese air space, the largest incursion ever by the Communist country.

“The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that,” Taiwan Foreign Minister Joseph Wu told ABC Australia in response to China’s aggression.

“If China is going to launch a war against Taiwan we will fight to the end, and that is our commitment. I’m sure that if China is going to launch an attack against Taiwan, I think they are going to suffer tremendously as well.”
