Here’s what she said…
Recently on Fox’s “The Fox Report,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) demanded that China be held accountable for the spread of the coronavirus and warned that the US was “on a Cold War footing” with China.
According to Breitbart, “They have been hacking in, stealing intellectual property, and getting away with it for decades. This time, they’ve been caught. And it is so important that we follow through with holding them accountable,” Blackburn warned.
“Look, we are really on a Cold War footing when it comes to dealing with China,” she went on to say. “This is why we have to step forward — the Stop COVID Act that Senator McSally, Senator Daines, Rep. Gooden and I have filed, that is a way for American citizens to have their day in court and to get some restitution, if you will, for what has been done in loss of life and livelihood. … Another thing, China is big in debt diplomacy. So, they own and hold a lot of our debt — over $1 trillion. When that payment comes due, maybe we need to go negotiate that payment. Also, looking forward at manufacturing, bringing our supply chain back — this is something that has growing bipartisan support.”
Blackburn added, “America should not back down.”
