Marco Rubio: It is clear that our economy and our businesses have become “dependent” on China
Florida Senator Marco Rubio on Wednesday joined the “Special Report” to sound the alarm over the growing “control” China has over US businesses.
RUBIO SAYS SINGLE FINANCIAL DISTRIBUTION TO BLOCK AMERICAN WAR WITH CHINA IN TAIWAN
MARC RUBIO: But the other thing that there is evidence here that is pretty clear is how dependent our economy has become on China. When I say our economy, it’s the things we buy in stores, but it’s also our businesses.
I mean, we have big, very influential and powerful organizations in our country and business sector that depend on Chinese market access and production in China for their results. I mean, it’s too precious for them now to be in danger. And I think that’s true for the National Basketball Association. I think this has been true for Nike, for Apple and many others and that includes, I imagine, NBC with the coverage of the Olympics as well. I mean, if their coverage gets out of bounds, they could very well be banned from sending reporters there to cover a sports competition.
So I think what we see here shows how intimately they are linked to our economy and how much control it gives them over what we can see, watch, buy, how much we pay for things and what are our businesses ready to say.
