Delaware Senate Republican candidate Lauren Witzke told Breitbart News Saturday that former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) are “brought and paid for by China.”
Witzke said that she is running to unseat Sen. Coons on an America First platform in 2020, which includes a “ten-year moratorium on all immigration” and bringing back manufacturing to the United States.
Witzke charged that Coons and Biden have sold out to the Chinese for years and are complicit in outsourcing American manufacturing the Chinese Communist Party.
Witzke told Breitbart News Saturday host Matthew Boyle that Biden “is a total sellout for the Communist Chinese, who has a total cheap labor market chokehold. Biden and Coons are the perfect examples of Democrat politicians who pretend to care about the American worker, but are totally owned and bought and paid for by China, and you can count on that. Joe Biden, as far back as 2001, was outsourcing American manufacturing jobs to China. Right now, we’re in a crisis where Americans are out of work, and we should never be in this position. However, we found ourselves in this position, and we’ve outsourced a lot of our jobs. China is responsible for 97 percent of our pharmaceutical and our PPE [personal protective equipment].”
The Delaware Senate Republican said that China lied about how deadly the coronavirus could impact the world.
“It was pretty obvious that China was not transparent from the beginning about this virus, they still allowed migration out of the country,” Witzke said. “They still allowed travel out of the country, and they knew first-hand how bad this was, and they allowed it to spread and become a global pandemic, and I agree that China needs to be held responsible for this.”
Witzke said that “China needs to be punished” for the spread of the coronavirus, which would include more tariffs and cutting off access to American visa programs.
