Buchanan Blasts ‘Stupidity of the Republican Party’ On China

Columnist Pat Buchanan criticized “the stupidity of the Republican Party” on trade with China during a discussion of Chinese counterfeiting on Friday’s “McLaughlin Group.”

Buchanan stated, “This reflects, John, the stupidity of the Republican Party, which is responsible for MFN, opening up China, all of these trade deals. They are dumping this garbage counterfeit in the United States, because as Ronald Reagan said, they’re Communists, and they reserve to themselves the right to lie, cheat and steal. That’s who you’re dealing with. It’s not a partner like Canada or Great Britain.”
