“John Kerry is the customer of the year for Chinese concentration camps”

Senator Ted Cruz has accused the Biden administration of funding Chinese concentration camps, bowing to China’s use of slave labor, and described Biden’s climate czar John Kerry as the Communist state’s “customer of the year.”
In an appearance on Fox News, Cruz noted “Joe Biden has shown weakness to China,” adding “I introduced an amendment on the floor of the Senate to prohibit the Biden administration from importing any goods, and in particular electric vehicles or solar panels, made with slave labor in concentration camps in China. Every single Democrat except Joe Manchin voted against that.”

Cruz further urged that Kerry and Biden “ought to be ashamed,” noting “We are literally spending hundreds of millions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer money to fund the concentration camps where over a million Uyghurs are in prison.”
Cruz continued, “I think we need strength and clarity to stand up to China, to for calling them out for their murder, for their torture, for concentration camps, for their lying, for their theft of intellectual property, for their espionage, for their military aggression, and… for their responsibility, their culpability for COVID-19.”
“I’ve introduced over a dozen different pieces of legislation taking on China. Where are the Democrats? The Democrats are beholden to the big money interests in their party that need Chinese markets to stay in business,” the Senator further proclaimed.
This week, the Biden administration also announced that the U.S. will not boycott the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics over the country’s atrocities against the Uyghur population.
Instead, Jen Psaki noted that the Biden administration is refusing to send an official delegation to the games “to send a message” that “egregious human rights abuses and atrocities” won’t be tolerated.

While some took issue with the decision, Senator Cruz said last month that it would be better to send U.S. athletes to the games to “kick their commie a**es.”
