Cruz: People On Both Sides Of The Aisle Are Waking Up To The Danger From Communist China

Sen. Ted Cruz told CBS’s Margaret Brennan on “Face the Nation” that since the coronavirus pandemic, “people have woken up on both sides of the aisle to just how dangerous communist China is and their lies.”

MARGARET BRENNAN: I just want to quickly get you on China because I’m running out of time here. I know you care passionately about what happened in Houston with shuttering that consulate. What did you learn, and will more consulates be closed?

SEN. CRUZ: Well, they may well be closed. That consulate was closed because it had been engaged- engaged in espionage. It had been engaged in intellectual property theft. They use it as a base for spying in Houston and throughout the Southwest. And for a long time, I have made the case that China poses the greatest geopolitical threat to the United States for the next century. In fact, the last time I did this show was from Hong Kong in October.

MARGARET BRENNAN: Yes.

SEN. CRUZ: I traveled there. I met with the protesters. There were two million protesters in the street. And you’ll recall, Margaret, I dressed in all black in solidarity with the protesters that were standing up to Beijing and to communist China. And one of the most, in fact, the most significant foreign policy consequence of this pandemic is people are understanding the threat China poses. And in particular, this virus originated because of communist China’s deliberate cover-up. They arrested, they silenced the heroic Chinese whistleblowers that tried to stop this at the outset.

MARGARET BRENNAN: Yes.

SEN. CRUZ: And because of that, over 600,000 people are dead, because the Chinese communist government lied. And Margaret, you know, last year when I said that, I didn’t have a lot of allies in Washington, both Republicans and Democrats–

MARGARET BRENNAN: Yeah, you didn’t have the White House on board with you then. They are now.

SEN. CRUZ: They- they are now. People have woken up on both sides of the aisle to just how dangerous communist China is and their lies are taking away people’s lives.
