Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton has shined for his stances on China.
Steve Watson reported that Tom Cotton was championing legislation on March 25, 2020 that would end American dependency on China for pharmaceutical products. Cotton believes this dependency constitutes a major national security threat for American interests.
“Things like antibiotics and ibuprofen and Advil are made in China for the most part. It’s time to bring that manufacturing capacity back to the United States, time to bring a lot more back to the United States from China.” Cotton said in a Fox News interview.
“China unleashed this plague on the world, and there will be a reckoning when we’re on the back side of it.” he asserted.
Along with Wisconsin Congressman Mike Gallagher, Cotton has introduced the “Protecting Our Pharmaceutical Supply Chain From China Act,” which vows to “cut off purchases of drugs with Chinese ingredients no later than 2025.”
Cotton is of the opinion that the “low quality” of such drugs produced in China is a danger to all Americans.
The bill would also mandate “drug companies to label the origins of ingredients in their drugs, so U.S. consumers are better informed of where their medicine comes from and whether it’s likely to be safe.”
Additionally, the legislation would encourage the medical industry to “manufacture in our country again by offering full and immediate expensing of factories, warehouses and capital goods related to the manufacture of drugs and medical devices on American soil.”
Cotton contended that “Emergencies like pandemics and wars break down previously dependable supply chains and relationships as nations start to fend for themselves. It’s sadly clear America gave up the ability to fend for ourselves in basic medicine long ago.”
The Arkansas Senator has been sounding the alarms on China for some time and demanded that the Chinese government demonstrate that the virus did not come from its bioweapons lab in Wuhan according to several sources of speculation.
Back in January, Cotton urged for flights from China into America to be shut down, warning that the Chinese government was lying about the outbreak’s full extent.
Despite some of his neoconservative views on non-threats like Iran, Cotton is on the mark regarding China.
America’s national defense priorities should be 100% centered on China and should consist of ending all Chinese migration to America, stiff tariff policies against the country, and a full-scale remilitarization of Japan to keep the country geopolitically in check.
POLL: Real Clear Politics Shows a Tightening Race in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is going to be one of the most important battleground states in the 2020 election.
Many pundits have described it as a potential “tipping point” state, that could propel both candidates — Donald Trump and Joe Biden — to victory should they win it this election cycle.
According to recent polls, the Pennsylvania race has only tightened down the home stretch. As of October 27, 2020, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden leads Trump 49.6 at 45.8 on the RealClear Politics poll for Pennsylvania.
Back inn July 28, 2020 Biden was leading Trump 49.4 to 43.1. Although the former Vice President still maintains the lead, there is a clear sign that Trump is catching up following a final debate where some of Biden’s weaknesses were exposed following a controversial comment on natural gas.
President Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by 0.4 points in 2016, after polls had failed Democrat presidential candidate Hilary Clinton leading by 1.9 points right before the election. This, along with Trump’s pickups in Michigan and Wisconsin, marked a major breakthrough for Republicans and showed the power of Trump’s America First nationalist message.
Now, we’re back in the home stretch. Biden has already made major gaffes by calling Trump supporters “chumps” and even explicitly calling for the end to regular oil production. Trump must capitalize on these mistakes and re-emphasize his successes against China regarding tariffs.
Pennsylvania voters don’t need to hear about the wonders of tax cuts but rather about the nationalist policy set Trump has to offer on issues of trade, immigration, and natural gas sector production. Trump has spent significant time campaigning in Pennsylvania, knowing full well that this state may determine the outcome of the entire race.
He should be focusing on the Keystone state and other Midwest states he flipped so that he can cruise on to victory by even more comfortable margins that he did in 2016.
