(TheRedWire.com) – Entrepreneur and GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy argued that should he win the White House, he would make radical changes to the relations between the U.S. and China.
During a conversation with Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds on Saturday during the Iowa State Fair, Ramaswamy claimed that if elected, he would sign a “Declaration of Independence” from the communist country. As he pointed out, it was impossible for the U.S. to depend on their enemy to sustain their modern way of living. He added that they had never before been dependent on the USSR for their clothing or phones, yet now China is necessary for sustaining Americans’ lives.
As he pointed out, this was not sustainable in the long run as they were essentially in a codependent relationship, and these relationships never ended well. He further pointed out that the sooner they stopped this relationship, the better it would be for the U.S.
He further pointed out that China played an important role in the United States’ opioid epidemic, which he dubbed a “modern Opium War.” Chinese manufacturers create some of the precursors that are used in fentanyl manufacturing.
Ramaswamy also opposed “digital fentanyl,” which he used as a reference against Chinese-owned social media platforms such as TikTok, and “financial fentanyl,” which referred to the U.S. national debt widely owned by China.
He also blasted the Biden administration over how they handled the Chinese spy balloon, arguing that we are scared to take action because of the country’s dependence on China.
