Top American business leaders have effectively become “lobbyists for communist China,” selfishly advocating for the same foreign power that seeks to undermine the United States and its democratic system, Sen. Tom Cotton said Tuesday.
“A lot of these Democrats have been in bed with China and a lot of them have been there for a very long time,” Cotton, R-Ark., told “The Story” on Tuesday. “But unfortunately, a lot of America’s corporate leaders have been as well.”
Cotton made the comment a day after “Tucker Carlson Tonight” aired a recorded lecture that showed a Chinese academic explaining how Beijing had “people at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence.” The expert spoke optimistically about China’s ability to thrive under a Biden administration and said Beijing was given “help” from business leaders on Wall Street.
“There was reporting, when a Chinese trade negotiator came to America last year, they met at the Chamber of Commerce with a bunch of business executives and asked them to lobby the president and lobby Congress on China’s behalf,” Cotton said.
