Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley went on Fox News on Tuesday to demand that China be held accountable for the COVID-19 virus that originated there.
Warning that China is becoming the “world superpower,” Haley said that the “U.S. can’t sit back and play nice” as it deals with the likes of Iran, Russia and North Korea. Haley added that it is a “concern” for her that President Joe Biden is so reluctant to be tough on China.
“If you look at the Biden administration, they are coming across very naive,” Haley said. “When you are humiliated in a meeting with China. When Putin challenges you to a debate, and you watch China and Iran make a fantastically huge deal that will put terrorism around the world at an even larger level, when you have North Korea shooting ballistic missiles, I mean the Biden administration is way over their head on this. And they are playing nice and they’re being naive, and China is running all over them.”
“I mean…you have to look at what a big thing happened when China and Iran signed that agreement bill,” Haley added. “What that did was basically give Iran a pass from having to deal with the U.S. or the Europeans at all. Secondly, massive influx of money that now goes to their proxies in Syria, Iraq, Yemen that they can continue to do things with, allows China to get their oil, allows Iran and China to exchange military cooperation. And, worse than that, they establish a bank situation which goes back to what they’re all trying to do, which is to make sure that the U.S. dollar is no longer the world reserve.”
Not stopping there, Haley warned about how “serious” this really is.
“So this is serious,” she continued. “China has made a massive power play by aligning with Iran, aligning with Russia, aligning with North Korea, and they are going to continue to do this. And the U.S. can’t sit back and play nice. We have got to start moving. We have got to get with our allies. We have got to start getting aggressive, and we have to make sure that we don’t allow China to do exactly what they are doing, which is becoming the world superpower.”
