Ted Cruz says more Chinese consulates in U.S. 'may well be closed'
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas told CBS News' Margaret Brennan during an appearance on Sunday's edition of Face the Nation that more Chinese consulates in the U.S. "may well be closed" after the one in Houston shut down over allegations of spying and intellectual property theft.The senator, of course, can't unilaterally make that decision, but Washington's latest actions, including shutting the Houston consulate and declaring Beijing's South China Sea claims to be unlawful, suggest that the White House and State Department are leaning more toward's Cruz more hawkish view on China nowadays.On Sunday, Cruz, who was recently barred from entering China, said the big takeaway during the coronavirus pandemic in terms of foreign policy is indeed that "people are understanding the threat China poses" to the world, which he said he has argued for years.Cruz then went on to blame the Chinese government for covering up the origins of the coronavirus by silencing whistleblowers and subsequently allowing it to spread across the globe. > NEWS: @SenTedCruz suggests to @margbrennan more Chinese consulates in the U.S. may close after China's consulate in Houston, Texas shuttered this week. > > Adds, "The most significant foreign policy consequence of this pandemic is people are understanding the threat China poses." pic.twitter.com/YrjMbpSbkM> > -- Face The Nation (@FaceTheNation) July 26, 2020More stories from theweek.com 5 scathing cartoons about Trump's use of federal force Trump's old tricks aren't working Jared Kushner has reportedly refused to aid the House GOP's election wingMore DescriptionImage URL
