GOP Sen. Roger Marshall: ‘China Wants to Own the World’

'What they need is public shaming … not just the United States but we need other countries to shame them as well...'

Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kansas, said on the Fourth of July that China “wants to own the world” and must be stopped, Newsmax reported.

In a Fox News interview, Marshall said that we must subject China to public shaming for its role in the origination and spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

China wants to own the world—that is their goal right now,” he said, citing China’s attempts to cover up its role in the virus’ spread, among other evidence.

“We know that the Wuhan [laboratory] was starting to cover up this particular incident as well in October 2019, thousands of soldiers from hundreds of countries gathered in Wuhan, China for a military Olympics. Several weeks later, many of them developed symptoms,” he said.

But since China clearly is not worried about having spread the coronavirus, the best approach is to dishonor them.

“What they need is public shaming … not just the United States but we need other countries to shame them as well,” Marshall said. “We need to bring manufacturing back to the United States, do all those things to publicly battle them.”

Marshall then went a step further, suggesting that the virus’s leak, whether accidental or intentional, was the result of its pursuit of biological weapons using controversial gain-of-function research that the US had banned at the time.

“They should be ashamed that they invented the bioterrorism weapon,” he said. “They should be ashamed they leaked it from the lab. They should be ashamed that they covered it up.”

According to Marshall, China also engages in high-level intellectual property theft.

“They steal $500 billion of intellectual property from us every year, 90% of the counterfeits and fentanyl that come into our country [are] made in China,” he claimed.

The best way to slow China is to “hold them accountable,” according to Marshall.

“It’s going to be painful—it’s going to be painful for this country and the world to say ‘we can’t do business with you when you lie, cheat and steal from Americans.'”

Nonetheless, he said such “tough love” measures were absolutely necessary.

“Focus on bringing the supply chains back to the United States,” Marshall said. “We have to start by doing that yesterday.”
