According to the latest data from the U.S. Treasury Department, the United States owes nearly $1.08 trillion to Mainland China.
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) argues China should consider waiving some of that debt given the communist nation’s role in the spread of the COVID-19/coronavirus.
During an interview that aired on Huntsville, AL radio WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show,” when asked, Blackburn explained ways to hold China accountable for the global pandemic, noting her effort to officially recognize China’s role and the debtor relationship the United States has with China.
Another component the Tennessee Republican argued for on the accountability front was to bring elements of manufacturing back from China to the United States.
“There are other things we can bring back and put America back in the manufacturing business.”
