Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) offered tough talk on China, including its role in spreading a virus that has killed thousands around the world and holding the United States hostage by controlling the global drug supply, in a Thursday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
Blackburn told Breitbart News Daily that China’s control of the global drug supply and it using it against its enemies, including the United States, has been put in the spotlight after the coronavirus took root in Central China before spreading around the world.
The United States should also, Blackburn said, put a halt to its dependence on China by bringing the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals back to this country.
“The best way for us to do that is to make America manufacture again,” Blackburn said, referring to the Securing America’s Medicine Cabinet Act, which she and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) are proposing.
Blackburn has dubbed the bill MAMA — Make America Manufacture Again.
