Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) suggested Sunday that U.S. President Joe Biden is “compromised” by China, the New York Post reports.
Speaking to John Catsimatidis on the WABC 770 AM radio show, Scott said, “All that Biden does is pacify China.”
“I mean, I don’t know why he does it. I don’t know if he’s compromised. I don’t know what it is. But this is a guy that won’t stand up to dictators around the world,” the Senator continued.
Scott also said during the conversation that American companies should stop doing business with countries like China, and instead “focus on what’s good for America, what’s good for Americans, what’s good for our children, our grandchildren.”
In recent months especially, Biden has dealt with lingering questions regarding his ties to the Chinese Communist Party, and Scott has continually hit the President for failing to stand his ground against the far east superpower.
Linking to an Associated Press survey showing that 58% of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of U.S.-Sino relations, Scott tweeted, “Communist China has chosen to be our enemy. The CCP wants to destroy our way of life, and [Joe Biden] shows nothing but weak appeasement.”
“The American people deserve a leader in Washington who stands up to evil regimes and puts America first,” Scott added.

The Florida Senator has also repeatedly slammed the Biden administration on domestic issues.
Monday, Scott tweeted a clip of his recent visit to Fox News discussing the East Palestine train derailment disaster, in which he slams Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.
In the clip, the former Florida governor chided both Biden and Buttigieg for failing to meet the moment and “show up” to East Palestine.
“What you do, is you show up,” Scott said, drawing on his personal experience dealing with disasters as the chief executive of Florida.
“You go to solve problems, you don’t do more television … Buttigieg is just a television personality now,” Scott continued, referring to the transportation secretary’s failure to visit the derailment site for weeks.
Secretary Buttigieg is more concerned about getting on TV than showing up for Americans.
