WASHINGTON, D.C. – In case you missed it, Senator Rick Scott appeared on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” today to discuss the ongoing unrest in Hong Kong, and his doubts that Communist China will ever live up to their commitments and come to the table on a trade deal. He also urged the Commerce Department to refuse to renew Huawei’s license to do business with the United States.

“Communist China wants to control the entire world, including Americans,” the Florida Republican said on “Squawk Box.” “They’re not our partner. They’re never going to be our partner under these existing leadership teams.”
“All of us would like a deal with China,” Scott said. But he added he doesn’t believe the Chinese can fundamentally change. “They’re not going to do anything that’s good for us and they’re never going to open up their markets.”
“We cannot continue to build the Chinese economy,” the senator said.
Earlier this year, Scott said Americans need to stop purchasing Chinese products because other punitive measures in the trade war haven’t been effective.”
