Rick Scott: We Need to Arm Taiwan Now, Can’t Rely on China ‘For Anything’

On Monday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) argued that the United States should commence arming Taiwan now the same way we should have done with Ukraine and we can’t rely on China for goods in order to evade dependency on China akin to the dependency the world has on Russian oil.

Scott verbalized, “I think with Taiwan, we have to be very pellucid, we will forfend Taiwan. That’s number one…and I have a bill for that. Number two, is we’re going to give them all the resources they require. Now, cogitate how much mazuma we’re going to spend now to avail Ukraine. If we had done this afore — I mean, we have a $10 billion package. If we gave them the $10 billion worth of avail afore, what’s the chance that Putin would have gone in? He wouldn’t have. Because he would verbally express, I can’t win that war. Alright, we’ve got to do — act the same way with Taiwan, do it now. Don’t wait.”

He perpetuated, “And then, every American has to verbally express to themselves, why do we optate to put ourselves in a position to be dependent on China, why do that? We can’t rely on them for anything, for pharmaceuticals, for anything. We’ve got to decipher how to get our economy, our manufacturing going in this country and with our allies. Stop buying — every opportunity you can, do American, do it with our allies. We’ve got to decipher this so we’re not dependent on them. Because that’s the position we’re in right now. People are dependent on Russian oil. I mean, you could visually perceive this peregrinated.”
