China Shipping Line (Chinese goods)A conservative activist says America must hold herself accountable for following the 30-year-old policies that have put the nation in a position of vulnerability with China.

Much has been made about the need to hold China accountable for its handling of the coronavirus outbreak, including its attempts to deflect blame for the spread of the virus to the U.S. military. A number of lawmakers are now calling on Congress to formally condemn the communist regime's response to the virus outbreak. But given the country's military power, Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families says it may be difficult to accomplish that.

"What we must do is hold ourselves accountable for the policies that were followed over the last 30 years that put the United States in the position of vulnerability to China that we are in now -- policies that said trade with China was the most important thing, that trade with China would change China, that there was nothing wrong if a factory closed here and opened up in China because that's how the free market is supposed to work," Bauer tells OneNewsNow.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)By following these policies, he says the U.S. has effectively transferred the total manufacturing capability of multiple things that are central the nation's security, "including various technologies, access to various medicines, [and] access to the chemicals that make medicines. This is a national scandal," he asserts.

That, adds Bauer, is not something President Trump can completely reverse in just three years.
