Bernie Sanders did a sit down interview with Hill.TV’s Krystal Ball. During the interview Ball questioned Bernie Sanders on China and if they are a threat to the United States. Sanders responded by praising the Communist government claiming they have done more for the poor than any other country in history.

Ted Cruz who is a staunch anti-Communist/Socialist fired back at rival Bernie Sanders for his praise of Communist China. Cruz claimed it’s easy to eliminate poverty when you murder everyone that lives in poverty.

Sanders stated, “China is a country that is moving, unfortunately, in a more authoritarian way in a number of directions,” Sanders said. “But what we have to say about China in fairness to China and its leadership is, if I’m not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization. So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”

Cruz tweeted, “Sure, the Chinese Communists have wrongfully imprisoned & tortured millions, and they have murdered over 65 million people, but Bernie may have a point: when you’re dead, your poverty’s solved, right? ”

 

During the Communist reign of Mao Zedong it was a dangerous time to live. Mao was responsible for killing 79 million of his citizens according to conservative estimates. However, it is also believed he killed over 100 million.

The current Communist China regime is oppressing the citizens of Hong Kong. China is denying the citizens of Hong Kong their sovereignty and forcing them to live in the oppressive restraints of Communism.

Knowing these facts Bernie Sanders praises China and wants the United States to be more like China and less like America and what the Founders had visioned for our free country.
