WHITE HOUSE TURNS THE OTHER CHEEK ON CHINA'S ACTIONS (House of Representatives - April 24, 1997)

[Page: H1798]

(Mr. TRAFICANT asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. TRAFICANT. Mr. Speaker, China denies American products and the White House turns the other cheek. China smuggles AK-47's into America and the White House turns the other cheek. China sells missiles to Iran, the White House turns the other cheek. China even threatened to use nuclear force against Taiwan. The White House turns the other cheek.

And after all this, the White House still wants to grant most-favored-nation trade status to China.

Beam me up here. Evidently, the White House will not learn a lesson till one of those Communist Chinese missiles hits them right smack in the middle of their other cheeks. Think about that one, ladies and gentlemen. We are, in fact, financing the next major national security threat to our Nation.
