Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) recently criticized Democrat Party officials for defending socialist regimes across the world.

“One of the things that drives me crazy about Democrats is they have this nasty little habit of apologizing for communist dictators,” he stated. “They think they’re cute.”

In an interview Monday, the Texas Republican slammed the Chinese Communist Party for violating human rights of the Chinese people and for not stopping the coronavirus before it spread to the rest of the world.

Cruz also said this is a result of several Democrat administrations having failed to stand up to oppressive regimes in the past.

“We won’t prevail in that battle, that fundamental battle of systems, if we’re too naive,” he stated. “…if we’re too oblivious to even be aware that there is a battle being waged, much less to stand up and defeat the Chinese aggression.”

Cruz is now calling on his fellow lawmakers to slap sanctions on top Chinese officials involved in an alleged cover-up of the initial coronavirus outbreak in the city of Wuhan.
