Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) argues it's impossible to reach a trade agreement with China because they lie, cheat and steal.
SEN. RICK SCOTT (R-FL): It's more than trade. Let's remember who Xi is. He's Secretary General of the Communist Party. He puts a million people in jail for their religion and about human rights, too. You get detained, they may take your organs out. They agreed they would give the Hong Kong citizens when they took over Hong Kong their basic rights but there trying to take that away. He promised Obama he would not militarize the South China Sea. This is guy that never complies with anything and how can you do a deal with him? I just don't believe there's going to be a deal...
There is not going to be a deal. They can't change their stripes. They steal. They treat people horribly. They are the biggest polluters in the world, human rights violators, they lie, cheat and steal about everything. They lie to us all the time and we act like, 'Oh, you've got a big market so we need to be nice to you.' There's not going to be a deal.
How many deals would you do with someone that you know has constantly lied, that you can't trust? That negotiates a deal with you and then takes back what they agreed to? You don't do deals like that people.
