Jeff Sessions Slams Tommy Tuberville for Saying that China has “Got a Better Military” than America

Sessions: “On the day after Memorial Day, Tommy Tuberville is exalting the Chinese Communist Party’s military over our own.”

 

MOBILE, Ala. — On the day after Memorial Day, Tommy Tuberville went on the Jeff Poor Radio Show and said that Communist China has a “better military” than the United States.

“We’ve got China that’s got a better military, and things, than we have,” Tuberville said. (YouTube LINK).

Senator Jeff Sessions responded with this statement:

“On the day after Memorial Day, Tommy Tuberville is exalting the Chinese Communist Party’s military over our own. Mr. Tuberville should immediately apologize. His views further prove that he’s not fit to be a United States Senator.

“His comments are an affront to the thousands of American military members who constitute the best fighting force the world has ever known.

“I have been to Afghanistan and Iraq and visited with our troops numerous times and have been to every one of Alabama’s military bases countless times, and let me tell you, there is no better friend and no worse enemy than the United States military.

“This is personal to me. I served proudly in the armed forces as a Captain in the U.S. Army Reserve for over a decade. What Tommy Tuberville said is objectively wrong and reveals a lack of real understanding,” Sessions concluded.

This is the latest and most shocking example of Tuberville’s attitude of passive appeasement towards the Chinese Communist Party.

In an April radio interview on the Matt & Aunie Radio Show, when asked what should be done about China’s cover-up of the Wuhan Virus, Tuberville said, “We can’t worry about China right now.”

From the April transcript:

RADIO HOST: “What do you see happening with China?”

TUBERVILLE: “Well, we can’t worry about China right now…”

Follow-up question from the host, and Tuberville’s response:

RADIO HOST: “You say you don’t need to worry about China, but this came from China and our economy depends on China. Specifically how to overcome some of that dependence on Chinese goods and specifically in the pharmaceutical industry because right now we’re dependent on the country that covered this up.”

TUBERVILLE: …”now we’re seeing firsthand the results of letting everything go to China. The good thing about this is we’ll have manufacturing come back and drugs and all those things….we’re headed in that direction, just the simple fact that we can’t control our own destiny. Everything’s controlled by China. But that’ll take care of itself.”

During the Matt & Aunie interview, Tuberville also characterized the Wuhan Virus as “just a virus.”
