Mayor Bloomberg: ‘The People We’re Electing to Senate Don’t Know Where China Is’


Let me get this straight: [China] is taking their taxpayers’ dollars, trying to sell subsidized things so we can buy them cheaper and have better products, and we’re going to criticize that? If you look at who we’re electing to Congress and Senate — they can’t read. I’ll bet you a bunch of these people don’t have passports. We’re about to start a trade war with China if we’re not careful here, only because nobody knows where China is. Nobody knows what China is.” —68-year-old Independent Mayor Bloomberg, currently on a tour of China, when asked if using Chinese-made technology to promote green energy in the U.S. is politically objectionable.
