Congressman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) is making headlines for sticking up for Americans.
President Trump threw his support behind the Texas representative, who is seeking reelection in the 2022 midterms in the 10th Congressional District of Texas. According to the 45th president, McCaul is a strong conservative leader who is working hard to advance the “America First” agenda.
McCaul has worked with the Trump administration to bring American jobs back to the U.S. and away from China and stressed the U.S. is too dependent on goods from China. As chair of the China Task Force, McCaul is leading the push for a legislative plan to confront the Chinese Communist Party and said Joe Biden isn’t doing enough.
“From a human rights standpoint, in the Xinjiang Province, where they’re currently committing genocide on the backs of slave labor with Uyghur Muslims,” said McCaul. “And we’re not really talking about that issue.”
Meanwhile, McCaul has also called out the Biden administration for poor judgement when it comes to foreign policy, specifically demonstrated through Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal.
According to McCaul, as Biden continues to turn a blind eye to national security concerns and put Americans last, he will tread his own path. The Republican said he will stick up for Americans and values central to the nation’s founding.
