The China Problem

'SHOOT DOWN THE BALLOON!': Trump, GOP Blast Biden Admin for Inaction on Spy Balloon

Former President and 2024 candidate Donald Trump hit TRUTH Social to share his thoughts on the Chinese spy balloon found over Montana and making its way across America.

“SHOOT DOWN THE BALLOON!” Trump shared on TRUTH. Prominent GOP voices shared similar thoughts and frustrations.

From The Daily Caller:

Republican Montana Rep. Ryan Zinke ripped President Joe Biden’s administration for not immediately shooting down the Chinese balloon that is hovering over the state he represents in a Friday interview with the Daily Caller.

Zinke, a former NAVY Seal, weighed in on the news that broke Thursday evening that the Department of Defense is tracking a Chinese surveillance balloon that appears to be collecting data on sensitive sites inside the United States. China on Friday confirmed that the balloon is theirs, as a spokesperson claimed it is a civilian research airship.

The Montana Republican had a very simple solution to getting rid of the Chinese balloon, telling the Caller: “We should have shot it down. It’s embarrassing. Because the US faces clear and present danger with the Chinese and we can’t shoot down a balloon over rural Montana?”

Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert tweeted that China owns Joe Biden.

Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) says the balloon needs to come down.

Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene used the news story to take a shot at Dem Rep. Eric Swalwell.

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) is already calling for hearings on the balloon.

House Judiciary Chair Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) blasted the Biden admin for not paying attention.
