ICYMI: Rubio on Fox and Friends
Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Fox and Friends to discuss former Vice President Joe Biden’s proposed policy towards Cuba and Venezuela, as well as the confirmation process of Judge Amy Coney Barrett. See below for highlights and watch the full interview here.
On Joe Biden’s proposed policy towards Venezuela and Cuba:
“Well, both of those statements are a joke. I mean, a total joke. On the issue of Venezuela, he’s basically describing the Trump policy, except Trump’s actually done it. So, more sanctions — that’s what we’ve done — crippling sanctions. Support for Democratic actors — the President of the United States was the first world leader to recognize the interim president Juan Guaidó , and then all of these other countries followed. International community and support — I don’t know, it’s up to 50 something countries that now recognize Guaidó as a legitimate government.
“So I don’t understand exactly what it is he would do any differently other than, I think, back down and actually reverse course.
“And on Cuba, he’s acting like when the Obama policies were in place they were closer to democracy. All of the things he just criticized were in place when the Obama policies that he supports — and I imagine that’s what he means by different policy, going back to the Obama policies.
“Here’s the only difference — or the biggest difference. When Obama was president, the Cuban regime was making a lot of money off of tourism because of the democratic — because of the economic opening that Obama put in place and Biden supported.
“So I think what he’s basically saying is we’re going to allow them to start making money if he wins the presidency. And on Venezuela, I think he’s going to totally cave and collapse. And that’s why both in Caracas and in Havana, the dictators are hoping that Joe Biden wins and Donald Trump loses. It is their only way forward and that’s what they’re hoping is going to happen in this election. I guarantee it.”
On Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s call to halt the upcoming Senate confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett:
“So, if I follow his argument, what he’s basically saying is we need to close down the fire department because there’s firefighters that have COVID. Let’s close down the police departments, let’s close down the grocery stores, let’s close down the medical centers. I mean, every workplace in America is facing a COVID challenge. We have a job to do — an essential job for the country — because we can’t pass laws and we can’t confirm Supreme Court nominees if the Senate doesn’t meet.
“So, these hearings are going to happen next week — maybe virtually. Members can do it virtually so they can protect themselves. There will be a vote, and then it will come to the floor and there will be a vote. We have a job to do. We need to do it as safely as possible and take every precaution possible. But we have a job to do.
“They were having the same complaints back in May when we came back into session then. So if it was up to them,Congress just wouldn’t meet, I suppose. But every workplace in America could make that argument.”
