Aug 16, 2019 | Comunicados de Prensa

Jacksonville, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s plan to move ahead with an $8 billion sale of F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan:

“I commend the administration for moving forward with the sale of F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan. As the Chinese government and Communist Party seeks to extend its authoritarian reach in the region, it is critical that the United States continue to enhance our strategic relationship with our democratic partner Taiwan through regular and consistent support. This move is an important step in support of Taiwan’s self-defense efforts, and I urge the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and House Foreign Affairs Committee to quickly advance this critical arms sale.”
