As Daines doubles down on his new tough-on-China talking points, his history of granting access to state-run Chinese media highlights his cozy relationship with the country. Daines has spent years “actively courting senior Communist Party officials” and has been accused of doing the country’s “political bidding” but has recently pivoted to criticizing China – seemingly taking orders from Washington DC consultants who advised shifting blame for Trump’s botched coronavirus response onto the Chinese government.
“Steve Daines giving access to Chinese state-run media is just another example of his close connection to the very country he’s now hammering in his campaign,” said MDP Communications Advisor Christina Wilkes. “Daines hopes his new messaging obscures his long relationship with Communist party officials, but Montanans know better.”
