Dishonest Daines Misleads Montanans on History as ‘China Cheerleader’  
Helena, MT – Yesterday, Senator Steve Daines continued trying to cover up his cozy history with China by parroting his new talking points from his Washington party bosses and promising accountability for his old friends after years of being aChina cheerleader.”

This pivot comes after years of Daines actively courting Chinese officials, earning himself the title ofChina’s ambassador in Congress.” Just a few weeks ago, Daines praised the Chinese government’s response to COVID-19, saying the government “aggressively worked to contain” the virus. These fawning remarks came even as American intelligence officials were warning that China appeared to be minimizing the severity of the crisis. 

“Daines has changed his tune on China only after getting talking points from DC consultants because Republicans know they can’t defend their own coronavirus response,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “But the facts are clear: Daines has been aChina Cheerleaderfor years, and his most recent posturing is nothing more than a lame attempt to distract from his efforts to secure massive bailouts for his corporate backers over working families. Montanans won’t be fooled by his cynical flip-flopping.”
