Growing Chinese aggression alarmed US critics
During their last “My Take”, Varney & Co. host Stuart Varney discusses how the US should respond to China’s “evil empire”, arguing that it may be time to confront the US adversary with an “evil speech” much like former President Ronald Reagan’s approach to the Soviet Union.
STUART VARNEY: It’s March 8, 2023.

He gave the Western world moral support. He seized the moral high ground.
Maybe it’s time for another “evil empire” speech, but I wouldn’t expect President Biden do it…
