Laura Ingraham said Monday that Russia’s relationship with China is helping to bolster the country’s invasion of Ukraine and that the United States should sanction the Chinese Communist Party.

Russia attacked Ukraine for five consecutive days, causing more than 500,000 people to flee. The Pentagon on Monday called Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to place nuclear deterrent forces on “high alert” an “escalation”.

“When words like ‘enhanced nuclear alert’ are used by the Russian President, we need to think very carefully about our next steps. We need to remember how we got here, and we also need to avoid making further mistakes about the road,” The Ingraham Angle host said.

Ingraham said one of the factors encouraging Putin to invade Ukraine was his relationship with China, a country that has become increasingly competitive with the United States.

“[China is] now the invisible hand that is causing much of the chaos in Ukraine and allowing Putin to expand his borders,” she said.

Ingraham then proposed to sanction China.

“So even tougher sanctions from Europe, which we applaud in the US, will only go so far as long as China is Putin’s reliable backer. So to make things really make sense, to really stop the chaos, the sanctions must also be gradually directed against China as well,” she said.

“We could move forward incrementally or even immediately…to revoke China’s permanent normal trade relations status, that would have to come from Congress. Additionally, Biden could launch a new investigation into all of their…unfair and illegal business practices…Similarly, tariffs against China could be incrementally raised over time,” Ingraham explained.

“Biden’s policies have made us less free, less prosperous, and less secure. Americans want the opposite, and they can feel our country’s standing in the world…evaporating. Right now, we seem to be rocked by the world events, we are not a motor of world events.”

Ingraham warned against overspending given America’s financial woes under Biden. “We already have $30 trillion in the hole, we never want to talk about it, but that’s the way it is. That in itself is eroding our economic strength and it’s happening every day,” Ingraham said.

“And of course, as our hearts break desperately over the suffering of Ukraine and the human rights catastrophe inflicted on them.”

“Here at home, Biden’s policies have also caused suffering for our own people. He’s given us an open border, rampant inflation, rampant crime. Republicans shouldn’t be rushing to approve any request for military spending. additional Americans without clear and clear guidelines how it will be spent, how it will be used.”
