Marco Rubio, the Latino Republican, tries to be more Trump than Trump

1. The Trump administration is the most anti-Latino one that we have ever had. Donald Trump began his campaign for the presidency by racializing Latinos as mostly criminals and rapists. He called for and continues to call for a wall and for Mexico to pay for it. The wall is not just a structure for Trump and his supporters, but a symbol of keeping out the "zombies" or, in this case, Mexicans and Central Americans fleeing poverty and violence....

2. US Senator Marco Rubio proposed legislation on Monday to prevent Huawei from enforcing its patents in the US, after the Chinese company chased Verizon Communications Inc. for over $1 billion in patent license fees. Under his proposal, Huawei would "not be allowed to seek relief under US law with respect to US patents, including bringing legal action over patent infringement."...

Just imagine. If Washington adopts Rubio's bill and ignores China's basic patent rights, why should China value US patents? If the US casts away rudimentary credibility and respect, why should China strenuously follow the rules of the game? If Rubio's suggestion becomes law, the US may provide China with perfectly justifiable reasons to strike back.

China's total intellectual property purchases in 2018 reached $35.6 billion, of which $8.64 billion were paid to the US. Thanks to Senator Rubio, China stands a chance of saving nearly $9 billion every year. What a massive expenditure!

But how ridiculous and pathetic it will be! ...

The US has built an intellectual property system brick by brick, but it is now destroying it with double standards and self-importance.

The country has been clamoring for the world's attention for China's so-called technology theft, but it is now attempting to rob.

In a bid to crack down on a normal Chinese enterprise, it is trying to tear off its last fig leaf. The US is moving in the opposite direction to what it has often proclaimed. If Rubio's proposal really takes effect, will there be any order in the world?

The US is losing its self-proclaimed righteousness about intellectual property. If anyone must be called a "patent troll," Rubio and the US fully deserve the title....

3. Marco Antonio Rubio (born May 28, 1971) is a Cuban American from Miami, Florida. He is the second son and third child of Mario Rubio Reina and Oriales (née Garcia) Rubio. His parents were Cubans who immigrated to the United States in 1956, prior to the rise of Fidel Castro in January 1959. His mother made at least four return trips to Cuba after Castro's takeover, including a month-long trip in 1961. Neither of Rubio's parents was a US citizen at the time of Rubio's birth, but his parents applied for US citizenship and were naturalized in 1975. Some relatives of Rubio's were admitted to the US as refugees.

Cuban Americans are Americans who trace their ancestry to Cuba. The word may refer to someone born in the US of Cuban descent or to someone who has emigrated to the US from Cuba. Cuban Americans are the third-largest Latino group in the United States.

Instead of denouncing Trump for racializing Latinos as mostly criminals and rapists, Marco Rubio, a Latino himself, tries to be more Trump than Trump, “whiter” than Trump, and more supremacist than Trump in US politics.
