While speaking about China’s latest efforts to implement a social credit system, the congressman eventually diverted to talk about how the country treats Muslims.
As he noted that a “million” Muslims are being put into camps, having their children taken away and the women undergoing forced sterilization, King eventually chuckled after saying that Muslims are being forced to adopt a Chinese diet.
“They want them to put on Chinese clothing and eat Chinese diet, which includes trying to force the Muslims to eat pork. That’s actually the only part of that that I agree with. Everybody ought to eat pork. if you have a shortage of bacon, you can’t be happy.”
