Despite promising to be “tough on China, a new report from Insider highlights that Pennsylvania Republican U.S Senate nominee Mehmet Oz has a long record of praising the country, and “taking a business-like approach to his relationships with them.”
According to the report, Oz’s “hardline sentiments toward China weren’t always so.” In 2013, Oz praised a business venture with Neusoft — one of China’s largest software outsourcing providers. The partnership was even celebrated in a newsletter that “trumpeted [the] Oz-Neusoft union.”
But this wasn’t Oz’s first foray into the country. Before scamming Pennsylvanians, Oz was scamming consumers with products made overseas, largely in China. Moreover, Oz had a lucrative sponsorship deal with Usana Health Sciences — a multi-level marketing firm “whose largest single market is China.”
Oz’s campaign trail rhetoric has repeatedly been exposed as effectively fraudulent and at odds with his actual record. Time and time again, he has proven that he will say and do anything to get elected, no matter how big the lie.
Insider: Mehmet Oz says he’ll be ‘tough on China’ as a senator. But a 2013 announcement from a Chinese health tech company offers a different perspective.

- “But a buzz-wordy press release issued nearly a decade ago by Neusoft Xikang, a healthcare technology subsidiary of Chinese software and information technology giant Neusoft Corporation, suggests Oz’s hardline sentiments toward China weren’t always so.”
- “Rather, Oz — a media-personality-turned-Donald Trump-endorsed politician struggling to keep pace with Democrat John Fetterman in Pennsylvania’s US Senate race — celebrated his new ‘partnership’ in China.”
