McCain calls China a 'bully,' criticizes Trump's foreign policy in Sydney speech

In a remarkably blunt speech, US Sen. John McCain has called China a "bully" who is using its new found strength to remake the world order to better favor its needs. "The challenge is that as China has grown wealthier and stronger, it seems to be acting more and more like a bully," the Republican senator from Arizona and 2008 presidential candidate
said during a speech as a guest of the US Studies Center at the University of Sydney.

"It is refusing to open more of its economy so that foreign businesses can compete fairly. It is stealing other peoples' intellectual property. It is asserting vast territorial claims that have no basis in international law. And it is using its trade and investment as tools to coerce its neighbors," McCain added.
