Washington, D.C. _ Warrensville Heights Democratic Rep. Marcia Fudge led a Congressional Black Caucus delegation to China last week, where she and nine colleagues discussed foreign, domestic, and economic policy with Chinese, Hong Kong, and U.S. government officials, as well as members of the American Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong.
Fudge and her colleagues visited Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong during the weeklong trip paid for by the Chinese government. While in China, Fudge and the group met with Chinese Vice Premier Liu Yandong and other high-level officials.
The trip hosted by the Chinese People's Institute of Foreign Affairs is Fudge's first excursion abroad in her official role as Congressional Black Caucus chair. It is also the first time a black caucus delegation has visited China, said spokeswoman Ayofemi Kirby.
"As China continues to experience exponential growth and expansion, it is critical for Members of the CBC to to understand how these changes will affect the United States and particularly the communities we represent," Fudge said in a press statement that echoed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's call to double the number of students from historically black colleges and universities who study abroad in China.
"The CBC looks forward to continuing the conversations held with officials within the Chinese and Hong Kong governments and with American citizens living abroad to ensure we remain equipped to address the issues facing our nation in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world," she continued.
That's what got her elected with the District she represents....there's nothing the Chinese do that would benefit her constituency, unless they send crack cocain, baggy-ass pants, aire Jordan sneakers, ammo, tatoos, or Cadillac Escalades.
4th generation welfare parasites there do not have any interest in Jobs or the Economy, as long as the handouts and Obamaphones (to contact the drug dealers) continue to be provided.
trip paid for by the Chinese government.
Sounds hinky to me.
She wanted to see for herself how 0bama is going to fundamentally transform america.
Dang. Can't get rid of anything anymore.
Have the Caucasian or Asian caucuses been invited?
-—— oh -—— wait -——
Paid for by the Chinese government. Is that just a fancy way to say paid for by US taxpayers?
Oops — that’s ‘ caucuses’!
Clearly not a math whiz.... "Exponential" <> "High Single Digit"
I’m sure the Chinese got some good laughs out of this!
I believe she’s married to one Homer Packer but, for obvious reasons, chose to use her maiden name.
And I’m sure the Chinese enjoyed the intelligent and intellectually stimulating conversations. /s
They sent Fudge packing.
Corrected - Trip paid for by the Chinese Communist Party.
