Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed NBC News on Tuesday night after the far-left network continued to present communist China in a positive light amid the coronavirus outbreak, which originated in China.

Linking to a news article, NBC News tweeted, “U.S. reports 1,264 coronavirus deaths in over 24 hours. Meanwhile in China, where the pandemic broke out, not a single new coronavirus death was reported.”

Cruz responded, “Under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, 22 USC 611 et seq, I’m pretty sure NBC is now legally obligated to close every broadcast with—and append to every tweet—’this message paid for by the Communist Party of China.'”

Nikki Haley, former South Carolina Republican Governor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, also slammed NBC News over the tweet, writing, “Come on @NBCNews . This is embarrassing. You discredit yourself when you tout China’s propaganda. #KnowYourSource”

Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) also hit NBC News over the tweet, writing, “Strange that the media is so skeptical about hydroxychloroquine, yet so willing to believe propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party. They hate @realdonaldtrump more than they love America.”

Collins added in a separate tweet: “Here’s the mainstream media parroting demonstrably false numbers from the Chinese to undercut @realDonaldTrump . It’s shameful.”
