South Carolina GOP Rep. Ralph Norman says the U.S. plans to take the initiative when it comes to Chinese violations of U.S. airspace.

"We're gonna hopefully put the screws to China," Norman said on the Wednesday edition of the "Just the News, No Noise" TV show. "I went to look at a document just a little bit ago in the scare phone and what the plan was if any other object violated the airspace, They're getting the message."

The Biden administration has attracted criticism for waiting days to shoot down a Chinese spy balloon after it floated across the United States earlier this year.

Norman further chastised Biden for failing to articulate a clear China policy.

"With any of the Biden interviews, he's not coherent," stated Norman. "And whoever's running this country is doing a lot of damage to us. But the hearings will shed some light on what's been going on and what the future holds."

The House Select Committee on Strategic Competition between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party held its first hearing on Tuesday evening during which some former Trump administration officials testified as to the national security threat posed by Beijing.
