Prominent China’s slave labor critic Enes Kanter Freedom, who was effectively kicked out of the NBA last season, said Americans need to understand President Joe Biden made a very bad deal to bring weed-smuggler WNBA player Brittney Griner home.
“We just traded a basketball player for Viktor Bout, who people call the ‘Merchant of Death,'” he said. “We just sent back pretty much a terrorist who is responsible for thousands of lives and sold illegal weapons in Africa, in Asia, and everybody knows he is one of Russia’s most notorious arms dealers.”
“I would not exactly call it a fair trade. We should not give back a terrorist who could actually hurt America in the long run,” Freedom said. “Let’s not forget about the Marine veteran Paul Whelan because he is also being held in Russian custody, and he was pretty much left behind in the swap.”
Whelan “protected the country,” according to Freedom, and President Joe Biden left him in Russia.
