MP: Najib's silence on Trump's ban shows subservience to US
Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's silence on US President Donald Trump's travel ban on Muslims shows that Malaysia has become subservient to both the United States and China, an Amanah lawmaker laments
"We are not only subservient to the US but also increasingly to Communist China by allowing it massive economic domination," Kuala Terengganu MP Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad said in a statement today.
Najib has been under fire for the rise in China's involvement in local development projects, with critics claiming that the country is being "sold" to China.
Meanwhile, critics are also piling pressure on Najib for not commenting on Trump's travel ban on the citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
