Sen. Roger Marshall criticized China on Newsmax for bullying Taiwan.
Appearing Tuesday on "The Chris Salcedo Show," the Kansas Republican said the "bully" is now picking on Taiwan.
"We need to end this ambiguity. The United States needs to step forward and stand beside [our] good ally," he said.
"We need to involve Taiwan in our military exercises," Marshall added. "We need to be training with them. China needs to see our actions, so we can stand with Japan, with Australia, with our friends in the United Kingdom, and Canada as well, to push back on a totalitarian government."
The senator's comments come in light of recent events regarding China's air force flying 148 planes in the southern and southwestern part of Taiwan's air defense zone for a four-day period that started Friday.
But according to CNBC, Taiwan is not experiencing any sort of panic from China's threats. Still, on Tuesday, Taiwanese Premier Su Tseng-chang said Taiwan needs to be vigilant as China threatens the peace of the island nation.
"Taiwan must be on alert," Su told reporters. "China is more and more over the top. The world has also seen China's repeated violations of regional peace and pressure on Taiwan."
Taiwan must come together as one and "strengthen itself," Su added.
"Only then will countries that want to annex Taiwan not dare to easily resort to force. Only when we help ourselves can others help us."
