Republican Montana Rep. Ryan Zinke ripped President Joe Biden’s administration for not immediately shooting down the Chinese balloon that is hovering over the state he represents in a Friday interview with the Daily Caller.

Zinke, a former NAVY Seal, weighed in on the news that broke Thursday evening that the Department of Defense is tracking a Chinese surveillance balloon that appears to be collecting data on sensitive sites inside the United States. China on Friday confirmed that the balloon is theirs, as a spokesperson claimed it is a civilian research airship.

The Montana Republican had a very simple solution to getting rid of the Chinese balloon, telling the Caller: “We should have shot it down. It’s embarrassing. Because the US faces clear and present danger with the Chinese and we can’t shoot down a balloon over rural Montana?”

Zinke’s comment comes after the Biden administration said they decided not to shoot the balloon down to avoid hurting people on the ground.

“Roosevelt County, where our family goes back, I think it’s the least populated county in the lower 48. And then how did it get here? It had to go through the Aleutian Chains. And I’ve been on the Aleutian chain, and I can tell there’s not a whole lot out there either,” Zinke said.

”Shoot. It. Down. The Chinese spy balloon is clear provocation. In Montana we do not bow. We shoot it down.
Take the shot,” Zinke tweeted.

Former First Son Donald Trump Jr. also said that if the Biden Admin. lacked the resolve to shoot the balloon down, locals did not.

“If Joe Biden and his administration are too weak to do the obvious and shoot down an enemy surveillance balloon perhaps we just let the good people of Montana do their thing… I imagine they have the capability and the resolve to do it all themselves,” he tweeted.

Rep Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) tweeted a similar message. WATCH:

“If the U.S. knows that this Chinese Spy Ballon is collecting information from our sensitive ICBM sites and transmitting it back to China, and we did not shoot it down, that would be the dumbest in a series of dumb decisions from @SecDef and Joe Biden that we have seen to date.

  1. Apparently some really bizarre is going on here and are the masses being played again? If it’s a balloon or fighter jet typically there is some action taken. Scare tactics? Another devil DEMONcrate deterrent? The swamp is so corrupt the truth will never be known, they will put a spin on it and the sheepeople will go back to sleep.

  2. It’s just a balloon that China is giving Biden a balloon for being a good boy for them, but not for us. Another one of Biden’s broken oath for not protecting America. SMH

  3. I hope when Trump returns to the Oval Office, he just cleans house. Everything from our military, DOJ, CIA, to the FBI has become so corrupted it disgusting. There is zero accountability for anything. I really resent the daily lies we are fed. That Air-force officer telling us we can’t shoot it down because the debris field might injure someone has no honor. He’s a disgrace to his uniform.
