Bridgewater Associates Chief Executive Officer David McCormick, who is considering a U.S. Senate run, made it clear he disagrees with Ray Dalio’s politically unpopular defenses of China.

On a company call, McCormick addressed controversial remarks that Dalio had made this week on television, in which the hedge fund’s legendary founder compared China to a “strict parent” when asked about the disappearance of its citizens who get in trouble.
