WASHINGTON (Financial Times) -- A leading China hawk in the U.S. Congress has lashed out at Chinese listings in the U.S. in the wake of the botched initial public offering of ride-hailing app Didi Chuxing, as the debacle attracted scrutiny in Washington.

Marco Rubio, a Republican senator from Florida, told the Financial Times in a statement that it was "reckless and irresponsible" to allow Didi, which he described as an "unaccountable Chinese company," to sell shares on the New York Stock Exchange.
