(Right Country) – Few leaders from around the world have been brave enough to call out the Chinese Communist Party for their role in bringing the coronavirus on all of humanity. President Trump, however, did not mince words during a powerful speech Tuesday given to the United Nations. The President blasted China for covering up the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan and failing to prevent it from becoming the global pandemic that it did. Trump also added indicted the World Health Organization for being complicit in China’s blatant cover-up and failure to contain the virus.
“As we pursue this bright future, we must hold accountable the nation which unleashed this plague onto the world: China,” Trump said.
“The Chinese government and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” the President added.
“Later they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” Trump continued, adding that “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions.”
“We have waged a fierce battle against the invisible enemy — the China virus,” Trump declared.
The President broaden his attack on China, saying, “Those who attack America’s exceptional environmental record while ignoring China’s rampant pollution are not interested in the environment. They only want to punish America. And I will not stand for it.”
Going back to the virus, Trump said, “We will defeat the virus, and we will end the pandemic and enter a new era of prosperity, cooperation and peace.”
The President also took aim at the UN saying the organization needs to focus on “the real problems of the world” including “terrorism, the oppression of women, forced labor, drug trafficking, human and sex trafficking, religious persecution, and the ethnic cleansing of religious minorities.” President Trump certainly isn’t wrong there.
According to Summit News China’s UN Ambassador and President Xi responded:
China’s UN ambassador Zhang Jun later hit back at Trump, declaring “The world is at a crossroads. At this moment, the world needs more solidarity and cooperation, but not confrontation.”
President Xi Jinping, the Chinese leader, claimed that the country has “no intention to fight either a cold war or a hot one with any country”, adding that “Any attempt of politicizing the issue or stigmatization must be rejected.”
Xi advocated a global solution to the pandemic, via the WHO, proclaiming that “We will continue to narrow differences and resolve disputes with others through dialogue and negotiation. We will not seek to develop only ourselves or engage in zero sum game. Unilateralism is dead.”
Xi called for an embracing of globalism, declaring that “COVID-19 reminds us that we are living in an interconnected global village with a common stake.”
“Burying one’s head in the sand like an ostrich in the face of economic globalization, or trying to fight it with Don Quixote’s lance, goes against the trend of history. Let this be clear: the world will never return to isolation,” Xi urged in a blatant advocation of globalism.
The Chinese leader’s words are extremely rich, given that China deliberately seized global supply lines for medical supplies and disgustingly profited by not informing the rest of the globe of the extent of the spread of coronavirus back in January.
A US Foreign Affairs Committee report released this week concluded as much, noting that China covered up the coronavirus pandemic, and failed to follow international health guidelines which would have almost certainly prevented the global pandemic.
It’s really time for China to be held accountable for the global devastation and economic hardships caused by their actions. President Trump is right and this is just one of the many reasons why he will win reelection come November.
