President Trump Totally Eviscerates China Over Coronavirus In Epic Address To The United Nations
(Tea Party 247) – There’s been a lot for conservatives to love about President Trump’s administration, but one of the things folks really can’t get enough of is his eschewing of political correctness. The president is not at all afraid to speak his mind, to let you know what he really thinks about a given situation, and more often than not, his take on something aligns with the vast majority of individuals in the country.
That’s how he became president.
Well, in a recorded speech delivered to the United Nations on Tuesday, President Trump made it clear that he blames China for the COVID-19 outbreak, along with the World Health Organization, and wants to see them both held accountable for their attempts to cover up much needed information that could have saved thousands of lives.
Here’s more on this from Summit News:
“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 asserted.
The President further attacked China more broadly, stating that “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.”
Turning to solutions, Trump promised to distribute a vaccine noting, “We will defeat the virus, and we will end the pandemic and enter a new era of prosperity, cooperation and peace.”
The President also criticised the UN, saying that it needs to concentrate 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”.
China’s UN ambassador, Zhang Jun, was none too happy with the president’s comments about the lack of personal responsibility concerning the coronavirus and decided to fire a few shots of his own.
“The world is at a crossroads. At this moment, the world needs more solidarity and cooperation, but not confrontation,” Jun said.
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 truth of the matter is, this virus, whether purposefully or accidental, leaked out due to the steps and measures taken by the Chinese Communist Party. And then, for their government to work hand-in-hand with WHO to fudge numbers that led to lax measures being taken by other countries to stop the spread of the virus is absolutely inexcusable.
They should be held accountable for their part in this whole mess.
