All across the country, the conversation is happening about who or what is to blame for coronavirus. If you listen to the main stream media, the person to blame is President Trump. No, the Coronavirus is not President Trump’s fault. So who is at fault?
The blame directly lies on China and the Chinese Communist Party. Chinese officials knew of the coronavirus and the crisis in December, but failed to respond. Instead, they engaged in a cover up. They ordered samples destroyed and placed individuals under gag orders to keep them silent. Over 3 weeks passed from the time they were made aware of the virus until the news of the virus became public. By that time, the damage was already done.
According to a recent report by 60 Minutes Australia, a decision was made by Chinese President Xi Jinping that allowed around 5 million people to leave the country. That was 5 million people who were in the epicenter of this virus, who traveled around the world spreading the virus. China knew exactly what they were doing.
All throughout, China was stockpiling medical supplies and equipment. They knew that other nations would be forced to look to China for help as the virus spread. As this has happened, China has attempted to exploit the situation for their own gain. A recent report from The Blaze outlined how China attempted to use a request from France to gain entry for their technology products into the country.
China has the medical supplies the world needs and is holding them ransom to promote their personal interest. If this were President Trump, the media would be all up in arms blasting him for such actions. Instead, the main stream media is silent. This led to Sen. Tom Cotton (R, AR) to blast the media for being Chinese apologists.
China knew exactly what they were doing. The question is, exactly how much did they know in advance? Multiple reports have outlined their “research” into patient zero and that they have tracked this back to November. Some have suggested that China could have potentially had this happen as a failed bio-research experiment. I am not sure about that, but there are many questions China needs to answer.
Everyone on the left has taken the standpoint that China is not at fault. Sen. Tim Kaine (D, VA) recently argued that President Trump should quit the inflammatory China basing. Who else do you blame when all the evidence points back at China. There is a strong lesson for Americans through all of this.
We have been force fed communist ideas from the left for many years now. If Americans are paying attention, it is easily seen what this communism will get you. Many have experienced first hand the lack of a free economy. Lines to get into stores, empty shelves and purchasing limits of essential items all remind us what happens when government steps in to control day to day activities.
While their citizens were left suffering, China continued to lie about coronavirus numbers and spread. While the American response may not be perfect, our free economy allowed us to develop mass testing supplies outside of government controlled facilities. Due to this, we have identified more cases of COVID-19 than anywhere else. It’s not because we are worse off, but rather because we are better.
For the coming weeks and months, we will continue to hear how all of the coronavirus issues are President Trump’s fault. It sure is easy to second guess someone from the sidelines who is making critical decisions that affect the entire nation. Rather than concealing and hiding, President Trump has given information and hope for treatment and a cure. That’s a drastic difference from the message of China.
All of the coronavirus blame is to be placed on China. Rather than supporting the communist country through the purchase of their supplies, the world should turn the other way. President Trump was long ahead of this. He told us back in 2017 of the need to return to America for production and to focus on America first. He knew China could not be trusted. Has the lest of the world learned the same lesson?
