Some Republicans Pushing Trump Admin to Take Tougher Stance on China

Some members of the GOP are pushing the Trump administration to take a tougher stance on China following their negligence amid the coronavirus outbreak.

According to The Hill:

The fallout from the coronavirus is shaking up the U.S.-China relationship on Capitol Hill, as a group of hawkish lawmakers fiercely criticize Beijing’s response to the disease.

Republicans are pushing for their colleagues and the Trump administration to take a more aggressive stance toward Beijing, which they say downplayed the virus’s danger.

China’s government has become a target for criticism for Republicans, along with the World Health Organization (WHO). President Trump on Tuesday said he would halt funding to that organization.

“We have seen them, along with the WHO, hide the coronavirus, not tell us the full story, not give us the full scope of the problem in China, and that has led to a hugely deleterious outcome,” Rep. Trey Hollingsworth (R-Ind.) said Tuesday in an interview with WIBC, an Indiana radio station.

Senator Marsha Blackburn has publically blamed China for over 100,000 deaths.

I agree with “some republicans” with regard to being tougher on China. While I understand with President Trump’s evident strategy to promote a China relationship, It should also be understood that China was never and never will be a friend to any or all freedoms enjoyed by the non Communist world, least of all to the USA. Only insofar as China Communists think they can take advantage of the free world will they ever cooperate in any way political, financial, or religious. Do not be misled by a seeming good nature of some Chinese persons including President Xi. ALL Chinese Communists seek world domination and will do anything to achieve it including lie, deceive, steal, and kill.

The CCP and the WHO are complicit in the deliberate falsifying and withholding of critical virus information from the World causing the escalation of the Coronavirus pandemic throughout most of the effected areas.

The US is heavily infiltrated by Chinese operatives, they have heavy influence on the WHO, CDC, NIH, media, politicians, colleges, sports and Hollywood. Almost everything in every store is made in China. China has purchased most of our debt. They own us to a great extent. They intend to take us completely without firing a shot. Say Thanks to your traitorous politicians and the multi national corporations that own them. Bill and Melinda Gates think that you are a useless eater and need to be exterminated. Get ready to roll up your sleeve and be tracked!

You didn’t mention that China owns the food network in the US. Proof? Look at South Dakota. A state with less than a million people in it. Yet, Smithfield, the country’s largest meat processor is not only owned by the Chinese because Obama, Clinton and Biden let them buy it, but the virus has become a hot spot at the plant in Sioux Falls because their Chinese owners who come from Wuhan visited there during the outbreak!

I agree. I have preached concerning the broad influence of the chiness government for over 20-years. I saw what was happening, but I was considered over-bearing. So, now we buy china crap not so cheap now and when it breaks we get to buy it again. Double your pleasure.
