The White House is pushing back against a claim from China that it leads the world in global health aid.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

The Trump administration is aggressively working to counter China’s claims that it has overtaken the United States as a global health aid leader, with a senior administration official telling the Washington Free Beacon that Beijing’s newfound generosity is part of an effort to distract the world from its early cover-up of the coronavirus.


Western media outlets have praised China in recent weeks for pledging some $2 billion over the next two years in global health aid, fueling claims that the Communist regime is poised to overtake America as the world’s leading aid provider.

The White House is aggressively denying the claim, pointing to the fact that China still borrows more money from the United States and international donors than it has pledged to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

“China is trying to claim the mantle of leadership for the world while it’s also coming hat in hand to the U.S. taxpayer and other industrialized nations’ taxpayers,” a senior administration official told the Free Beacon, speaking only on background about the administration’s efforts to challenge China’s narrative.

The administration pointed out that the US donates around 40% of what the world allocates to those issues. This totals $9.9 billion while the rest of the world combined gives $16 billion.

The liberal’s of the world think if we all wish for a “Star Trec kumbaya” world, it will come, NOT with China, Iran, zealots of all creeds and color. President Trump is my HERO, standing tall for our civilization.

China doesn’t help in anything! It will be a good day when most, if not all, countries let China know that they will no longer deal with the country until it chooses to behave in a rational, satisfactory manner!
