China thought that a massive bribe would get them off the hook for their coronavirus consequences.
But they couldn’t have been more wrong.
China’s on the defensive after America hit them with this gigantic lawsuit.
America is China’s biggest export market.
Every year China exports $429 Billion dollars’ worth to America and China also holds $1.09 trillion of American government debt.
One reason why China exports so much is because since 1994 they have kept their currency, yuan, artificially low compared to the dollar.
The outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus has opened Americans’ eyes to the reality that China has gotten out of control.
Donald Trump was already trying to level the playing field and make sure that American companies weren’t competing on an unfair playing field against Chinese companies.
The Communist Chinese Government hid the scope of the outbreak for months and were insisting to WHO on January 14th that there was no evidence of human transmission when they knew that the outbreak started in November.
The numbers that the Chinese government gave were not accurate and there is some evidence that the coronavirus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
The Chinese government hasn’t yet allowed American scientists to look at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
The Chinese Government’s secrecy and lies helped the coronavirus spread and they may be completely responsible for the global pandemic that has cost 50,000 Americans their lives and 26 million Americans their jobs.
China needs to pay and Missouri is the first state to bring a lawsuit against them.
According to the Daily Wire:
China called on the United States to dismiss a lawsuit brought by Missouri against the Asian country for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
“This so-called lawsuit is very absurd and has no factual and legal basis at all,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily briefing Wednesday.
Geng claimed China has been “open” and “transparent” since the outbreak began.
Missouri’s top state prosecutor announced the lawsuit Tuesday, alleging Chinese officials are to blame for the health crisis that has infected more than 2.5 million worldwide and stunted economies. Attorney General Eric Schmitt accused the Chinese government of lying about the dangers of the virus.
“The Chinese government lied to the world about the danger and contagious nature of COVID-19, silenced whistleblowers, and did little to stop the spread of the disease,” he said. “They must be held accountable for their actions.”
Johns Hopkins reported that more than 200 people have died in Missouri from the virus.
Not only should the American government rethink the relationship that they have with China but every American consumer has it within their power to stop sending their money to China.
Boycotting goods made in China, if possible, is a good way to keep American dollars out of their hands.
China’s government may be responsible for a virus that has hurt America but we are strong and we will do our best even in these hard times to Make America Great Again.
