China’s government thought it got away with trying to coverup the coronavirus origins.
But while China may have fooled the Fake News Media with its lies and propaganda, the same can’t be said for President Trump.
And the world is waiting to see what happens next after President Trump just fired a warning shot over China’s bow.
Lies and propaganda are central to communist China’s plan for escaping accountability over the coronavirus pandemic.
First they tried to outright cover up the outbreak in November and December.
By January, it was clear that wasn’t working, but China lied to the world and convinced the World Health Organization there was no evidence of transmission between humans.
When that fell apart and the outbreak began to spread globally, the Chinese government waged a disinformation campaign in the press, sowing conspiracy theories that the coronavirus originated in a U.S. military experiment.
Experts are now pointing the finger at China’s lies and propaganda for causing the global pandemic.
If the Chinese government had acknowledged the threat even three weeks earlier, the entire outbreak may have been contained in Wuhan and 95 percent of the cases could have been eliminated.
At a recent White House press briefing, CBS correspondent Paula Reid asked the President if China would pay a price for their lies and propaganda.
The President quickly replied Reid was the last person he would inform about that decision, but that “China will find out.”
“I wouldn’t tell you. China will find out. Why would I tell you?” the President explained. “How do you know there are no consequences? You’re going to find out. I wouldn’t tell you. You’re probably the last person on Earth that I would tell.”
Republicans have called for the President to deny Chinese students the ability to study in American universities and cancel America’s debt owed to China.
And there is now a growing global consensus that China should pay for their dishonesty and negligence in allowing the coronavirus to sweep over the world.
There is little doubt President Trump is going to follow through with his statement.
