With everything going on right now, it’s easy to forget the country is coming out of a pandemic. While cases continue to drop, many states suffer under heavy lockdowns. Millions of lives have been ruined, as businesses and institutions struggle for years to come. President Trump spoke to the United Nations, demanding the organization hold the one country responsible who is behind all this.
I know it’s been a while, but let’s recall what happened. Back in November 2019, China discovered a new virus was spreading through the region of Wuhan. Even though it was clear this disease spread rapidly, and posed a threat, China told nobody. They shut down travel within China, but allowed Chinese to leave the country.
Any doctors or journalists who tried to raise the alarm were silenced. Even the World Health Organization kept the matter quiet. As late as January, they pushed unfactual information at the behest of the communist regime.
The virus was able to spread all over the world, because of China’s silence. They even denied American doctors from the CDC to travel to Wuhan to investigate and examine samples. By March of this year, the pandemic was out of control. Fear and panic lead to cataclysmic responses from governments, which shut down economies, schools, and life as we know it.
But worst of all, the American media was complicit in refusing to hold China accountable. The left-wing media (who are largely owned by Chinese investors and companies) even called Trump racist for calling COVID the “China virus” (which was a talking point they got directly from the Chinese government).
Even now, the country is gradually coming out of this nightmare. But many just want to sweep what China did under the rug, it seems. Joe Biden has not called out China once for its obvious neglect and dishonesty. Doubt he’ll do anything to hold their feet to the fire as president.
Now, Trump is calling on the U.N. to actually demand answers from Communist China.
President Trump on Tuesday told the United Nations that it must hold China accountable for its failure to contain the coronavirus in the early days of the pandemic — and declared the World Health Organization “controlled” by Beijing.
“The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions,” Trump told the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, separately calling the virus “The China Virus.”
“In the earliest days of the virus, China locked down travel domestically while allowing flights to leave China and infect the world,” Trump said, noting also its opposition to the travel restrictions he placed on China…
Beyond the pandemic, he also called on the U.N. and others to focus on the “real problems” in the world and stop criticizing America on issues such as the environment. He said China’s carbon emissions are twice as high as the U.S.’ and accused it of dumping tons of plastic into the ocean and overfishing. [Source: Fox News]
On nearly every issue the U.N. claims to care about—from human rights to poverty to the environment to world health—China is a failure. In fact, China often deliberately harms these causes by the way its government behaves (see: COVID, pollution, and the Uyghur Muslims). Yet the United Nations has refused to hold the country accountable. Trump refuses to accept that.
There is a variety of things the U.N. can do to get recompense from China. It can remove the country from influential groups and panels. It can levy heavy sanctions on the country. U.N. nations can pass a resolution urging member states to refuse to do business with China, until the country pays back the damage it caused the world.
Not that President Trump really thinks the U.N. will do anything about it. China has the organization in its pocket. The U.N. is a corrupt globalist enterprise only interested in the wealth and power of its leaders. That is why the United States, under Trump, has cut back funding for the U.N. and withdrawn from numerous organizations within it.
The truth is, the only force that can hold China accountable for what it did is America. But only if Trump is in the White House.
