President Trump fought hard to craft a good trade deal between the U.S. and China.
But it’s clear that China is not interested in playing fair with the U.S. They banned U.S. carriers from flying to China.
So, Trump is retaliating, and it’s going to hurt the communist nation.
From Fox News:
The Department of Transportation (DOT) on Wednesday issued an order banning China’s airlines from operating passenger flights to and from the U.S. as of mid-June…
The DOT explained that its decision comes as a response to China denying U.S. carriers to resume flights to China as global travel restrictions begin easing amid the coronavirus health crisis.
In response to China violating the U.S.-China Air Transport Agreement, the president is preparing to ban all flights from Chinese airlines.
The ban might come in as early as June 16, perhaps earlier.
This ban appears to only target four Chinese carriers, not all travel from China. While a travel ban is in place, Americans could still fly back from the foreign country.
This ban specifically prohibits Chinese-owned airlines from operating in the United States. It has less to do with the virus and more to do with China’s ongoing hostilities toward America.
Even as travel begins to resume worldwide, China refused to deny U.S. carriers to resume flights. That’s pretty rich, considering it was China that let the virus spread around the world.
But we know China has denied responsibility for the pandemic, even a little bit. They even accused the United States of creating the outbreak, despite the fact it obviously came from Wuhan.
China is desperate to worm out of owing the world for what it did. They were silent as the virus hit foreign shores.
To save face, they seem to be pointing the finger on the United States. WHO and other global organizations appear willing to protect China and promote its propaganda.
Should we keep letting them profit off of us, under these circumstances?
China needs to learn it just can’t bully the world into doing what it wants. There are consequences for their actions.
In the past, U.S. leaders rolled over like puppies to please China (Joe Biden did it all the time). But not today.
Donald Trump is holding China’s feet to the fire. And if they want to profit around the world, they’ll be held accountable for its actions.
