For the first time in a couple of months, President Trump spoke directly to the nation and suggested that China pay reparations for causing the COVID pandemic.
In his speech, last night at the North Carolina GOP convention President Trump did what he does best.
He outlined the current state of affairs in this country today. We all know that things have become somewhat dire since he left office.
We have watched things fall apart in the middle east. Hackers have taken control of both a major pipeline and a meatpacking company putting our energy and food supplies at risk. And, the economy has become stagnant despite Biden’s claims we are quickly recovering from the China virus pandemic.
Throughout the entire pandemic, we were told that the virus originated from either a bat or a pangolin. In fact, if anyone dared question the origin of the virus we were told that we were racist.
Fast forward a year later and it’s looking an awful lot like the “conspiracy theorists” who claimed the virus came from a lab in Wuhan are being vindicated.
In walks President Trump. In one of his first speaking engagements since leaving office, he drops a bombshell.
He states that China should pay directly for what they have done to the United States via the virus that came from a lab in Wuhan.
According to Breitbart,
Former President Donald Trump delivered a strong message against China on Saturday, blaming the country for the coronavirus pandemic.
The former president spoke about China in a speech to North Carolina Republicans, demanding that China pay “reparations” to the world for the devastation caused by the pandemic.
“We should all declare with one unified voice that China must pay. They must pay,” Trump said as the crowd cheered and applauded.
He proposed that all nations should join the United States in demanding that China pay for the effect of the virus.
“All nations should work together to present China a bill for a minimum of $10 trillion to compensate for the damage,” he said.
Trump also said nations should join together and cancel the debt they owe to China as a “down payment” for reparations to the world.
“The nations of the world should no longer owe money to China,” Trump said.
He also called for the United States to enact a “firm 100 percent tariff on all goods made in China.”
The former president noted that Biden and the Democrats were staunchly opposed to his tariffs on China, but after they won power, they did leave them in place.
He called for further tariffs on goods coming to the United States from China.
“Frankly if you raise them, they would stop building their military, companies would return to the United States,” he said.
Trump said the Chinese were “very genius, very smart” although he had a good relationship with Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping before the pandemic.
“I don’t think they want to keep Biden happy. I don’t think they care too much about Biden, to be honest,” he added.
Trump pointed out that even his biggest critics were starting to acknowledge the lab-leak theory of the origin of the coronavirus.
