As scientists around the world began the painstaking process of unraveling the ins-and-outs of COVID-19, there was one thing that was almost universally agreed upon: The information that China shared with the rest of the world was a nonsensical mess.
As this novel strain of coronavirus ravaged parts of Europe, it became increasingly clear that China had severely downplayed the severity of the illness, and that the data they were sharing with the rest of the unsuspecting world was completely inadequate. This led to concerns that China had purposefully deflated the numbers in order to let the globe get caught off guard.
And this was prior to the revelation that COVID-19 may very well have been leaked from a lab near Wuhan, which would make this a coverup on the scale of the Chernobyl disaster of 1986.
Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley assured Breitbart News radio host Alex Marlow that the White House won’t be leaving any stone unturned in their investigation into this mess.
…during his Monday appearance on Breitbart News Daily, Gidley told Marlow that the president does intend to hold China accountable for its actions, but he did not provide specific planned actions yet.
“I can tell you the president–how that’s going to look and how that’s going to manifest I’m not going to get into on this show,” Gidley said. “But the president knows what’s going on here. He wants to make sure the American people are safe. He wants to make sure we can still work with nations. But the world knows now what we have been saying is fact, and China is culpable in this, and they weren’t giving us the good information. If you’re going to defeat a virus, if you’re going to defeat a plague, if you’re going to defeat pandemics, the best way to do that and the easiest way is with information and data. If there’s a country not sharing that information and that data with the world, it becomes much more difficult to get out ahead of this and to develop vaccines, to mitigate, to know how to contact trace where things have come from. Honestly, I think that even though the media at large doesn’t like the president being tough on China, even other countries now are pointing to the fact that they weren’t being truthful with the world, and that’s a serious problem for them, and that’s something we’re not going to forget.”
Several American lawmakers have already floated the idea of possible reparations being paid by China on account of their actions, and it seems that the White House may be open to that idea.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
