Trump calls for 'retribution' against China for role in COVID-19 pandemic:
Trump says China's alleged coverup of COVID-19's origins is a scandal second only to the virus itself
Former President Trump is calling for China to face "retribution" for its role in the COVID-19 pandemic, claiming that he was right all along about the virus leaking out of a Wuhan lab.
In a campaign video released Friday, the former president and declared candidate for the White House in 2024 took credit for being right about the lab-leak theory after the U.S. Department of Energy concluded with "low confidence" that it was the most likely explanation for where the virus came from.
"Three years ago, I declared that the China virus almost certainly came from the Wuhan lab. Now, the world is finally admitting the truth then — they're saying I was right," Trump says. "The coverup of COVID-19's origins is one of the greatest scandals in the history of the world. The greatest scandal is COVID itself, however."
The GOP 2024 front-runner said it's time "to hold China and the corrupt forces who have facilitated this colossal suppression of facts accountable for the damage they have inflicted upon the world and all humanity. We have to do something about it. There has to be some form of retribution."
Republicans are calling for China to answer for its conduct during the pandemic as critics have accused the Chinese regime of "stonewalling" efforts to investigate the origins of the virus. --->READ MORE HERE

Chinese officials knowingly permitted COVID-19 virus to spread around the world
State 'competitors' don't deliberately spread deadly viruses
According to the Biden administration’s 2022 National Security Strategy, because the Cold War “is definitely over,” we now live in a “new era of competition.” We are competing with China in this new era as a “strategic competitor.” This approach didn’t make sense because the Cold War has been over for 30 years, and America’s major rivals, Russia and China, behave mostly like rogue state adversaries rather than competitors
But the fallacy of calling China a competitor is even starker when one considers that the Chinese government knowingly allowed the deadly COVID-19 virus to spread worldwide.
This was a criminal act, not an example of nation-state competition.
U.S. intelligence agencies are finally coming around to the obvious conclusion that the COVID-19 virus leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. Some U.S. intelligence agencies disagree or can’t decide. Some non-U.S. government experts believe the virus was developed as a Chinese bioweapon. But there is no disagreement that reckless decisions by Beijing after the outbreak in Wuhan greatly contributed to the rapid spread of the virus around the world and made it much harder to combat.
These irresponsible decisions included secretly locking down Chinese cities and restricting domestic travel after realizing the severity of the virus in January 2020 while promoting international travel to and from China until March 2020.
Chinese officials tried to deflect attention from its internal lockdowns in early 2020 by lying about the severity of the virus and claiming there was no evidence of person-to-person transmission. They also spread disinformation that the virus originated outside of China and was brought to China by the U.S. military. --->READ MORE HERE
