Former President Donald Trump vowed to demand a global summit on pandemic reparations from Communist China if elected president in 2024.
The former president laid out his bold policy initiatives in which he said he would once again remove the United States from the World Health Organization (WHO).
“Now 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 all of humanity,” Trump said.
Trump also recalled how his prediction that the pandemic originated from a lab was called ‘racist,’ a ‘conspiracy theory’ at the time. But now, evidence suggests Trump was right again.
As Trump wrote in The Daily Mail:
Three years ago, I declared that COVID-19 almost certainly came from the Chinese Wuhan lab. Now, the world is finally admitting the truth.
The cover-up of COVID-19’s origins is one of the greatest scandals in the history of the world. Millions of people all over the planet have died from the China Virus.
The cost of the outbreak and the lying about its origins is incalculable, some say in excess of $50 trillion.
Now 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 all of humanity.
The U.S. Department of Energy concluded last week the Wuhan lab leak is the likely cause of the pandemic. The FBI reached the same conclusion. The facts are now plain for all to see.
Again Trump was right.
The department’s finding, which came in an update to a document from the office of national intelligence director, Avril Haines, was followed by an FBI who said they had “moderate confidence” the virus spread after leaking out of a Chinese laboratory.
Meanwhile, Chinese officials disputed that Covid-19 could have leaked from its labs, including the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Wuhan Institute of Biological Products.
Finally, now that the evidence of Chinese culpability is clear to all, we must hold China financially responsible for unleashing this plague upon the world.
Joe Biden will not do this. Biden is unbelievably weak on China—perhaps because his family has received millions of dollars from entities linked to the Chinese Communist Party.
Yet the need for accountability remains. China’s deceptions and lies in the critical early phrase of the outbreak are well documented.
For example, they long insisted to the world that the virus could not spread from human to human.
They bought up vast quantities of PPE from all over the planet, while lying to other countries about the characteristics of the virus and the severity of the outbreak.
Their lies and deception killed any opportunity to stop this deadly global catastrophe at the start.
Add to that the probability that the virus emerged from a Chinese government lab, and may even have been engineered by Chinese government scientists, and it is clear that the nations of the world are not just owed a massive apology; they are owed massive damages.
To collect this compensation, nothing should be off the table—tariffs, taxes, and a global summit on reparations.
The World must ensure that such a tragedy never happens again!
