• At Least One Clear Coronavirus Villain Emerging: Chinese Gov’t

    Surge Summary: For months, China’s duplicitous conduct re the coronavirus was reprehensible, and now the world – including especially the U.S. – is paying the price. When President Trump took action to limit travel from that nation in January, he was lambasted by the Left and the media, but his judgment on that matter has been vindicated. When the dust settles, China must be held accountable.

    On January 31st, the Trump Administration declared a national health emergency and extended its travel ban to China.  The political left and its media allies immediately attacked the president.

    The very same day, Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted that she was calling up legislation (the No Ban Act) to prevent the president from imposing “such biased and bigoted restrictions.”

    As the nation debates appropriate responses to the coronavirus, the president often brings up his border security efforts and he’s right to do so.  Here’s what we must not forget:  China knew as far back as November that it was confronting a virulent outbreak.

    From its previous experience, it had to know that it was a coronavirus.  China’s communist leaders lied to their own people.  As the virus spread, they continued to lie to their own people and they made no effort to give necessary information to the rest of the world.

    Meanwhile, what was going on from November to January 31st?  More than 8,200 Chinese were flying to the United States each and every day.  Three million Chinese visit the U.S. every year.  Many of them travel through California and Washington state.

    When Donald Trump was presented with the evidence of what was happening with the virus, he was the first world leader to institute a serious travel ban.  When he did it, he was attacked by the left for being a racist, a bigot, and a xenophobe.  And he was attacked by the media again today for referring to the virus from China as a “Chinese virus.”

    I can only imagine what the Chinese thought watching the left’s hysterical reaction.  They knew how deadly the virus was.  They knew that thousands of Chinese were flying to the U.S. every day, some of whom were obviously sick and bringing the virus to the U.S.

    They must have laughed watching the “useful idiots” — half of our political establishment and much of our media establishment — condemning Trump rather than communist China for what was happening every day since November.

    By the way, new polling shows that 80% of Americans support Trump’s travel restrictions.  That may explain why Pelosi abandoned her plans to pass the No Ban Act, which 219 House Democrats have co-sponsored.  Something to remember in November.
