    President Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly [Tuesday].  Like so many other events this year, the U.N. meeting was held virtually, so the president spoke from the White House.  And he wasted no time in confronting communist China.

    Just 28 words into his remarks, the president blasted Beijing for failing to contain the coronavirus pandemic that has swept the world.  Here’s an excerpt of the president’s remarks:

    “Seventy-five years after the end of World War II and the founding of the United Nations, we are once again engaged in a great global struggle.  We have waged a fierce battle against the invisible enemy — the China virus — which has claimed countless lives in 188 countries.

    “In the United States, we launched the most aggressive mobilization since the Second World War.  We rapidly produced a record supply of ventilators, creating a surplus that allowed us to share them with friends and partners all around the globe.  We pioneered life-saving treatments, reducing our fatality rate 85 percent since April.

    “Thanks to our efforts, three vaccines are in the final stage of clinical trials.  We are mass-producing them in advance so they can be delivered immediately upon arrival.”

    President Trump condemned China for shutting down domestic air travel and “locking citizens in their homes” while it allowed international flights to “infect the world.”

    He ripped the World Health Organization for parroting Beijing’s claim that there was “no evidence of human-to-human transmission, and he called on the U.N. to hold China accountable.

    But the president wasn’t done.  He also denounced China’s terrible environmental record and abusive trade practices.
