Finally: GOP Reps Clap Back At Chinese Govt For Lying To The World About COVID
There are still numerous States in some form of lockdown causing many Americans concern over how they are going to put food on the table. Although Dems are putting a stranglehold on our economy, refusing to end their over-restrictive lockdowns, it is not completely their fault. The true culprit that put us all in this position is of course China. The Chinese failed to contain this virus and didn't warn anyone until it had already spread beyond their country. GOP Reps have also noticed that China was negligent and pushing for Sanctions against them.
"Three Republican members of Congress are pushing the Trump administration to sanction individual Chinese government officials over what they call their "duplicitous, ineffective, and cruel response" to the coronavirus outbreak.
In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin obtained by Fox News, Reps. Jim Banks, R-Ind., Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, and Lance Gooden, R-Texas, called for the use of the Global Magnitsky Act – which lets the U.S. sanction human rights abusers – to target specific Chinese officials without punishing the country as a whole. The letter singles out 10 officials with the Chinese Communist Party.
“We believe their actions violated the 2005 International Health Regulations, the human rights of their citizens, and basic principles of fairness and responsibility in international relations,” the letter said.
The congressmen detail a variety of allegations including the detention, interrogation, and reprimand of eight doctors for “spreading rumors” of a virus; detaining journalists; spreading false or misleading information about the virus; accusing the U.S. military of creating and spreading it; and sending 30,000 Uyghur Muslims to factories and crowded “re-education camps” where they were at risk of infection."
China is clearly guilty on this one and should at the very least be offering to do something to make it right. These GOP Reps are not wrong to go after China. China should be punished for allowing this pandemic to happen. They have dodged responsibility at every turn. They even tried to turn it on us claiming the United States caused this at one point. But we told China years back that they needed to up their safety precautions in their labs and apparently they didn't listen.
