It’s pretty clear China has been little help during this crisis. In fact, they seem to be downright hostile.
The communist regime withheld vital information that could have saved lives. Then, one of their state-run papers even threatened America with a “mighty sea of coronavirus.”
Well, Trump is not playing games with China, anymore. And he just suggested a move that would utterly devastate the country.
From Washington Examiner:
President Trump suggested Thursday that the United States could end trade with China, claiming that doing so would benefit the U.S…
“Now, if you did, what would happen?” Trump asked. “You’d save $500 billion if you cut off the whole relationship.”
Yikes. Talk about the nuclear option! Trump discussed ways he could hold China accountable for their role in the outbreak.
One possibility was to completely end trade with the communist country.
I’m sure critics were quick to say that would hurt America more than China. But come on, do you really think we’ll miss all that cheaply made crap?
President Trump suggested ending all trade with China would help us save $500 billion.
That could include losses attributed to intellectual property theft. Not to mention manufacturing jobs that fled the U.S. years ago.
It’s hard to say if Trump will go that far. But you better believe China’s listening!
Trump mentioned he hasn’t spoken to China’s president in a while. Looks like he wants to make the communist government sweat a little bit!
The bottom line is, America can’t ignore what China did (and didn’t do). Plenty of people have discussed options for holding them accountable.
President Trump’s idea might be strict, but I bet it’s going to get China eager to play ball.
