Entering New Era With China
The Covid-19 disease, or Chinese Virus, is one of the many diseases to have come from China in the past few decades or so, please see: SARS and Avian Flu. These diseases are a product of their exotic animal markets, but the spread is purely a function of the dysfunction and corrupt nature of the Chinese government. Can you even believe that there are high level Chinese officials trying to blame covid 19 on America- their country is out of control and we have gotten too comfortable with relying on them for our supply chain.
Thankfully Trump has made the US less reliant on China for our supply chain with many products now being manufactured in Vietnam, Cambodia, etc. However, we need to ensure that our nation is never reliant on the corrupt Chinese ever again- or ANY country for that matter. Free trade is good for the textbooks, but when national security is at hand, we need to draw the line somewhere.
I think we need to place heavy sanctions on China when this all settles, and renegotiate the trade agreement- China needs to pay for the horrors that it has brought to the world. I know I am not the only one who shares this sentiment and a rapidly growing portion of the US and World is realizing the evil of the Chinese corrupt government. It will only be time until they are finally confronted over this after everything passes over.
