Popular GOP Senator Marsha Blackburn exposed the hardcore truth about the Chinese government’s nefarious plot to take our jobs and give the United States this terrible virus. You don’t want to miss this.

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” Wednesday that it is essential that the U.S. holds China’s feet to the fire over the coronavirus outbreak.

Blackburn has been one of the most critical voices in the Senate about China and has proposed a bill that would bring back pharmaceutical manufacturing to the U.S.

“So basically what has happened is that China took all our jobs and they sent back to us a virus,” she said.

Blackburn said that there is evidence that Beijing knew about the virus outbreak in Wuhan for 51 days before issuing an alert. Many Republicans claim that precious time was lost that could have been devoted to preparing for the virus.

The U.S. is still skeptical of death-toll reports from Beijing and takes the data at face value. It has been widely reported that the CIA is working through spies to get a more accurate read on the true death toll from the country.

“China needs to pay for this,” Blackburn said. “They need to admit that this was their mistake.”

She said she has a resolution that would declare that the U.S. Senate recognizes that China “started this; then they lied about it; then they weren’t transparent.”

Blackburn has said Americans are raising concerns after China said it may withhold effective medications from the U.S. in the fight against the virus.

She said many Americans are unhappy with reports that Beijing withheld pertinent information about the virus in its early stages and its decision to be “less than transparent” on where the virus originated.

“We have been disappointed in what we’ve seen from China,” she said. “And now we have a global pandemic.”

Trump also accused the World  Health Organization of being “very China-centric” and suggested that the WHO had been played by China and pushed into going along with Beijing’s efforts to minimize the severity of the outbreak, which morphed from a few cases in Wuhan, China, into a global pandemic.

Senator Blackburn isn’t the only GOP lawmaker ripping the cozy relationship between China and the WHO.

“I’m not going to support funding the WHO under its current leadership,” South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

“They’ve been deceptive. They’ve been slow and they’ve been Chinese apologists,” he added.

Federalist reporter Tim Andrews also weighed in: “The reason for the WHO’s failure to properly act to contain the outbreak, and its repeated issuing of inaccurate and bad advice, is not merely the result of incompetence. Rather, the malfeasance is the direct result of the CCP deliberately buying out WHO’s leadership, with tragic consequences.”

Making matters worse, Bejing just lifted travel restrictions from Wuhan and is claiming they have no new cases of COVID-19. “According to Chinese state media, over 7,000 people boarded airplanes and flew out of Wuhan, source of the global coronavirus pandemic, on the first day after its two-month lockdown was lifted,” Breitbart reports. 

One might think the CCP is hoping to start a second outbreak. Thank God the president has banned travel from China.

Global Times editorial on Wednesday applauded Wuhan for rising “like a phoenix” from the coronavirus lockdown, celebrating long lines at airports and train stations while trashing Western media suspicious of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) claims that absolutely no one is catching the virus in Wuhan anymore.

“The Taiwanese, whose response to the coronavirus was the most effective in the world, are clearly not taking China’s claims of zero infections in Wuhan or Hubei at face value. RFA noted Taiwanese experts are particularly suspicious of the asymptomatic carriers, whose number and potential for infecting others they believe the CCP is dangerously underestimating,” Breitbart adds.

There is something extremely troubling about this virus which originates in China right after President Trump has eaten the CCP’s lunch in a huge trade war, and as a result, American companies start to flee China. Those U.S. jobs were starting to come back to America.

Then, we have the WHO, funded by the Chinese, keeping the true nature of the outbreak secret until it’s too late. We have big players in this crisis like Dr. Anthony Fauci refusing to disavow the WHO. President Trump is well aware of what is going on, and now Americans must back him so we can end the economic shutdown and get our country up and running again.
