WH Trade Adviser: China Used COVID-19 to Crash U.S. Economy in 60 Days
Peter Navarro said China had essentially ruined America’s economy
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said China had essentially ruined America’s economy due to their poor handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Navarro said:
“We know that patient zero in China was about mid-November. It was in Wuhan. We know that ground zero had the P-4 weapons lab, where the virus likely came from."
"For the next two months, we know that China hid the virus from the world behind the shield of the World Health Organization,” Navarro said.
“And, as they did that, they sent gleaming passenger jets from China, not into the rest of China from Wuhan, but to places like New York and Milan, seeding the world with what would become a pandemic.”
As Neon nettle reported in April, a leaked document revealed When China was aware of the COVID-19 outbreak had become a "severe" "epidemic."
Xi Jinping knew of the severity of the virus at the same time the World Health Organization insisted there no “evidence of human-to-human transmission.”
China knew as early as January 14 that the “risk of transmission and spread” was “high."

“As they did that, we also know, Maria, from their own customs data, that they vacuumed up virtually all of the world’s personal protective equipment, including over two billion masks,” Navarro continued.
“And we also know that, today, what China is doing, sitting on that stockpile of what we call PPE, is, they are selling it at profiteering prices to some, and, to other countries, they are actually putting pressure on those countries to deny the virus came from China or to talk about Taiwan or to do other things.”
“So, that’s it in a nutshell. And what that means for us here is, this morning, Americans won’t go to church because of the China virus," he added.
"Sons and daughters of America won’t be taking their mothers to brunch. Tomorrow, 33 million Americans won’t be going to work, and millions of children in America will be home climbing the walls, instead of learning reading, writing, and arithmetic,” Navarro said.
“So, that’s the China problem that we face. President Trump built the most powerful and beautiful economy in the world in three years.”
“The Chinese Communist Party took it down in 60 days,” Navarro added.
Navarro's comments come weeks after Us Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revealed the government had "enormous evidence" that the coronavirus pandemic originated in a lab in Wuhan, China.
