White House trade adviser Peter Navarro this week claimed the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) ruined the United States economy in just 60 days due to its handling of the CCP virus outbreak.
Speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday, Navarro explained how the CCP engaged in a cover-up of the virus outbreak and allowed it to spread by continuing to let people from China travel to other parts of the world.
“We know that patient zero in China was about mid-November. It was in Wuhan. We know that ground zero had the P4 weapons lab, where the virus likely came from,” Navarro said.
“For the next two months, we know that China hid the virus from the world behind the shield of the World Health Organization. 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,” the economist and author explained.
Navarro said that customs data showed that the CCP also “vacuumed up virtually all of the worlds personal protective equipment, including over 2 billion masks,” and that China is “sitting on that stockpile of what we call PPE,” and “selling it at profiteering prices to some,” while also putting pressure on some countries to “deny the virus came from China or to talk about Taiwan or to do other things.”
“So thats it in a nutshell. And what that means for us here is, this morning, Americans wont go to church because of the China virus,” Navarro continued. “Sons and daughters of America wont be taking their mothers to brunch. Tomorrow, 33 million Americans wont be going to work, and millions of children in America will be home climbing the walls, instead of learning reading, writing, and arithmetic.”
The White House trade adviser concluded: “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.”
