The deadly COVID-19 coronavirus is a deadly disease that has swept the globe, leaving potentially hundreds of thousands of deaths behind.
The viral disease originated in Wuhan, China, where the government was slow to act to contain and eradicate the virus.
All hell broke loose when China used coronavirus masks as a weapon.
During an interview with Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN, Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) explained how China was using the coronavirus pandemic, a crisis many believe the communist nation could have prevented, in ways to advance its national interests.
The Tennessee Republican pointed to China’s investment in United States companies under duress from the economic implications of the pandemic as a way to gain a foothold in these technologies.
Green continues to explain the horrible way that China is using the fear and devastation from a disease they could have prevented to manipulate and bribe world powers.
“Well, I’ll give you an example — in the midst of this crisis, China is buying up small companies that are having cash flow problems in the United States and then can’t continue doing business, so they liquidate the company,” Green said. “And China is buying them. They’re buying them in things like avionics and the aviation industry. I’ve got an amendment that I’m putting together that will address that issue, and keep China from acquiring those national security type of interests.”
Green also noted how China was offering masks to European nations in exchange for implementing its highly controversial Huawei 5G technology.
“Another perspective — China is telling countries in Europe, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll give you masks, but you have to implement our Huawei 5G system,’” Green said. “And that sort of bribery in the midst of a health care crisis really shows the true colors of who China is in this regard. But you’ll absolutely see incentives to bring home manufacturing. There will probably be increased requirements on medical facilities to maintain certain stores of medical equipment. And then, of course, the stockpiles. There will be bills that change the requirements of those stockpiles so that we’re better prepared — no doubt about it.”
The makers of Huawei are seeking to dominate the global 5G market, but with their clear ties to the communist Chinese government and political party, their technology could pose a threat to the safety and privacy of every user, and even the governments of the countries they reside in.
But China only sees profit and control.
They know the devastation that this virus is causing, and they are blackmailing world powers to provide life-saving masks and medical materials to stop the spread of a disease that originated in their country.
That is why Donald Trump has continued to fight these world powers and protect the privacy and very lives of every American citizen.
Trump has worked with American companies to find and make the resources that the country desperately needs to fight this devastating disease.
