According to this article, the Chinese have threatened the US in a dangerous, unacceptable way. According to the article, “In an article in Xinhua, the state-run media agency that’s largely considered the mouthpiece of the party, Beijing bragged about its handling of COVID-19, a virus that originated in the city of Wuhan and has spread quickly around the world, killing nearly 5,000 people and infecting thousands more. The article also claimed that China could impose pharmaceutical export controls which would plunge America into ‘the mighty sea of coronavirus.'”

Mike Bloomberg and Joe Biden are China sympathizers. They’ve partnered to defeat President Trump. Considering Bloomberg’s and Biden’s China first policies, this morning’s news is unacceptable. This news is particularly worrisome considering how dismissive Joe Biden has been. This video is the height of dismissiveness:

President Trump took tons of criticism from Democrats for slapping tariffs on China. He was right in exposing the Chinese manufacturing dominance. If not for the efforts of President Trump, we wouldn’t have learned about the US’s reliance on China for our health care needs:

Though the United States is a global leader in research, much of the manufacturing of life-saving drugs has moved overseas. The last American manufacturing plant to make a key component in penicillin shuttered in 2004. Since then, Chinese pharmaceuticals companies have moved in and taken over, supplying between 80 percent and 90 percent of U.S. antibiotics, 70 percent of acetaminophen and about 40 percent of heparin, according to Yanzhong Huang, a senior fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations.

This situation must be fixed immediately. Joe Biden has kissed China’s backside too often to stand up to China. It requires a president with a titanium spine, which President Trump has, to fix this situation. President Trump already has stood up to China. It’s a certainty that he’d stand up to them again. It’s virtually certain that Biden wouldn’t stand up to them.

Sen. Marco Rubio is aware of the problem:

Rubio said Beijing’s comments should concern all Americans and that China is keenly aware that in a moment of crisis “they can threaten to cut us off from our pharmaceutical supplies, they could trigger a domestic problem here that would make it difficult or us to confront them.” “It’s a tremendous amount of leverage,” Rubio said.

It’s time the US stood up to China once and for all. They need us much more than we need them. Let’s teach them that we’re totally willing to use leverage against them by pulling our manufacturing plants out of China. With China’s economy on the rocks, let’s see who blinks first. We’ve already seen who blinked first the last time during the Phase One trade talks.

Our health systems are superior to China’s. We have plenty of raw materials, manufacturing capacity and innovation, too. If China wants to get into a fight over this, let’s let them know in no uncertain terms that they’d better prepare to lose that fight.
