Peter Navarro said that the United States was “progressing” nicely when the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “hit us with this deadly virus, this armed virus.” His statement comes after it was revealed that the president was “still in touch” with Beijing over a phase one trade deal despite his harsh criticism of Xi Jinping’s handling of the pandemic.
“And I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the first year that China experienced a falling economy was the same year now that they are chasing us in all kinds of ways.
“And Joe Biden is the Chinese Communist Party candidate.
“Trump, buy American.” Biden, buy China. ”
There is no evidence that Mr. Biden is in any way supported by the ruling Chinese party.
Dr. Navarro’s claim about human-made illness in a laboratory has not been substantiated by scientific research.
Twitter users reprimanded her for saying it was “dangerous.”

Another said it was a “dangerous claim for Trump.”
And a third turned against the Trump administration for its management of the national epidemic.
The person tweeted, “Let’s play for a moment that this statement is true.
“The question then becomes, how did this administration manage this? “
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Monday that President Trump was not in a good mood about China because of the coronavirus pandemic, new Hong Kong security laws and the treatment of Uyghurs, but the country was still part of the first phase of its massive trade agreement with China.
He told Fox Business Network: “We are still committed to the phase one trade agreement.
“I think this is an important point: we are still committed to it. “
Meanwhile, the United States has hardened its stance on China’s disputed claims over offshore resources in most of the South China Sea.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, “Beijing’s claims to offshore resources in much of the South China Sea are completely illegal, as is its campaign to intimidate them. “
