In a March 1 interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News, former chief advisor to President Trump, explained that President Trump was right on the money with his shutdown of travel from China in the early days of the Coronavirus. Meanwhile, Bannon noted, Joe Biden criticized the President as xenophobic for the move. Looking back, it is easy to see that Trump was dead on!
Bannon too, noted Bartiromo, had called the COVID-19 pandemic well on his own show, the WarRoom’s coverage of the pandemic. Bartiromo later noted that China recalled supplies it had signed contracts for with America, and some supplies that did make it to the U.S. were broken, or ineptly made.
Bannon reminded viewers that Trump had recognized the perils of outsourcing manufacturing to China well before his campaign and throughout it. Bannon recalled the phrase “The China price comes at a huge cost.” Bannon then told viewers that Trump’s entire China thesis was to bring back supply chains to democracies. Watch the clip below:
