In The American Spectator, R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. urges President Trump to remind Americans of the origins of the Wuhan Virus and the deceitful actions of the Chinese Communist Party. He writes (abridged):
When the Chinese authorities smartened up, they curtailed all flights from Wuhan to other parts of China but not flights from Wuhan to other parts of the world, for instance, to Europe and to America. By the time the rest of the world had caught on that something was amiss in Wuhan, as many as one and a half million passengers had left Wuhan for the outside world.
Donald Trump had the good sense to shut down air travel from China to America on January 31. The rest of the world was more dilatory. As a result of the president’s alertness, a hostile press and his Democratic opponents called him a racist, a xenophobe.
The president might take note that the charges of xenophobia and racism did not go over very well with the American people. Frankly, I believe that the American people do not have a very high opinion of the Chinese government It is because China’s business practices are not on the up-and-up. Moreover, the Chinese government is communist.
Back in 2019, 57 percent of the American people polled thought the Chinese were up to no good. More recently, according to a Gallup poll taken in February, that figure was up to 67 percent. That was before the American people discovered that China has been exporting the Wuhan virus or the coronavirus
I think it would be wise of you to remind the American people of your early acts during the pandemic. The Democrats attacked you as a racist and a xenophobe. The Democrats attacked you for shutting down air travel from China.
No one was quicker to attack you for shutting down air travel than Sleepy Joe. His policies have been Open Borders and Open Skies.
