Trump Supports Reparations?
Former President Donald Trump has long held to the idea that reparations are undeserved and unneeded here in the United States. Or at least, thatâs what we thought.
But as of this past weekend, Trump announced that America now needs them.
Well, because heâs not talking about reparations as youâve likely thought of them in the past.
When you hear the word reparations, you, no doubt, think of the political leftâs belief that some form of payment should be made to living relatives of black Americans who endured slavery in the United States. Â To be clear, Trump is still very much against this.
Instead, he told America this past weekend that âreparationsâ should be paid to America, and the world as a whole by China, as they have now been officially named as the reason COVID-19 and its subsequent pandemic spread.
Now, this is far from the first time Trump has suggested such. You might remember when the virus first hit our shores, then-President Trump almost immediately began to blame China and its communist party for the diseaseâs spread.
He even went so far as to refer to COVID-19 on multiple occasions as the âChina virus.â Additionally, he told Americans that if he were given another four years in the White House, he would work to make China pay for the troubles they had allowed to ravage the world.
Of course, with hopes of ousting their arch-enemy Trump from office during the election year, the political left used Trumpâs words against him, lambasting him as a racist and white supremacist.
But now, with Trump out of office and evidence mounting by the day of Chinaâs crimes, the left is being forced to admit that our former president was right. It is Chinaâs fault, and Dr. Anthony Fauci and his friends were wrong.
Trump said this as well in his Saturday night speech at the North Carolina Republican state convention. In fact, thatâs how his discussion on reparations began â with saying that Fauci had ânever been more wrong.â
According to aÂ Rev.com transcriptÂ of Trumpâs speech, he said, âFauci has, perhaps, never been more wrong than when he denied the virus and where it came from. The time has come for America and the world to demand reparations and accountability from the Communist Party of China. We should all declare with one unified voice that China must pay. They must pay.â
Last week, afterÂ emails from Dr. Fauci,Â were released proving that he had known about the truth of COVID-19 origins and had denied it, Trump sent out emails of his own to supporters suggesting that China must be held responsible and that they must pay.
He wrote, âNow everyone, even the so-called âenemy,â are beginning to say that President Trump was right about the China Virus coming from the Wuhan Lab. The correspondence between Dr. Fauci and China speaks too loudly for anyone to ignore. China should pay Ten Trillion Dollars to America, and the World, for the death and destruction they have caused!â
In his speech from the weekend, Trump suggested that this sum be paid to America and other nations using tariffs. He said, âThe United States should immediately take steps to phase in a firm 100 percent tariff on all goods made in China.â
Of course, as Trump is no longer the president nor a seat holder in any public office, he doesnât really have any authority to make this happen. Instead, all he can do is suggest, hoping that current leaders will consider his advice at the very least.
But, of course, it seems unlikely that Democratic President Joe Biden will be making any moves in that direction.
As of now, all heâs done on the matter of coronavirus origins is to ask âthe intelligence community to redouble their efforts to collect and analyze information that could bring us closer to a definitive conclusion and report back to me in 90 days.â
When those 90 days are up, who knows what, if anything, Biden will do with such information.
And if that isnât unsatisfying enough for you, Bidenâs White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently made it known that in order to gain such information on the origins of COVID-19, theÂ White House would be working withÂ none other than the WHO, you know, the very same organization that helped Fauci and others hide the origins in the first place.
Suffice it say, Bidenâs more likely to give China a prize at this point than any consequencesâ¦
