Chinese Communist Party officials are taking to Twitter to pump out a new round of propaganda surrounding the Wuhan coronavirus. They have repeatedly attempted to blame the United States for the virus that ravaged the world, even though it began in the Hubei province. 

According to Lijian Zhao, the spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry's Information Department, the U.S. is "contradicting facts" and is playing a blame game that "compromises international cooperation against the virus" when President Trump provided the World Health Organization with an ultimatum. Trump told the WHO if significant reforms were not made in the next 30 days, the U.S. would permanently pull funding from the organization. Specifically, Trump wants to see that the WHO is independent of China and the Chinese Communist Party.

Zhao says "the international community" was "shocked" by Trump's letter and greatly disapproved of what he said.

Zhao also went on to say that countries are more worried about controlling the Wuhan coronavirus, instead of tracing its origins. Those who want to discover where the virus began are politicizing the virus, which "has no audience," the spokesman said. 

Hua Chunying, the Foreign Ministry Spokesperson and Director-General for the Chinese Department of Information, rebuked Trump's claim that the WHO is heavily influenced by the Chinese Communist Party.  

She also questioned the United States' coronavirus timeline.

President Trump hit back at CCP officials, saying they're purposefully trying to deflect China's responsibility by promoting disinformation and attacking the United States and Europe for the coronavirus.

China can continue pumping out propaganda but people around the world see through their nonsense. The fact that doctors and reporters who blew the whistle on this virus from inside Wuhan suddenly "disappeared" tells you everything you need to know about their shady tactics.

We also know that the WHO has an incredibly incestuous relationship with China. Their ties run so deep that President Xi Jinping personally asked Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to delay publishing vital information about the Wuhan coronavirus. Specifically, Xi wanted the WHO to not tell the world that the coronavirus was transmitted from person-to-person. 

China also waited six days to tell the world about the fact that the virus transmitted from human-to-human. On top of that, the WHO continually parrotted that talking point and Tedros wanted to applaud China for their initial response to the virus.
