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.
Regarding President Trump’s letter to Dr. Tedros, we think the US should focus on beating #COVID19 rather than give an ultimatum to the organization that leads global epidemic response. pic.twitter.com/4cvbWIje7V— Lijian Zhao ??? (@zlj517) May 20, 2020
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.
Some Western countries demand priority for tracing the origin of the virus, but the vast majority of countries believe the containment and control of #COVID19 is need of the hour. Politicizing the origin of the virus has no audience. pic.twitter.com/bWlyZ5GHN9— Lijian Zhao ??? (@zlj517) May 20, 2020
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.
#WHO is a UN specialized agency. Roughly 90% of its leadership are US experts. WHO bows to no individual or country. It serves the health and welfare of all mankind.— Hua Chunying ??? (@SpokespersonCHN) May 20, 2020
She also questioned the United States' coronavirus timeline.
US non-stop disinformation may confuse and mislead some for a while. But in the end facts speak for themselves.— Hua Chunying ??? (@SpokespersonCHN) May 20, 2020
Just to list a few:— Hua Chunying ??? (@SpokespersonCHN) May 20, 2020
US claimed only 1 case as Wuhan was closed on Jan23
US had 1896 cases as it declared national emergency on Mar13
US had 7087 cases as China reported 0 new domestic cases on Mar19
Now US has 1,570,583 cases&93,533 deaths
Who on earth should be accountable?
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.
Spokesman speaks stupidly on behalf of China, trying desperately to deflect the pain and carnage that their country spread throughout the world. Its disinformation and propaganda attack on the United States and Europe is a disgrace....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 21, 2020
....It all comes from the top. They could have easily stopped the plague, but they didn’t!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 21, 2020
China is on a massive disinformation campaign because they are desperate to have Sleepy Joe Biden win the presidential race so they can continue to rip-off the United States, as they have done for decades, until I came along!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 21, 2020
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.
