A prominent Democratic Super PAC was caught perpetuating Chinese propaganda on Tuesday. PrioritiesUSA, which will also serve as Joe Biden’s primary fundraising interest group, unveiled an ad criticizing President Trump for his handling of COVID-19, while regurgitating the false information given by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Donald Trump has finally put "America first."— Priorities USA (@prioritiesUSA) April 28, 2020
America has the most coronavirus cases.
America has the most coronavirus deaths.
26 million Americans have lost their jobs.
Donald Trump is failing America. pic.twitter.com/Me625uPqeQ
As the Trump campaign points out, the ad presents the death toll given by the Chinese. It has been proven that the CCP was negligent about the initial spread of coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, and covered up the virus’s outbreak to mitigate international criticism.
According to Johns Hopkins University's Coronavirus Resource Center, the U.S. ranks 6th in coronavirus deaths per 100,000 population, but that does not account for obviously false numbers from China. https://t.co/6m8m7e0jkn pic.twitter.com/0YmntS6QzM— Trump War Room - Text TRUMP to 88022 (@TrumpWarRoom) April 28, 2020
The PAC’s ad claims that President Trump did not put America first during COVID-19, but between banning travel to and from China and taking advice from medical experts including Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, PrioritiesUSA gets it wrong, again. The division that this ad encourages sows the exact kind of partisan divides the CCP would love to see.
