President Trump is leading a new initiative to remove global supply chains from China, as a result of the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) of the utter mishandling of the coronavirus, according to the Daily Wire.
“Economic destruction and the U.S. coronavirus death toll are driving a government-wide push to move U.S. production and supply chain dependency away from China, even if it goes to other more friendly nations instead, current and former senior U.S. administration officials said,” according to Reuters.
“The U.S. Commerce Department, State and other agencies are looking for ways to push companies to move both sourcing and manufacturing out of China. Tax incentives and potential re-shoring subsidies are among measures being considered to spur changes, the current and former officials told Reuters.”
Keith Krach, undersecretary for Economic Growth, Energy and the Environment at the State Department spoke with Reuters about how the United States has been working to reduce the reliance of U.S. supply chains on China, and has “now turbo-charging that initiative.”
“This moment is a perfect storm; the pandemic has crystallized all the worries that people have had about doing business with China,” a top U.S. official told Reuters.
“All the money that people think they made by making deals with China before, now they’ve been eclipsed many fold by the economic damage [from the pandemic].”
“China deliberately suppressed or destroyed evidence of the coronavirus outbreak in an ‘assault on international transparency’ that cost tens of thousands of lives, according to a dossier prepared by concerned Western governments on the COVID-19 contagion,” The Daily Telegraph reported.
“It states that to the ‘endangerment of other countries’ the Chinese government covered-up news of the virus by silencing or ‘disappearing’ doctors who spoke out, destroying evidence of it in laboratories and refusing to provide live samples to international scientists who were working on a vaccine.”

The move comes after communist China lied to the world about the outbreak in Wuhan by “intentionally conceal[ing] the severity” of the outbreak so that they could have time to hoard medical supplies from around the world that were needed to fight the virus, according to a report from the Department of Homeland Security.
A recent dossier created by the Five Eyes intelligence alliance — which is comprised of intelligence agencies from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand — stated that China knew that the coronavirus was transmissible from human-to-human in the first week of December, yet waited over six weeks before warning the world.
