More than 77% of Americans are placing blame upon the authoritarian Communist government of China for the global coronavirus pandemic, according to a new Harris poll.

The poll draws from a sample of 1,993 American adults. Even 67% of Democrats place blame upon China for the global pandemic.

66% of Republicans state that President Trump should implement strict trade measures on China, with 38% of Democrats agreeing. Even more Americans agree with buffed tariffs on China is the nation fails to live up to its commitments to purchase more American goods and products under a recent trade agreement with the United States.

China’s actions to conceal the severity of the coronavirus pandemic- with many believing the Chinese Communist Party to be systematically concealing diagnosis and casualty rates- have led to a global blow to the nation’s reputation. Major nations have already begun plans to bring back manufacturing businesses from the country, which has risen in geopolitical significance on the back of outsourcing manufacturing from developed countries.

China also has utilized its handpicked puppets to advance its interests through global institutions, with the pro-Chinese director of the World Health Organization claiming on Thursday he was the target of harassment campaigns from Taiwanese internet users. The WHO has been largely more fixated on protecting China’s interests than warning the global public of the threats posed by the coronavirus.

As popular skepticism and concern towards China grows among the public, it’s worth noting that presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden has a lengthy track record of favoring further cooperation and partnership with China. Biden has supported virtually every single trade deal allowing the nation to gobble up outsourced American jobs and manufacturing, even going so far as to openly reject claims that China is an essential geopolitical and economic adversary of America.

The age of outsourcing key elements of our economy in pursuit of cheap labor- leaving our national access to key goods and services to authoritarian kleptocrats- may be destined for an end as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Chinese State Media Hack Cites CATO Institute To Defend Globalist Trade Policies

Politics makes strange bedfellows.

Published

An editor of a Chinese-government controlled media group cited a CATO Institute article to argue against Senator Josh Hawley’s criticisms of the World Trade Organization in a tweet on Tuesday, telling the Missouri Senator to “get educated” on the benefits the globalist trade organization supposedly provides.

Chen Weihua is the EU bureau chief of China Daily, a daily newspaper following in the mold of many Chinese media organizations in being entirely state-owned and affiliated with the Chinese government.

It would nominally comes as a surprise that an operative of the Chinese Communist Party would cite the free-trade libertarian think tank’s rebuttal to Senator Hawley’s argument against the WTO, but politics makes for strange bedfellows. Both the Chinese government’s outsourcing-based economic model and western corporate elites cozy with CATO benefit from a continued regime of low trade barriers and free trade, placing the ideological libertarians and Chinese communists in the same camp on trade policy.

Senator Hawley had put Weihua on blast for propagandizing against the populist-right senator’s call to abolish the World Trade Organization and replace it with an economic nationalist and pro-worker alternative. The WTO has been a critical element in the outsourcing of millions of American jobs and vital national industry to China and other countries where cheap labor is plentiful.

Staunch America First advocates pushed back against Weihua and CATO’s defense of “free trade” with China, with economic nationalists arguing that the country should never even have been let into the WTO to begin with.
