Any time Trump and his supporters attack China over COVID-19, please be sure to share these quotes

Last edited Sun Apr 19, 2020, 07:06 PM - Edit history (1)

POLITICO has compiled a list of 15 times the president hailed China for its push to prevent a pandemic in the early months of 2020 — an effort that ultimately failed:

Jan. 24, Twitter:

“China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

<...>

Feb. 7, Twitter:

“Just had a long and very good conversation by phone with President Xi of China. He is strong, sharp and powerfully focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus. He feels they are doing very well, even building hospitals in a matter of only days … Great discipline is taking place in China, as President Xi strongly leads what will be a very successful operation. We are working closely with China to help!

Feb. 7, Remarks before Marine One departure:

"Late last night, I had a very good talk with President Xi, and we talked about — mostly about the coronavirus. They're working really hard, and I think they are doing a very professional job. They're in touch with World — the World — World Organization. CDC also. We're working together. But World Health is working with them. CDC is working with them. I had a great conversation last night with President Xi. It's a tough situation. I think they're doing a very good job.”

Feb. 10, Fox Business interview:

"I think China is very, you know, professionally run in the sense that they have everything under control," Trump said. "I really believe they are going to have it under control fairly soon. You know in April, supposedly, it dies with the hotter weather. And that's a beautiful date to look forward to. But China I can tell you is working very hard."

That was just a sample. There are plenty more damning quotes at the link.

2. Absolutely. Bookmarking, laying in wait for RW going after China. I am so going to ask about 15x's

that are actually documented of Trump praising China because he was trying to fix the mess he created with tariffs.

7. It's interesting.....the China trade deal negotiations were going on at the same time

He wanted to butter up China's president so that he could get his trade deal.

That's obviously out the window now.

He was more concerned about his trade deal than the health of the American people

3. K&R

We need to start seeing more commercials using Trump's own words pointing out his hypocrisy and lies. Someone needs to get on this, soon.

6. It's my understanding that some of those commercials have already started in swing states

There's so much stuff to work with!

All we need to do is play back is own quotes.

4. How many trademarks does the Princess have with China?

Democrats should be asking this over and over. She is fair game.
