ATLANTA – In case you missed it, conservative businesswoman and political outsider Kelly Loeffler this week called for “significant concessions” from the Chinese government for its deliberate coverup of the COVID-19 crisis. In a letter to the Trump Administration, Senator Loeffler praised President Trump’s historic trade deal with China but advocated strongly for concessions in ongoing trade negotiations, adding, “the time has come for the Chinese Communist Party to be held accountable for their role in allowing this disease to reach our shores.” From Senator Loeffler’s letter:
“’In January, Mr. President, you negotiated a historic trade deal with China that was a huge win for American farmers and consumers. Since then, it has become clear that the Chinese Communist Party has been negligent in the spread of COVID-19. What’s worse—they appear to be behind one of the deadliest cover-ups in human history.
COVID-19 has taken American lives, wrecked our economy, pushed our healthcare system to the brink, and caused irreparable harm to individuals, families, communities and companies across our country. As we continue to stop the spread and provide relief, it’s time to start fighting back—and holding the CCP accountable for their actions.'”
Senator Loeffler urged President Trump to end American dependence on China by shifting supply chains back to the United States, ending American reliance on Chinese pharmaceuticals, banning wet market exports from China, and increasing oversight of Chinese biological laboratories that benefit from taxpayer funding.
