2:58 That is not what the Chinese person said. He says, 'between China and U.S., there has been disputes about where the virus originated. The one who originated these disputes is U.S.‘ Lin on the other hand is undoubtedly trying to accuse America, I just thought the first sentence's translation was highly misleading.

“Could’ve been stopped in China”
France had a case before December 27th. Yes, could’ve been stopped in China.

The first place HIV was documented was in LA, California, USA.
The first place the "Spanish flu " was documented was in Kansas city USA.
NOBODY till date has blamed America!
It is a big shame that America is looking for who to blame instead of protecting its citizens.
The richest country in the world with one of the most advanced health systems CANNOT protect its citizens.
It's a shame!

Xi wears a mask during his official visits, Trump doesn't. That difficult to tell who is downplaying the virus?

Why is their attention not on containing the virus itself?! It's like watching children point fingers and throwing tantrums on the playground. What a disgrace.

Trump : I don't need a mask bcoz I can always blame China for the virus

US congress has been briefed latest by Jan 24 on the outbreak. Phone record from Richard Burr confirmed that US government understood and compared the seriousness to Spanish Flu. Based on that understanding, action was taken in form of stock dumping by the politicians.
I say China is responsible before Jan 24. US is responsible for itself after Jan 24.

For once, I would love the “Trump Administration” to focus on leading in America and to stop creating distractions from their failures.
