Senator Cotton: China’s Actions Deliberately Malevolent; Their Scientists Shouldn’t Be Allowed To Study In US

Senator believes China deliberately allowed virus to spread globally to save their own economy.

Senator Tom Cotton slammed the communist Chinese government, describing its actions as “deliberately malevolent” when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic. He also suggested that Chinese students should not be allowed to study sciences within the US until the country has been properly held accountable.

Cotton said that he believes China consciously allowed the virus to spread so that the playing field would be levelled, and other countries would also experience economic disaster.

“Wherever it originated … we know that the Chinese Communist Party was both criminally negligent and incompetent at first, and then deliberately, deliberately malevolent in the way they responded to this virus, for their own people and the world,” Cotton said during a Fox News interview.

“As early as the second week of December, it was clear that this virus was spreading from person to person. By late December, it was spreading to doctors in Wuhan hospitals. Some doctors were trying to blow the whistle on these facts, and the secret police arrived at their doorsteps in the middle of the night.” Cotton added.

“So only after China fessed up to the WHO on December 31 did the world know what was happening. Yet, still they continued to deny that it was spreading from person to person into mid-January. That allowed millions of people to leave Wuhan,” Cotton continued.

“And then, finally, China continued to pressure the WHO and other countries not to stop international travel from China. That meant that hundreds of thousands of persons left China after this virus was spread far outside of Wuhan, which allowed the virus to escape China’s borders and get to the United States and get to Europe and get to essentially every country in the world.”

Cotton noted that China allowed flights to continue in spieling of the outbreak “because they didn’t want to see their relative power and standing in the world decline.”

“They also knew that, once this virus began to spread outside of Wuhan, it would wreak economic havoc throughout China. And, in fact, China had the first contraction in the first quarter of this year since the cultural revolution ended in the 1970s,” Cotton added.

The Senator charged that China, worried that it would fall behind the rest of the world economically, deliberately allowed the virus to spread.

“I believe the Chinese communist leaders, when they were aware of those facts by mid-January, made the conscious decision not to explain to the world that it was transmissible between humans, not to shut down travel, not to ask for American or other kind of international scientific help, but to allow this virus to escape their borders, because if they were going to suffer an economic contraction, they were not going to allow the world to continue to prosper, and China be the only country whose economy was declining.” Cotton said.

Cotton also urged that it is an injustice that the United States has trained some Chinese nationals to “go back to China to compete for our jobs, to take our business, and ultimately to steal our property and design weapons and other devices that can be used against the American people.”

“If Chinese students want to come here and study Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers, that’s what they need to learn from America,” Cotton said, adding “They don’t need to learn quantum computing and artificial intelligence from America.”

Leftists immediately took to Twitter screeching ‘racism’:
