President Trump took a strong stance against Chinese aggression on Saturday, promising that as president again after a potentially victorious 2024 election, he would hold China financially accountable for “unleashing the China Virus upon the world.”

Trump’s remarks were delivered in Washington, D.C. during 2023’s CPAC event. His speech was bold and unflinching, taking aim at political corruption, domestic tyranny, left-wing radicalism, and the ravaged economy.

Trump also vowed to “implement a four-year plan to phase out all Chinese imports of essential goods and gain total independence from China – we have to do it.”

Trump’s Saturday-evening statement on China comes shortly after the U.S. Department of Energy released a report admitting that the Covid virus likely originated in a laboratory. In a piece written for the Daily Mail, Trump stated that the world was finally “admitting the truth.”

Per his editorial for the outlet, Trump wrote, “Three years ago, I declared that COVID-19 almost certainly came from the Chinese Wuhan lab. Now, the world is finally admitting the truth. The cover-up of COVID-19’s origins is one of the greatest scandals in the history of the world. Millions of people all over the planet have died from the China Virus. The cost of the outbreak and the lying about its origins is incalculable, some say in excess of $50 trillion.”

In February, the president presented an America First trade policy agenda that took aim at the United States’ dependence on China. As reported by RSBN, Trump explained, “My agenda will tax CHINA to build up AMERICA. The heart of my vision is a sweeping pro-American overhaul of our tax and trade policy to move from the Biden system that punishes domestic producers and rewards outsourcers, to a system that REWARDS domestic production and taxes FOREIGN companies and those who export American Jobs.”
