    Former President Donald Trump demanded Thursday China pay ten trillion dollars in reparations to the United States for coronavirus deaths and destruction, as the country spent $13 trillion battling the virus.

    “China should pay Ten Trillion Dollars to America, and the World, for the death and destruction they have caused!” Trump wrote.


    “Now everyone, even the so-called ‘enemy,’ are beginning to say that President Trump was right about the China Virus coming from the Wuhan Lab. The correspondence between Dr. Fauci and China speaks too loudly for anyone to ignore,”….

    President Trump is right. The Chinese are responsible for this whole situation. Their leak and cover up are terrible violations of human rights. They deliberately caused millions of people to die around the world when it could have been contained.

    Ten trillion is a fair amount considering every thing they’ve done.

    I read about this yesterday on a different site. It just seems like he's posturing just like he did about Mexico paying for the wall. Wasn't he praising Xi for doing all they could to help last year? He just likes seeing his name in print. That, and Big Macs.

    I think they call that whistling in the wind. It wouldn't help anything anyway. Government would just waste it and then come back for more.

    It’s becoming more obvious to more people just how responsible China was. Obviously they’re never going to pay a dime. The responsible thing to do is for the world to cut them off. Businesses have to leave. They have to suck it up and understand that selling them **** or cheap slave labor isn’t more important than what China has done. They have to be punished for this or they will just do it again.

    How can any reputable business sit there and take a stand on human rights or wrong doing and still deal with China? Rip the bandaid.

    How can Apple or the NBA sit there and be “righteous” considering the money they make off China? It’s disgusting.

    Many years ago, I was a seller on Ebay. There was a small group of us private sellers that communicated regularly. One day, a guy in the group told us about a seller that was posting child porn. It was clear from the photos that the subject was unaware of the camera being there. He had at least 100 listings of the same type of trash. Our small group decided to join together in a complaint to corporate.

    Ebay sent a canned response and wouldn't remove the ads. The reality was that seller brought in more sales than all of ours combined. We (our small group) reached the point where it was obvious that Ebay wasn't going to do anything about it. I personally reported it to the FBI and Center for Missing and Exploited Children but they don't follow up so I had no way of knowing if it was investigated or not.

    To my surprise, about 75% of our small group continued to sell on Ebay despite them doing nothing about that issue. They rationalized that they did all they could about it so they were going to just ignore it. I tried convincing them that continuing to sell through the site only solidified Ebay's position of ignoring the problem. They simply didn't care.

    So, while I completely understand your position and think it's a good move ethically, I also feel a twinge of hopelessness. I can clearly foresee many governments, especially smaller ones, doing exactly like 75% of our small group did - continue to do business and pretend the problem doesn't exist. It's a sad state of affairs when we teach our children that crime doesn't pay but our collective silence against it proves that it does.

    ETA: I closed my account and never sold or purchased anything on Ebay since that incident.

    Not really... We'd have probably laughed just as hard as demanding money without any proof of responsibility...

    And speaking of futile efforts, here's a headline that is SURE to make all thinking humans laugh..

    As Trump restarts rallies, GOP strategists hope against all odds that he won't rehash 2020 election

    Donald Trump demands? Excuse me? Is this meant to be taken seriously?

    Okay, now that I've cleaned up after reading the headline...

    "China should..." is not a demand. It's like a different planet around here sometimes. Sm...s...sm...gettin' dizzy...

    I'll fix the fallacious headline for the OP. You're welcome.

    As much as the Dems who called his travel ban "racist and xenophobic" and told people to go out and enjoy chinatown, ride the subways and go to the movies? Oh, that's right.....we ignore that.

    And he hardly did "nothing" go blow that smoke up some gullible anus.

    Well, certainly China is burning the midnight oil trying to figure out how to come up with that sum ASAP... plus the usual 20% "gratuity"....

    I wrote that before reading the OP. Couldn't help myself. As usual, the OP is flying a false headline. Fake news. Trump didn't demand anything. Some worldviews are stuck on authoritarianism.

    How many people died because they went shopping in Chinatown like Nancy Pelosi told them to while calling Trump racist and xenophobic for banning travel from China?

    I happen to agree with your view about making a stand with your wallet. With your views in mind, I ask, how can any American citizen shop at walmart?

    He did nothing. From the horses-ass mouth himself:

    Jan. 22, 2020
    “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”
    Feb. 10
    “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.”
    Feb. 24
    “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. … Stock Market starting to look very good to me!” (fell from 28.8 to 27.9 )
    Feb. 27
    “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”
    March 4
    “Some people will have this at a very light level and won’t even go to a doctor or hospital, and they’ll get better. There are many people like that.”
    March 9
    “The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power ... to inflame the CoronaVirus situation.”
    (Stock Market closes at 23. )
    March 10
    “We’re prepared, and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”
    March 18
    “I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously, and have done a very good job from the beginning, including my very early decision to close the ‘borders’ from China - against the wishes of almost all.” (Stock Market closes at 19,899)
    March 26
    “I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go into major hospitals sometimes they’ll have two ventilators, and now all of a sudden they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?’”

    Did we forget the Superspreader event he hosted in the Rose Garden ?

    Over 600,000 dead Americans dead and that slime is still breathing......

    Agreed. I don't need this Trump "demand" to see this, and we don't yet know what really happened in Wuhan - we probably never will - but yes, a new cold war seems inevitable. This is why we need our traditional allies. Erdogan, Putin and Kim are not allied with us against China. Western Europe is.

    Have you ever had a conversation with someone about buying a house or a car? More often than not, they completely gloss over the terms of the sale and only want to know what the monthly payment will be. Lenders rely on this to put all kinds of outrageous fees in the fine print.

    It's the same way with WalMart and other American retailers with dirty hands. People only care about the cost to them rather than the nationwide costs (ie lost jobs, closed factories, cheap products, pushing out small businesses, etc.). I have no choice but to shop at WalMart because the only other grocery store we have is Aldi's. I do my best to wait until I have to go to the next town to shop elsewhere for groceries but my hands are tied here. I was told that they pushed out the locally owned grocery store right before I moved here in 2018. I am not opposed to ordering groceries but my town is too small so it's not available here. We don't have a bus service or even Uber drivers. I refuse to drive now because I have unexplained syncope (passing out) and don't want to risk other people's or my own life trying to drive.
