Donald Trump has been insisting for years that our country has been too economically dependent on China, so it is sad that it took a global public health crisis like coronavirus to prove he was right all this time.
Even when he was only a candidate for president, Donald Trump hammered home the fact that the United States was too dependent on China in deals that were good for the Chinese and bad for America. He warned against being overly-dependent on the Communist regime for our medicines, as well as other goods and services. Candidate Trump also warned against the catastrophe that waited for a United States who had no control over their borders. In one fell swoop, the COVID-19 coronavirus proved Donald Trump to be right on all of it, and then some.
As I write this, there are roughly 5,359 cases of coronavirus in the United States, or 0.001% of the population infected. Compared to the vast majority of other countries that is a very low rate of infection. One reason for this is President Trump’s border policies for restricting travel and access of people we cannot verify as safe to enter our borders. The Liberals have pilloried him mercilessly for doing it, but they should instead be thanking him as it has kept much of the current pandemic away from us.
The coronavirus will show the American people the wisdom of Trump’s policies.
The need for strong borders? The terrible threat of China? The dangers of globalism? The weakness of supply chains?
You are watching President Trump’s entire world view being validated in real time.

It turns my stomach every time I see Liberal anarchists like Rob Reiner and Mark Ruffalo, people who pretend to be someone they’re not in order to get you to believe they are someone they’re not, spewing lie after lie against the president. Donald Trump was right about China from the beginning, and he is leading us forward strongly and confidently through the coronavirus outbreak. What are the Liberals doing? Trying to create as much fear and panic as possible to cause a recession to prevent his re-election. They hate Trump that much, and it would seem, they hate the everyday working man and woman just as much also.
Coronavirus outbreak shows Donald Trump was right all this time about the multi-tiered threat that is China
FROM THE HILL: When he began imposing strategic tariffs on China in response to its long history of abusive trade practices, the liberals all of a sudden became free trade fundamentalists, predicting that this new “trade war” would harm the American economy because we have relied so heavily on cheap Chinese imports for so many years. Instead, it was the Chinese economy that took a hard hit, while our economy at home surged to its strongest performance in half a century.

What happened? The answer is simple. Just as manufacturers had once moved their factories to China to take advantage of cheap labor, weak regulations, and lower tariffs on exports to developed economies, these companies are now fleeing China for other countries that offer similar business advantages without all of the political baggage from Beijing.
The coronavirus outbreak around the world could dramatically accelerate the manufacturing exodus from China, as companies begin to recognize the perils of giving the authoritarian country so much power over their supply chains. After Beijing placed hundreds of millions of its citizens under an oppressive quarantine, effectively shutting down most of its economy for weeks, the need to diversify production locations should have become abundantly clear to business leaders around the world.
Businesses that followed the lead of the president, however, were already ahead of the curve. The executives understood those artificial advantages that China always utilized to prop up its economy were going to disappear under the pressure of his tariffs, and the steps they took in anticipation of that, such as relocating production to other countries, ultimately reduced their exposure to the coronavirus crisis and its damaging consequences.
The reason for disengaging from China in the first place was to protect American workers and businesses.
While the coronavirus could not have been predicted, there is always a significant risk from overdependence on any single country, especially an authoritarian one that will routinely break the rules in its quest to get ahead. The coronavirus merely happened to be the crisis that demonstrated once and for all why the “free trade” status quo that was rooted in past decades was so dangerous to our country.
Incidentally, the coronavirus also validates the border security agenda of the president. Closing the country off to travelers from areas affected by the outbreak is one of the most effective steps that we can take to limit its spread within our country, and Trump wasted no time in implementing that safeguard. He was roundly criticized by the left, which was primarily concerned about the possibility that restricting travel from China could promote bias against Asians, but at this point pretty much everyone can agree on the importance of knowing whether people entering the United States from overseas might pose a security threat to American citizens.
That sounds an awful lot like the argument that Trump makes about the need to secure our borders against rampant illegal immigration. We need to know who is coming into our country so we can keep dangerous people out of our communities. The president of course had no idea or advance knowledge of the coronavirus. Trump just has a well crafted policy agenda that is equally well suited to protecting our country from the coronavirus as it is to creating a strong and growing economy that generates lasting and broad prosperity that reaches all American individuals and families.
