We rely on China for medical supplies, vaccine production, and other life-saving equipment. It's time for America to rapidly increase domestic manufacturing and stop trusting adversaries to supply us in a crisis. China has proven itself untrustworthy on coronavirus.

China silenced coronavirus whistleblowers, expelled journalists, destroyed samples, refused CDC help, and concealed counts of deaths and infections. It's fact there was a massive coverup. China is responsible. The world must act to hold them accountable.

Hard-hitting interview by @jonathanvswan  with China's amb to the US, Cui Tiankai, where he denies conspiracy theories that the US had anything to do with coronavirus as crazy. A good first step given that China's communist govt is responsible for this mess

Great work by @john_walters_  at the @HudsonInstitute  on how the Chinese Communist Party’s cover-up got us into this mess & the innovation of the free world will get us out of it. China deserves no praise for their virus response efforts.

The average grocery store worker makes $29,000 per year. Now, much like doctors and nurses, they now wear masks & gloves to work to protect themselves. Americans are stepping up everywhere to keep our country stocked & supplied during this crisis. Say thank you!

Contrast China’s patterns of abuse, cover-ups, inhumane treatment of the their people, and blatant disregard for infecting others to the effective and humane work in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau to contain the virus. More from @RLHeinrichs 

It is believed that Robert Levinson, the longest-held hostage in U.S. history and a former FBI agent, has died in Iranian custody. Iran must immediately release all Americans who remain wrongfully detained and robbed of basic human rights by the ayatollahs.

Congratulations to @TheJusticeDept  for indicting Nicolas Maduro and members of his inner circle. Maduro uses Venezuela as a front for criminals, drug traffickers and terrorist groups. Prison for Maduro promptly after he is overthrown!


I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, "Let's talk about it tomorrow."

Our country & civilians are vulnerable today because @BarackObama  did not believe in national missile defense. Let’s never forget that.

My advice to bankers, brokers, traders, facilitators, and other businesses: don’t deal in gold, oil, or other Venezuelan commodities being stolen from the Venezuelan people by the Maduro mafia. We stand ready to continue to take action.

Congratulations to all involved in eliminating Qassem Soleimani. Long in the making, this was a decisive blow against Iran's malign Quds Force activities worldwide. Hope this is the first step to regime change in Tehran.
