White House Debates Taking Action Against China After Reports of Hoarding PPE

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on April 06, 2020

The White House is considering taking action against China after learning that they were allegedly prohibiting US manufactures from exporting personal protective equipment that was manufactured in China based plants

Several US Manufacturers informed the White House that China was prohibiting the export of essential medical equipment as the coronavirus pandemic was quickly spreading.

“In criminal law, compare this to the levels that we have for murder.
People are dying. When you have intentional, cold-blooded premeditated action like you have with China, this would be considered first-degree murder.”
– Jenna Ellis, a senior legal adviser to Trump’s re-election campaign.

The current options that the Trump administration is considering include working directly with the United Nations on the issue or filing a complaint with the European Court of Human Rights

3M and Honeywell were two of the US companies that had their goods blocked from being exported. The types of supplies included N95 respirators, booties, gloves and other supplies that were manufactured in the China based factories

While China paid their regular wholesale rate they prevented the items from going anywhere else.

Around the same time that items were prohibited from being exported China reportedly imported 2.46 billion pieces of epidemic prevention and control materials. The items included more than 2 billion masks and more than 25 millions pieces of protective clothing.

“Data from China’s own customs agency points to an attempt to corner the world market in PPE like gloves, goggles, and masks through massive increased purchases – even as China, the world’s largest PPE manufacturer, was restricting exports,”

The news comes shortly after President Trump invoked the Defense Production Act on 3M for N95 respirators
