The former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has launched a petition, calling for Congress to take action on the Chinese Communist Party for its role in covering up the CCP Virus, or coronavirus outbreak.
“China’s Communist government needs to be held accountable for their role in lying about the coronavirus pandemic, and the U.S. Congress needs to respond—now” Haley said in a statement on Thursday, April 23, when she introduced the “Stop Communist China” petition.
“We have long warned about the threats China’s Communist government poses. Now, in a time of crisis, we are seeing just how dangerous China is. The time for warnings is over. We must act and protect American security, health, and prosperity,” she said.
“Sign our petition to stop the Chinese Communist government’s deception and manipulation. We need Congress to act now to prevent China’s growing influence,” she said.
The petition is calling on the U.S. Congress to:
–Investigate the Communist Chinese government’s role in covering up the initial COVID-19 outbreak.
-End China’s stranglehold on critically-important supplies. Bring manufacturing of medical equipment and pharmaceuticals back to America.
-Make China pay the United Nations and other international organizations’ like the second largest economy in the world should — no more being treated like a poor “developing country.”
-Support Taiwan. Push back against Communist China’s bullying and allow Taiwan to join the World Health Organization (WHO).
-Require American colleges and universities to disclose all Chinese Communist government funding of professors and researchers.
According to Fox News, the former U.N. ambassador launched the petition through Stand For America, Haley’s advocacy group that she set up after leaving her post.
On Wednesday, Haley also urged the United States to call for an emergency Security Council meeting “on China’s involvement and knowledge of the virus,” which encountered a response from Chinese Ambassador Zhang Jun who said, “Epidemics may occur anywhere.”
“The most important thing is to defeat the virus and save lives. China has done its job and is now working hard in helping others,” Zhang said. “Attempts of scapegoating or stigma go nowhere. “
Haley responded, “I’m assuming you would have no problem expressing that in a Security Council meeting. Other countries including the U.S. have some questions we would like answered.”
