Reparations from China

President Trump vowed Tuesday that the US will seek to secure hundreds of billions of dollars in reparations from China over the coronavirus outbreak, reiterating that the outbreak “could have been stopped at the source.”

Trump was asked by a reporter about Germany’s apparent intention to issue China with a $160 billion bill, relating to the impact the virus has had on the European economy.

“We have ways of doing things a lot easier than that,” Trump replied, adding “Germany’s looking at things, and we’re looking at things, and we’re talking about a lot more money than Germany’s talking about.”

“We haven’t determined the final amount yet. It’s very substantial,” Trump continued, adding that “There are a lot of ways you can hold them accountable.”

“We’re doing very serious investigations, as you probably know. And we are not happy with China. We are not happy with that whole situation,” the President urged.

“We believe it could have been stopped at the source. It could have been stopped quickly, and it wouldn’t have spread all over the world.” Trump stressed.

    • In what scenario could Germany be made to pay reparations for the damage they wrought during world war 2 – unfortunately, that is the only scenario I can think of.

    • ……”How would any decision be enforced?”……

      China has huge investments in the USA. The Yanks would freeze them the same way as they did with Iran.

      • And China will retaliate by freezing the assets of US companies in China; cutting off a large amount of manufacturing capacity.

        • Maybe that’s the long term game for the USA. Use China’s assets to rebuild their manufacturing base.

          I smell the rotting corpse of globalism in the wind & it’s a beautiful scent.

        • And the US will stop all exports of grains, soy, pork etc to China.
          I know who will blink first.
          The only way the CCP stays in power is to keep the masses fed. The food chain is very weak in China. They have a pork shortage and are the worlds biggest consumer of that staple. It would be a disaster for the CCP if they couldn’t feed their billion mouths

          • Yes Ed that is so true. Food is the great Achilles’ heel of China. The pig farmer President for Life knows that when 1.6 billion chinky-sounding names start going hungry your CCP dynasty isn’t going to last long.

  1. Nothing suspicious here, don’t question the narrative, there couldn’t possibly be a reason to go lightly on NZ! Could there?

    News breaks that China will not retaliate against NZ for joining the US and Australia in investigating China’s role in the spread of the Chinese virus – even though China intends to retaliate against Australia and the US.

    It’s like a reverse IQ test, here are three things, one of them is obviously different to the other two – you can prove your IQ is well below 100 if you can convince yourself that there is no discernible difference between the three.

    As I’m comfortable all YSBers will fail this reverse IQ test, then we have to ask ourselves why is NZ being treated with kid gloves by a well known bully? Well, firstly I asked myself is it because Winston Peters has super-power diplomacy skills? Then I reminded myself how he can’t stop himself nodding off when he’s on diplomatic duty – so it can’t be that. And then I wondered if it is because we are one of the great superpowers, with a military to be feared and vast economic power that could be used to break our enemies – but nah! as much as we’d like to think it – that’s not the case either we are a flea on the world stage.

    So why is China so well disposed towards New Zealand and then I thought if I was a well practiced bully state there is no reason to fear NZ so why not throw my weight around unless it would be in my interest to have a vassal state like NZ on the inside of the tent keeping China informed and arguing against any strong actions – after all forewarned is forearmed! It’s the only rational explanation for why China would make this undertaking. But that can’t be the case can it? Surely New Zealand can’t be considered to be a vassal state by CCP? For that to happen both of our major parties would have to be compromised by unimpeachable evidence that they’re on the take from CCP!

    Our future is Chinese! Learn mandarin now – it won’t save you, but it does mean when you are in an internment camp with People’s Liberation Army guards you’ll understand why they are laughing at you!

  2. I’m no “Orange man bad!” guy but this is a fucking retarded idea and a terrible precedent to try to set. A new virus first found its way into humans in China, and China couldn’t stop it from escaping China, therefore China owes the rest of the word money?

    Fuck that.

    The next scary new virus might get passed to humans from dolphins, via some tree hugger swimming with dolphins in New Zealand. Or from pigs to humans, via some premium certified organic free range pork sausages made in New Zealand. Or maybe a dead sperm whale washes up on the beach at kaikoura, the tangata whenua chainsaws off the jawbone for a taonga, and catches sperm whale flu ’21. And then what? We owe the world $20 Trillion US?

    • There is a big difference between “China couldn’t stop it from escaping” and “China couldn’t stop it from escaping and didn’t tell anyone about it.”
