Pompeo: At the Outset, WHO Sided with the Chinese & Failed to Prevent a Pandemic
POMPEO: “ I think the most likely case is it came from this laboratory and then the Chinese Communist Party covered it up. They were conducting bioweapons research there, this is really dangerous stuff. As far as I know, that lab is still operating. So we should, Trey, to your second question, we should use every tool that we have available, and we have many. It started for us with getting out of the World Health Organization, an institution that utterly failed in the one job that it had: preventing a pandemic. At a moment of crisis, at the crunch point, they sided with Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party and not with the world and their mission statement. So leave the W.H.O., leave the Chinese to their own in that regard, and built the institution that can actually prevent against the pandemic. We have lots of economic tools. You know ,the Chinese leadership, Trey, loves nothing better than to have their children study in our schools or their wives come shop here in the U.S. We have lots of ways to impose real cost on the Chinese Communist Party."
