How Coronavirus Will Strengthen Trump's 2020 Campaign

American Thinker
By Tim Jones
March 17, 2020

Excerpt:

While the mainstream media have been running around yelling that the sky is falling and the left is criticizing Trump for not acting fast enough in curtailing the spread of the coronavirus, here's how it will end up helping Trump during his re-election campaign. It will validate the need to continue with his two biggest campaign issues from 2016: building a wall on the Mexican border and getting the United States off its dependency with China by re-balancing trade.

He's already succeeded more than anyone would have thought possible with both of these issues.

When the presidential campaign begins in earnest this coming fall, the Coronavirus "crisis" will be long over with, so Trump will be able to raise it as an example of why the United States needs secure borders and to reduce our dependency on China, especially when it comes to prescription drugs that have been outsourced to China. The best example is the production of antibiotics. From "China's Lock on Drugs," published back in May of 2018:

China has exclusive manufacturing agreements for drugs for anesthesia, cancer and HIV/AIDS, along with other medicines that "we use every day, not only in hospitals but in our own medicine chests," Gibson says, adding that China is now the world's only source of antibiotics, including the main ingredient in vancomycin, a treatment of last resort that is used by patients who are suffering from infections that are resistant to other treatment.

The article goes on to say:

Multinational drug companies, many of them headquartered in the United States, began buying ingredients for critical drugs in China after the U.S.-China Fair Trade Agreement passed nearly two decades ago. State-owned Chinese companies, buoyed by heavy government subsidies, set their prices so low that they were able to undercut established manufacturers in the U.S. and elsewhere, prompting them to shut down their plants and move their operations to China, the authors say.

Just like the automotive industry moving so much of its manufacturing to Mexico, the manufacturers of prescription drugs have moved their production to China in the form of outsourcing. In the process, also just like the auto industry, the pharmaceutical industry has lost a large number of jobs, making China its key supplier.

With regard to Trump's issues on illegal immigration, the coronavirus crisis will demonstrate just how important it is to secure the country's borders. Trump has already succeeded in building a large part of the border wall with Mexico that he promised in 2016, despite the "resistance" of the Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media. So during the 2020 campaign, how will Joe Biden, assuming he's the Democrats' presidential nominee, be able to criticize Trump for his hard line on the border? And how will Biden square an open borders policy with the circle of American health care security? The easy answer is that he won't, and he will look like a fool if he tries.

The exact same argument can be made when it comes to the United States' relationship with China. Joe Biden simply will not be able to make a cogent argument as to why Trump has been wrong when it came to the making major changes in dealing with China and putting the interests of the United States first. Trump will be able to point to his efforts at changing the country's trade policy not just for the economic security of the United States, but for the safety and security of the health of every American.

A little known fact about the H1N1 "Swine Flu" epidemic that took place in 2009, Obama's first year as president, is that it originated in Mexico. It was a mystery for a long time as to where it started, and one has to wonder why it took so long to find out. It wasn't until seven years later, in 2016, that researchers were able to make a firm determination. From "2009 swine flu pandemic originated in Mexico, researchers discover":

The 2009 swine H1N1 flu pandemic — responsible for more than 17,000 deaths worldwide — originated in pigs from a very small region in central Mexico, a research team headed by investigators at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is reporting.

The scientists say their findings, published in the journal eLife, represent the first time that the origin of an influenza pandemic virus has been determined in such detail.

Which is why the Democrats are frothing at the mouth rabid trying everything they can to divert attention away from the truth of what's going on and pushing the ever-present narrative that President Trump isn't fit to hold office.

Democrats have watched too many geico commercials. “Running for president is so easy, a biden could do it. Geico. 15 seconds could explain 15 or more reasons why biden sucks.”
