This is so incredibly immoral on every single level.
According to Republican Rep. Mark Green, China is now leveraging its stockpile of medical supplies to countries suffering from the virus they gave to them.
But that’s not all…
They apparently won’t be handing out these medical supplies unless the country agrees to support their Huawei 5G cellular network.
China, the country where the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19 originated, has been providing personal protective equipment to other countries that have been hurt by the pandemic. Sometimes, however, that offer of assistance comes with a catch.
Republican Rep. Mark Green of Tennessee said on Fox News on Sunday that when France asked for some medical masks, China attempted to leverage that need to get France to use its Huawei 5G network.
“In France, we were told yesterday on a conference call that [French President Emanuel] Macron was talking to [Chinese President] Xi and Macron asked for a billion masks, and Xi said, ‘We’ll give them to you if you implement 5G with Huawei,'” Green said. “That’s who China is, and it’s time the world wake up and recognize it.” [The Blaze]
Well, that’s some definite quid pro quo if we’ve ever seen it.
China has some real nerve using this virus that they gave us as an opportunity to extort countries out of more money.
