It’s been said that “a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged by reality.” America is undergoing a similar transformation, having been mugged by the reality of the pandemic precipitated by the Chinese Communist Party.
President Trump spoke Monday for millions of us who now realize that we can no longer do business as usual with China. He said, “We should never be reliant on a foreign country for the means of our own survival….This crisis has underscored just how critical it is to have strong borders and a robust manufacturing sector….
“Our goal for the future must be to have American medicine for American patients, American supplies for American hospitals, and American equipment for our great American heroes,” Trump said. “Now both parties must unite to ensure America is truly an independent nation in every sense of the word.”
