For now, the US is preoccupied with an unprecedented crisis. When it ebbs, expect a major bipartisan commission, like the one after 9/11, to assess the causes of this catastrophe and the response from national, state, and local governments, health care providers, and the private sector. Inevitably, it will closely examine China’s role in this global disaster. The results will not be pretty for the Chinese communist regime and its relations with the United States.
Meanwhile, the Trump administration will vigorously defend itself against the CCP’s smear campaign. Trump sees it, rightly, as a direct attack on his administration and America. It will reinforce his ‘America First’ slogan and his protectionist ideas.
