“If there’s one thing that coronavirus has taught us, [it’s] that Donald Trump and his agenda in 2016 when he [ran on] the MAGA agenda was 100 percent right,” Trump Jr. said. “We do need to control our supply chains. We do need to have American manufacturing so the Chinese can’t do what they did,” Donald Trump Jr. told “Hannity” in an interview on Fox News Thursday night.
“Look how quick Mexico shut down the border to the U.S. when they said, ‘Hey, you know, guys, it can actually be done.’ So if [there’s] one thing that this has shown us [it’s] that Donald Trump was right all along,” Trump Jr. said. “Donald Trump is a guy that got it and saw that.”
“He’s also the guy that built the greatest economy America has ever known. He’s the guy that can make America great again, again, once we get through this,” concluded Trump Jr.

Biden to lift sanctions on China in exchange for third promise to combat fentanyl
Reportedly President Joe Biden is making deals with Chinese President Xi Jinping to help improve anti-drug trafficking measures. China is one of the top fentanyl producers and distributors, culminating in a pandemic of fentanyl overdoses and deaths in the United States.
The Biden administration will be lifting sanctions on a Chinese government ministry, in exchange for bolstering anti-drug trafficking measures, Bloomberg reported. “We’re hoping to see some progress on that issue this coming week,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said Monday, according to the New York Post. “That could then open the door to further cooperation on other issues where we aren’t just managing things, but we’re actually delivering tangible results.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation noted that should a deal materialize, it will be at least the third time that China has promised to get tough on fentanyl. In 2016, China agreed to increase counter-narcotics operations, and Xi again agreed to launch a crackdown in 2018. Nonetheless, China and Mexico are “the primary source countries for fentanyl and fentanyl-related substances trafficked directly into the United States,” according to a 2020 DEA intelligence report.
“China remains the primary source of fentanyl and fentanyl-related substances trafficked through international mail and express consignment operations environment, as well as the main source for all fentanyl-related substances trafficked into the United States.”
President Joe Biden and Xi are meeting for the first time in over a year during this week’s Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in San Francisco. Sources familiar with the situation told Bloomberg that the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will crack down on Chinese companies manufacturing chemical precursors for fentanyl in exchange for the U.S. lifting sanctions on the Ministry of Public Security’s Institute of Forensic Science, which the Commerce Department added to the Entity List in 2020 for “engaging in human rights violations and abuses” in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
