Trump: China’s Coronavirus Death Counts ‘Far higher than the U.S., not even close’

President Donald Trump shared on Twitter Friday that China’s fatality counts from COVID-19 are “far higher” than what’s been reported and “far higher than the U.S., not even close!”

The Chinese government’s reported death toll jumped dramatically on Friday after making a revision. That change resulted in a nearly 1,300 jump in the death count.

According to the Associated Press, the official death toll in Wuhan was raised by 50 percent bringing the total to 3,869 and bring China’s total fatalities to 4,632. The total before the edit was 3,342.

However, Trump, along with many other critics of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), say that the death toll of COVID19 in China is questionable and the number is believed to be far greater.

The Chinese government has been criticized for concealing the truth from the world. Last month, the CCP expelled U.S. and foreign journalists from its nation and many Chinese citizen reporters have disappeared.

U.S. intelligence officials are now investigating if the natural born novel coronavirus was accidentally leaked from a lab in Wuhan, China, which was the original epicenter of the outbreak. Chinese officials have failed to explain what happened and instead, have been working diligently to change the narrative regarding their role and responsibility in the outbreak.

With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.

Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.

The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.

In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.

“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.

“In partnership with the business community and the General Assembly, two years ago we set out to make Illinois a destination for electric vehicle and clean energy companies from across the globe,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”

Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.

“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
