White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said Sunday that China’s leaders “essentially have killed” 39,000 Americans so far from the coronavirus.

In an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures,” Navarro pointed to four moves China made that pushed the world into a global pandemic.

“They did four things that led to the deaths of many people worldwide,” he said, charging that “first of all, the virus was [spawned] in China.”

“Second of all they hid the virus behind the shield of the World Health Organization,” he said. “The third thing they did was basically horde personal protective equipment and now they are profiteering from it.”

“I think that China right now, after doing those four actions which effectively have killed to date 39,000 Americans and 160,000 people worldwide may attempt to use this crisis now to advance their own agenda worldwide,” he declared.

According to Navarro, the pandemic has taught the U.S. business community an important lesson.

“I think this has been a real moment for business leaders all across America to see the political risk associated with operations inside of China,” he said.

“Now we've ripped the band aid off, the political risk connected to that… we need to make sure the supply chain for the products that matter, for American national security and keeping people safe are no longer dependent on any single country, and we have a responsibility to get that right,”
he said.
