President Trump Addresses UN General Assembly

UN must hold China accountable for spread of coronavirus.

President Trump addressed the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday in a prerecorded message. As with other world leaders, he did not appear in person due to restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 virus.

In his message, recorded Monday at the White House, the president struck a firm tone as he laid out an “America First” vision. In his speech, he denounced the actions of China, from allowing travelers to spread what he called the “China virus” around the world to polluting the oceans.

“The Chinese government, and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” President Trump said, calling on the U.N. to hold Beijing to account.“

“Later, they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” he said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions.”

China issued a retort accusing President Trump of “unprecedented arrogance” and rejecting his “baseless accusations.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For strength, courage, and stamina for President Trump as he continues the “America First” program.
  • For President Trump’s administration as they buck the globalization trend.
  • That foreign leaders would recognize the risks posed by China’s policies and the damage that has been done.
