Ric Grenell to Newsmax TV: China to Blame for Economic 'Devastation'

(Newsmax TV's "American Agenda")

By    |   Monday, 22 June 2020 04:08 PM

China is responsible for the coronavirus pandemic and its "devastation to our economy," former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell told Newsmax TV on Monday.

"I've been a diplomat my whole life, so I always hope that we're able to solve everything diplomatically, and that's my focus; and I think the fact of the matter is that we've got a serious problem with China because of COVID-19," Grenell told Monday's "American Agenda."

"The evidence shows that it originated in China, and the Chinese secret system is really the problem. We all need to come together, Republicans and Democrats, and understand that this COVID-19, this Chinese virus, has devastated our economy."

"It has really shaken the core of policy makers to figure out the supply chain system, we can never be in the same situation that we were before," Grenell continued. "So, I'd like to see us come together with Europeans and with Americans, and be able to say that the blame for this problem, for this devastation to our economy, is clearly China, and we have to adjust our policies and make sure that this never happens again."

Grenell added, "there's a whole variety of tools" to use against China, "and I'm gonna leave it to the president to come up with what he feels is best, but make no mistake, let me just say this: President Trump knows that China is at fault here. He's a businessman; he knows how to get things done. He knows how to use the leverage of the United States government. I've never seen a president that's willing to use the full force and leverage of the U. S. government like this president."
