The White House broke out violently, and Trump was shocked
According to several media reports in the United States, the White House in the United States has recently burst into a fierce”combat drama”.
During the Sino-US trade negotiations Pete Navarro, a White House trade adviser who is”extreme” and”famous” with China, actually fought against the US government’s epidemic prevention expert Anthony Fudge for the mess of the new US epidemic!
According to the introduction of the American Forbes News Network, Navarro first published an explosive article on the”USA Today” website yesterday. As he lifted himself up, he bombarded Fodge, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
In this article entitled”Everything I communicated with, Fucci was wrong”, Navarro Claiming that as early as the end of January this year, he was already issuing a warning to the White House to alert the White House of this”Chinese virus”, Foch had been expressing no fear to the American media at the time, and when Trump announced”courageously” To cut off the route with China, it was Fuchs who had been opposed to this measure that could”save” the lives of thousands of Americans.
Navarro continues to attack Fodge said that in February, when he was vigorously mobilizing US medical resources for Trump to prepare for the epidemic, it was Fodge who continued to downplay the risk of the outbreak in the United States; when he was working hard to increase the production of masks in the United States It’s also that Fudge changes from wearing to wearing a mask.
He also accused Fodge of still misleading the public, adding chaos to the US epidemic prevention work and affecting the US economic restart.

It is conceivable that this article immediately caused shocks in American public opinion. Among them, a large number of American netizens, media, and medical experts believed that this was the White House’s”pushing” the problem of its epidemic dereliction to experts such as Foch. After all, a lot of evidence shows that even if the US blocks all flights and entry channels to China in January, the virus will spread from Europe.
Some people even think it is shameless that the White House is deliberately spreading false news.
However, Trump and the White House have drawn a line with Navarro this time, saying that Navarro’s article is entirely his Personal point of view, and his article has not gone through the White House review process.
According to the Associated Press’s According to reports, Trump said that Navarro published”an article that only represents him personally, and he should not do so.” Trump also emphasized that his relationship with Fuchs was”very good” and said”we are all on the same team, including Fuchs.”
At the same time, in response, Trump again gave China the out-of-control of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, saying that this is” The mess made by China to the United States.”
Fochi himself expressed his confusion about Navarro’s fierce attack on him. According to CNN’s report, Fodge said he could not understand why Navarro would do this, and believed that Navarro’s approach would instead have a negative impact on the White House.
“I can’t explain the person of Navarro, he seems to live in his own world,” Fuch said.
He also said that he would rather devote his energy to the development of a new coronary pneumonia vaccine, rather than quarrel with Navarro.
However, Navarro is not the only one attacking Foch in recent times. Judging from US social media, in recent times, many Trump supporters have posted web posts similar to Navarro’s comments, accusing Foch of having repeated several times in the early days of the US epidemic in February. Downplaying the epidemic also claimed that wearing a mask was useless.
CNN and other media disgusted with Trump therefore believe that Navarro’s article attacking Fuchs is actually to dismiss Trump and the White House. I dare not say what I dare to say, reflecting the mentality of the White House and Trump wanting to evade their dereliction of duty to Fudge, so apart from clearing the line with Navarro, neither the White House nor Trump has There will be no punishment for Navarro’s position.
But in Geng Zhi’s opinion, CNN’s statement is actually not comprehensive. Navarro’s “White House Palace Fight” against Fuchs was indeed due to Trump’s side, but objectively speaking, this is also because CNN and other media have been fighting against Trump’s political purpose. Fuch did a certain degree of”deification”.
For example, CNN’s anchor Jake Tapper said two days ago that if Trump listened to experts such as Fuchs in February or March The recommendation is to wear a mask so that the United States can die a lot less people.
But this is obviously not true. In the early days of the epidemic in the United States in February and March this year, a large amount of available information showed that Foch did think that the risk of the epidemic in the United States was”very small” and it was not recommended that people wear masks.
Furthermore, according to media reports at the time, Fauci did not recommend that people wear masks, and it’s not just some defenses for him today.”The shortage of masks for medical personnel” proposed by the media, but he really believes that wearing masks for healthy people is useless and will not bring real effective protection.
(pictured on February 17 this year, Foch said in an interview that the risk of a new crown outbreak in the United States is very small, and said that he would wash his hands frequently Just don’t wear a mask)
For example, in a video interviewed by the American media in early March this year, Foch The problem of not wearing a mask has made the following statements:
1. Although you will see many people in China and South Korea wearing masks, they are now wearing them in the United States Masks are unnecessary.
2. During the outbreak, wearing a mask may make people feel safe, maybe the mask can block one or two droplets, but the mask will not provide people so For the kind of perfect protection.
3. Wearing a mask will bring some unexpected negative effects, such as people will unconsciously touch the mask, thereby increasing the risk of infection.
4. Masks are mainly used by medical staff and those who are sick. Other countries may wear masks for all people, but masks should still be used by those who really need them.
So, CNNs are too”deified” Fuchs, describing him as a conscience figure who knew the whole truth of the epidemic from the beginning, only The content of February and March was picked out, which caused Fudge to fall into an embarrassing situation and attracted the”eyes” of Navarro.
Not to mention, even CNN himself was picked out in February and March of this year and published a lot about”masks can’t stop”New Crown Virus”, and therefore prevent people from buying panic content.
So, it’s Na who attack Foch Varo, but it was CNNs who made Fudge a”target” in the White House. They are all pulling this expert who should have been devoted to the epidemic work into the”big vortex of political infighting” in the United States, known as”democracy”.
Finally, regarding the American epidemic that Fucci said in February and March this year is not serious, it is preventable and controllable, and the public does not need to wear a mask In the opinion of Geng Zhige, there is no need to blame him personally. Because four or five months ago, many infectious disease experts in the United States held similar views.
For example, another American infectious disease expert named Robert Murphy interviewed by our Global Times in early March this year also claimed to wear a mask It’s useless and can’t stop the new crown virus. And after we mentioned the situation of”asymptomatic infected people”, the expert still insisted that the mask could not stop the new crown virus, which would only give people a”false sense of security.”
He doesn’t seem to know much about China, and even asked us in the interview:”If a mask is really useful, why China Will there still be such a large-scale infection?”
From a scientific point of view, this expert and Foch and others would say these words at that time, mainly because of the United States At that time, there was indeed a lack of knowledge about the new coronavirus, just as our experts lacked knowledge about the new coronavirus emerging in Wuhan from the end of December to the beginning of January.
However, although for China, in the face of the first outbreak of an unknown brand-new virus, the new coronavirus, we may not be able to avoid Wuhan An extremely painful cognitive process, but for the United States, he already had a”shortcut” in February and March.
This shortcut is, in In February and March, Chinese people who had struggled with the epidemic for 2 months already knew the seriousness of the epidemic and the importance of masks. They also informed the world of this information, as long as the Fuchs could seriously refer to Drawing on China’s experience and lessons, it would not be possible to say words that were “unrealistic” to the Chinese at the time.
Unfortunately, because American society and public opinion have always had ideological arrogance and prejudice against China, such as in February this year A few Western media claimed that the outbreak in China was due to the fact that China’s system is not “democratic”, coupled with factors such as Chinese and Western language and cultural barriers and incorrect information, the results from February to early March this year, regardless of whether it is Fuchs, CNN Still Trump, he was not calling on the United States to take proactive and strict measures to prevent and control, nor was he aware of the greater epidemic prevention effect of the mask, until the United States re-examined the plight of Wuhan, the epidemic situation continued to run out of control, Fuchs and CNNs Only realized that this virus is terrible, only realized that if you want to effectively prevent the epidemic, you must wear a mask.
So we just said This is not a problem for Fucci alone. This is the price the entire nation of the United States is paying for its arrogance and ignorance.
Of course, some people, including Foch, later realized the seriousness of the problem and wanted to make a change. Lamp and his supporters have always refused to accept reality and refused to change, which makes Trump the biggest source of uncontrolled epidemic in the United States.
As for Navarro, he can still say that”blocking China can effectively protect the United States from infection”, which lacks a minimum awareness of the virus, It can only prove that he is indeed a person who”lives in his own world” as Fudge said…
