President Trump holds a briefing in the White House Rose Garden.
Thank you very much good afternoon. Thank you. I'm here today to talk about our relationship with China and several new measures to protect American security and prosperity China's pattern of misconduct as well known for decades, they've ripped off the United States like no one has ever done before hundreds of billions of dollars a year were lost dealing with China, especially over the years during the prior administration. China rated our factories offshore our jobs gutted our Restore our intellectual property and violated their commitments under the World Trade Organization To make matters worse, they are considered a developing nation, getting all sorts of benefits that others, including the United States, are not entitled to, but I've never solely blamed China for this, they were able to get away with theft like no one was able to get away with before because of. Politicians and frankly past presidents, but unlike those who came before my administration negotiated and fought for what was right, it's called fair and reciprocal treatment. China has also unlawfully claimed territory in the Pacific Ocean, threatening freedom of navigation and international trade, and they broke their word to the world on ensuring the autonomy of Hong Kong. The United. Swanson open and constructive relationship with China but achieving that relationship requires us to vigorously defend our National interests. The Chinese government has continually violated its promises to us and so many other Nations these plain facts cannot be overlooked or swept aside the world is now suffering as a result of the malfeasance of the Chinese government. China's cover up. The Wuhan virus allowed the disease to spread all over the world, instigating a global pandemic that has caused more than 100000 American lives and over a million lives worldwide. Chinese officials ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health Organization and pressured the World Health Organization to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities countless lives. Been taken and profound economic hardship has been inflicted all around the globe. They strongly recommended against me doing the early band from China, but I did it anyway. it was proven to be 100 percent correct. China has total control over the World Health Organization, despite only paying 40 million dollars per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately 450 million dollars a year we have. The reforms that it must make and engage with them directly, but they have refused to act because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms. We will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other world wide and deserving urgent Global public health needs The world needs answers from China on the virus we must have. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all of the parts of China? It went nowhere else. It didn't go to Beijing. It went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States, the death and destruction caused by this is incalculable. We must have answers not only for us but for the rest of the world this pde. Has underscored the crucial importance of building up America's economic independence, reassuring our critical supply chain and protecting America's scientific and technological advances for years, The government of China has conducted illicit espionage to steal our industrial secrets of which there are many today. I will issue a proclamation to better secure our nation's vital University research. To suspend the entry of certain foreign nationals from China who we have identified as potential security risks, I am also taking action to protect the integrity of America's financial system. By far the best in the world. I am instructing my presidential working group on financial markets to study the differing practices of Chinese companies listed on the US financial markets with the goal of protecting American investors investment firms. Should not be subjecting their clients to the hidden and under risks Associated with financing Chinese companies that do not play by the same rules. Americans are entitled to fairness and transparency. several of the most significant actions we're taking pertain to deeply troubling situations unfolding in hong-kong this week, China unilaterally imposed control over hong-kong security This was. Violation of Beijing's treaty obligations with the United Kingdom in the declaration of 1980, - four and explicit provisions of Hong Kong's basic law. It has 20 - seven years to go. the Chinese Government's move against Hong-kong is the latest in a series of measures that are diminishing the city's long-standing and very proud status this is a tragedy. The people of hong-kong the people of China and indeed the people of the world, China claims it is protecting National security, but the truth is that hong-kong was secure and prosperous as a free society. Beijing's decision reverses all of that. it extends the reach of China's invasive state security apparatus into what was formerly a bashing of Liberty China's latest incursion, along with other recent developments that degraded the territory's freedoms makes clear that. There is no longer sufficiently autonomous to warrant a special treat that we have afforded the territory since the handover. China has replaced its promise for of one country to.
