    The United States has more than 200 virus research and manufacturing laboratories around the world, manufacturing virus and bacteria weapons! The Ebola virus was most likely to have been released in Africa by the United States for human body experiments. Why is the United States capable of treating a critically ill patient? Naturally, if you can make virus, then you know the cure. In the past, Americans had been proceeding genocide in the world and in its own land. They treat blacks are not the human beings. They like to kill them. After the end of World War II, the United States colluded with Japan and obtained information on the development of bacterial weapons from Unit 731. The United States is believed to have been developing bacterial weapons with that large amount of information. Covid 19 has a great opportunity to be leaked from American laboratories. The root cause of e-cigarette transmission arcoss US is likely spreading Covid virus. Why the US does not allow WHO to conduct investigation? THEY ARE AFRAID. The United States should pay 30 trillion U.S. dollars to the world for compensation.

      It isn't wrong to implicate President Trump as feckless in his handling of the virus. First off, the shutdown was in response to the mediocre response from the Trump administration. Pres. Trump can brag about having foresight, but he isn't entitled to the facts of the situation. Pres. Trump barred Chinese citizens from coming to the United States, while roughly 300,000 Americans and extended families traveling back and forth between America and China (especially Wuhan, China) were unaffected. During the first quarter of this year, our death toll was increasing astronomically, and Pres. Trump dismissed the deaths as we speak. Secondly, Pelosi's trip to Chinatown wasn't extemporaneous or a response to Trump's action. It was planned prior.

    The striking similarities between Trump and Duterte (current Philippine president) has been glaring. From their ideology to their pandemic response, it’s so effing irritating and annoying to see how much they both are the same in lots of ways. I hope Filipinos will see this and think that if Duterte or his allies would stay in power, we’d be better off somewhere else than having to live in a dysfunctional country where the national government has no empathy for its citizens.

Terrified of gun reform and strengthening your argument saying that you're worried about the government taking over and being unable to defend yourselves. Yet you're so patriotic at the same time. Refusing to understand genuine statistics on deaths and deciding to refuse such a number purely based on the fact that you have no care of your fellow neighbours. I have never seen such a country in complete disarray and disrepair yet people willfully claim its still the best country in the world. You've all been brainwashed and pushed into a narrative that directly hypocrises you're own beliefs but you go ahead with it.
