Nikki Haley, a Republican Party presidential candidate in the United States, said on Tuesday that COVID was most likely created in a Chinese laboratory and called for a reduction in US aid to China.
“COVID-19 likely came from a Chinese lab. Cut US aid. Not a cent to Communist China,” Haley tweeted on Tuesday. Haley recently said that if voted to power, she will cut every cent in foreign aid for countries that hate the US. This includes China, Pakistan and other adversaries as “a strong America doesn’t pay off the bad guys”.
“I will cut every cent in foreign aid for countries that hate us. A strong America doesn’t pay off the bad guys. A proud America doesn’t waste our people’s hard-earned money. And the only leaders who deserve our trust are those who stand up to our enemies and stand beside our friends,” Haley, the Former Governor of South Carolina and former US ambassador to the UN, wrote in an op-ed for New York Post.
Last year, America spent USD 46 billion on foreign aid, according to Haley. That is far more than any other country. Taxpayers have a right to know where their money is going and what it is being used for. They will be surprised to learn that a large portion of it is used to fund anti-American countries and causes.
On February 15 (local time), Grand Old Party (GOP) leader Haley formally launched her 2024 presidential campaign, pitching herself to voters as part of a “new generation” of Republican leaders who can win at the ballot box.
Haley is the first Indian American woman to run for president in the Republican Party. As former South Carolina governor and US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley took the stage, she introduced herself as the proud daughter of Indian immigrants, pitching a new future for the Republican Party.
According to Haley’s Op-ed, the US has given Iran more than USD 2 billion over the last few years, despite the fact that its government is getting closer to the murderous thugs in Iran who shout “Death to America!” and launch attacks on our troops.
“The Biden administration resumed military aid to Pakistan, though it’s home to at least a dozen terrorist organizations and its government is deeply in hock to China. Team Biden restored half a billion dollars to a corrupt United Nations agency that’s supposed to help the Palestinian people but in fact covers for deeply anti-Semitic propaganda against our ally Israel,” she said.
The United States has given hundreds of millions of dollars to Zimbabwe, a country with one of the world’s most anti-American voting records.
Despite the obvious threat China poses to Americans, American taxpayers continue to fund Communist China’s ridiculous environmental programmes. We give money to Belarus, which is close to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. We even give money to Communist Cuba, which our own government has designated as a state sponsor of terrorism, according to Haley’s New York Post op-ed.
Earlier this month, World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus had said that the organization will continue pushing until it finds an answer to how the Covid-19 pandemic started, following a report suggesting it had abandoned the search.
“We need to continue to push until we get the answer,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told reporters, referring to the search for the origins of the virus that first began spreading in China in late 2019.
