Trump threatens China with big price ‘for what they’ve done to the world’
The United States President ‘Donald Trump’ has again hit out at China over the coronavirus, promising Beijing will “pay a big price for what they’ve done to the world.”
“It wasn’t your fault that this happened, it was China’s fault,” Trump said in a video from the White House Wednesday, in which he touted his own recovery from the virus that has infected multiple top administration officials, and touted a supposed cure.
“China’s going to pay a big price what they’ve done to this country.”
According to Hong kong CNN, Beijing will have been expecting this type of rhetoric following Trump’s infection, his aggressive language — reminiscent of similar threats made toward Iran earlier in his presidency — comes at a seriously volatile time between the US and China, both diplomatically and militarily.
China has been advancing its territorial claims in the South China Sea, the Himalayas, and over the self-ruled island of Taiwan, all areas where the US is already engaged militarily or could easily be dragged in by any conflict.
In recent weeks, the People’s Liberation Army has released a flurry of videos touting its ability to take on the US, while state media has run propaganda warning Washington not to test Beijing, and playing up the 70th anniversary of China’s entry into the Korean War, known in Chinese as the “War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea.
“Trump’s promises to make China “pay” is more likely a reference to pushing Beijing on trade, a key focus of his administration, but even there, it is not clear that continued aggression will pay off, with both countries hurting from the ongoing trade war and China becoming increasingly intransigent after months of stalled negotiations.
Beijing may be hoping for a reset come November, whether Trump wins a second term and feels able to tone down his rhetoric, or is replaced by Democratic candidate Joe Biden.
Group debunks Fani-Kayode’s claim of planned defection by 3 governors

Sept 17, 2021
The Northern Youths Leaders Forum (NYLF) says Gov. Bala Mohammed of Bauchi State has not and will never defect to APC as claimed by the party’s latest entrant, Femi Fani-Kayode
The National President of the Forum, Elliot Afiyo made the declaration at a news conference on Friday in Yola.
He said the claim by Fani-Kayode during his defection to APC that Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu State) and Gov. Seyi Makinde (Oyo State) were on their way to APC through his influence was also untrue.
He said NYLF was in touch with Gov. Mohammed and he confirmed that he had never at any time discussed the issues of defection with Fani-Kayode.
“We state clearly, without mincing words that Gov. Bala Mohammed has not and will never defect to APC and also, he has never at any time discussed the issue of defection with Fani-Kayode.
“Bala Mohammed is a nationalist who always placed national interest above his personal interest.’’
Afiyo also appealed to political parties in Adamawa to collapse their structures and support Gov. Ahmadu Fintiri in 2023 for a second tenure.
He said the NYLF was highly impressed by the infrastructural development Fintiri executed in Adamawa in only two years.
