In move aimed at China, Republican politician Nikki Haley has stated that China’s Communist government needs to be held accountable for “lying” about the coronavirus pandemic. She has launched an online petition urging the United States Congress to act in this regard.
More than 40,000 people had signed the ‘Stop Communist China’ petition by Friday night, hours after being launched by the Indian-American politician who has set a goal of getting 100,000 signatures.
“China’s Communist government needs to be held accountable for their role in lying about the coronavirus pandemic, and the US Congress needs to respond — now,” said Haley, a former two-term governor of South Carolina and former US Ambassador to the United Nations.
“Join us in our fight to stop China from gaining influence in America and around the world. Sign this petition and please share with your friends,” she added.
“Sign our petition to stop the Chinese Communist government’s deception and manipulation. We need Congress to act NOW to prevent China’s growing influence,” the petition said.
