Meanwhile, Not a hint of remorse or apology from China for inflicting covid19 on the entire planet.

Had China played its cards right, it could have really looked like a great country while Trump has been on the loose. With the problems in Hong Kong, Taiwan, the naked aggression in the South China Sea, the Uighur people, COVID - 19, etc., China wants to be treated equally like everybody else so long as that doesn't mean criticizing its bully-like behavior.

It should be China leaving the security council as currently they are amongst the biggest threats to worldwide security, both militarily and economically. Time has come for a global embargo on Chinese goods and in general doing business with China. The arrogance and hubris displayed by the CCP is dangerous. They want the world to be subservient to them. They don't believe in human rights nor do they believe in being a good international citizen.
