If anyone has any doubts that China is an enemy of the USA, maybe this nypost.com headline will convince: “Thousands of counterfeit COVID vax cards from China seized by CBP this year.” And another on the fraud front: “Nikola receives $2M government grant weeks after founder criminally charged.” In the accompanying article by Lydia Moynihan, she writes the boss lied “to investors about ‘nearly all aspects of the business.’”
