Romney urges creation of task force to counter Chinese propaganda
Utah Republican Senator Mitt Romney is joining two other senators in urging President Trump to counter Chinese propaganda related to the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Romney, Colorado Senator Cory Gardner and Florida Senator Marco Rubio joined forces to send a letter to the President urging the creation of a National Security Council task force.
The purpose of the group would be to counter what the Republican senators call a manipulation of facts by the Chinese government.
The senators say the Chinese deliberately tried to downplay the seriousness of the outbreak and are now trying to blame the U.S. for the spread of the virus.
