Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Thursday night, Sean slammed the Chinese government’s response to the global Coronavirus pandemic; saying the Communist regime could have prevented a worldwide catastrophe.
“The red tape has been cut, the FDA is acting, the President is acting at unprecedented speed… We’re also in the midst of a major worldwide pandemic. Sadly, this crisis might have been prevented if not for the corrupt actions of the communist Chinese government,” said Hannity.
“According to a study, 95% of all virus cases may have been prevented if China didn’t try to hide and cover-up this deadly disease at every important moment,” he added. “We can’t trust anything coming from China’s government. As early as December they silenced doctors on the front lines.”

HANNITY EXCLUSIVE: Trump Reveals He ‘Closed the Borders to China’ During Coronavirus Outbreak
President Trump spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night on a number of serious issues facing the country; revealing that he “closed the borders” with China after learning of their Coronavirus outbreak.
“A lot of things are happening. Our economy is doing fantastic. We got hit with the Coronavirus and that was a surprise. I started hearing about it very quietly a couple of months ago from China. Against the advice of a lot of professionals I closed the borders to China, that’s why we have a very small number of people that we have to worry about,” said the President.
“I closed the borders against the advice of a lot of people, and it turned out to be a very wise decision. Otherwise we would have had a lot of people coming in during the course of a number of weeks,” he added.
