Pompeo says that he is currently working with various counterparts around the world to come up with "precise mechanisms" to make China pay for upending the global economy and harming millions.
"I don't want to get out in front of what President Trump will ultimately decide, but I think we all know in this administration that we have to make sure that something like this can never happen again," Pompeo told Breitbart News Saturday.
In addition to cutting off at least some funding to the World Health Organization (WHO), Trump is reportedly looking at other avenues of hitting China where it hurts in order to prevent this type of thing from ever happening again.
"That means deterrence. That means setting up processes," Pompeo explained during the segment.
"The president has already stopped funding to the WHO so that we can evaluate that and figure out which pieces of the WHO might actually work and which pieces don't so that we can deliver good outcomes and keep Americans safe and make sure this doesn't happen again."
Pompeo also stated that the Trump administration wants the CCP to learn that there are real costs associated with the unleashing of a pandemic, which suggests that the repercussions will be severe.
"You know this – we say this all the time inside the United States but around the world, too – we have to hold nations accountable," Pompeo added.
"We have to hold nations accountable for the things and actions that they undertake which create risk, and in this case created enormous loss of life here in the United States."
The consensus among U.S. intelligence is that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) did, in fact, originate in Wuhan. However, the intelligence community has stopped short of declaring that it definitely "leaked" out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), China's only supposedly level-4 biolab.
If the WIV can be definitively linked to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), then this will also implicate a number of U.S. institutions that we showed are among its financial partners. These include the University of Alabama, the University of North Texas, and Harvard University.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a taxpayer-funded government agency, has also been giving cash to the WIV. And seeing as how the NIH is linked to the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), this also implicates Anthony Fauci, the deep state player who heads the NIAID and is also overseeing the pandemic.
The current acting Director of National Intelligence says that the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) originated either at a local wet market or at the WIV. It could not have come from anywhere outside of China, in other words.
But American investigators are still grappling with unequivocally pinpointing its source due to the fact that the CCP is obstructing all efforts to trace the origins of this virus. This suggests that the CCP might be trying to cover up the role it played in unleashing this pandemic.
"Sadly, we're not much further than we were weeks and weeks ago," Pompeo lamented, explaining that the investigation is not political in nature, but rather an attempt at helping the medical community worldwide fight this thing.
"The Chinese Communist Party has relentlessly deceived and denied information to the West. We have repeatedly asked to have teams go in and assist them to identify where the virus originated. We know it began in Wuhan, but we don't know from where or from whom, and those are important things."
