DONALD TRUMP: I WAS ‘PROBABLY THE FIRST ONE TO SAY COVID CAME FROM A LAB IN WUHAN
In an interview with Fox News’ Mark Levin, Donald Trump noted that he was “probably the first” to link the Wuhan Institute of Virology to the spread of the Covid virus in 2020.
“I was probably the first one, I said it came from the lab in Wuhan… I was charging China so much money in tariffs and taxes that a lot of people said they did it to take me out,” he said.
According to RSBN, Trump underlined the likely reality that the coronavirus did in fact escape from a facility in China in an exclusive op-ed he penned for the Daily Mail earlier this year.
“Three years ago, I declared that COVID-19 almost certainly came from the Chinese Wuhan lab. Now, the world is finally admitting the truth. The cover-up of COVID-19’s origins is one of the greatest scandals in the history of the world. Millions of people all over the planet have died from the China Virus. The cost of the outbreak and the lying about its origins is incalculable, some say in excess of $50 trillion.”
In a 2020 article from The Guardian, they reported that then-U.S. Secretary of State in the Trump administration, Mike Pompeo, stated, “We know that there is a Wuhan Institute of Virology just a handful of miles away from where the wet market was.”
The alternate explanation postulates that the wet market in the Wuhan district of China was where the Covid virus first emerged.
President Trump claimed that China was the virus’s primary source in April 2020, stating, “China doesn’t want to see me re-elected.”
According to RSBN, Trump planned to exact revenge on the Communist powerhouse by enacting a four-year plan that would gradually phase out Chinese imports of necessities. Trump also claimed to punish China responsible for “unleashing” Covid on the world.
