Trump: Now more people believe the virus originated in Wuhan I was right

Former U.S. President Donald Trump (Trump) said Tuesday, May 25, that his previous claim that the Chinese Communist virus (New Coronavirus) originated in a laboratory in Wuhan, China, is gaining more acceptance. In a statement, he said, “Everyone now agrees that I called Wuhan the source of COVID-19 (the Chinese Communist virus) early on, sometimes calling it the ‘Chinese virus.’ I was right.”

Recently leading public health officials, including Anthony Fauci, have also changed their tune and admitted that the virus could have come from a Chinese laboratory. Fauci recently said he was not convinced that the virus was naturally occurring. Instead, last year he said there was “strong (evidence) that the virus evolved from nature and then skipped species.

Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were among the first to blame lab leaks for the spread of the virus. It was obvious to me from the beginning, but I was harshly criticized as usual,” Trump said. Now they’re all saying ‘he (Trump) was right.’ Thank you!”

In April and May of last year, both Trump and Pompeo favored the idea that the virus came from the Wuhan Institute of Virus Research. Trump has emphasized this several times, even contradicting public statements from the intelligence community. He said at a news conference that he had “a high degree of confidence” that the virus came from a lab in Wuhan.

Trump and some Republicans in Congress have been pressuring Democrats to investigate the source of the virus. The White House, top U.S. public health officials and experts have also taken positions urging the WHO to conduct a deeper investigation into the source of the Chinese Communist virus.

Wisconsin U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R) told Fox News on Tuesday that the virus leak at the lab “has been hidden in plain sight for months, but the mainstream media just won’t bring it out. The day before, Pompeo told Fox that he believed the evidence would ultimately prove the inference that the virus had leaked from the lab was true.

According to the Wall Street Journal, which recently broke the story, three Wuhan Institute of Virus Research researchers were hospitalized in November 2019 with symptoms similar to those of the Chinese Communist virus.

The Wall Street Journal also recently reported that six miners at an abandoned Chinese copper mine suffered from a mysterious disease back in 2012, and three of them died. At the time, Chinese scientists from the Wuhan Institute of Virology were called in to investigate, and after taking samples from bats in the mine, several new coronaviruses were discovered.
