(RepublicanWire.org) – On Saturday, 45th President and 2024 White House contender Donald Trump blasted the Chinese Communist Party for their handling of the Covid-19 virus that spread around the world and killed millions.

“Three years ago, I declared that COVID-19 almost certainly came from the Chinese Wuhan lab. Now, the world is finally admitting the truth,” Trump began. “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.”

“Now it’s time to hold China—and the corrupt forces who have facilitated this colossal suppression of facts—accountable for the damage they have inflicted upon all of humanity,” he continued. “According to recent reports, the U.S. Department of Energy has concluded a Wuhan lab leak is the likely cause of the pandemic. The FBI reached the same conclusion. The facts are now plain for all to see.”

“When I first suggested in early 2020 that the virus may have come from a lab, it was called ‘racist,’ a ‘conspiracy theory,’ and a claim for which ‘there is no evidence,’” the president explained. “The entire globalist establishment—from the World Health Organization, to the media, to Anthony Fauci and the public health authorities, to the corrupt Silicon Valley tech giants, to Joe Biden—worked relentlessly to silence, censor, and shut down any suggestion that the so-called ‘lab leak theory’ could be true.”

Trump went on to explain that anyone, including scientists, who spoke out against the narrative pushed by the establishment was silenced and banned on social media.

“We all know the real reason for these censorship campaigns. The ‘lab leak’ did not serve their political agendas. So they did the Chinese Communist Party’s dirty work, and effectively imposed China’s propaganda on the Western world,” the 2024 Republican frontrunner wrote. “There must now be a reckoning. The sinister censorship regimes in the United States and throughout the West must be dismantled and destroyed.”

President Trump then went on to explain the World Health Organization’s role in advising him against closing the country to Chinese visitors at the beginning of the pandemic as well as their rejection of the lab leak theory. Ultimately, Trump took the bold step to terminate the U.S.’s relationship with the WHO leading to $450 million returning to the country.

Liberals for some reason are discounting any and all theory — regardless of evidence — that includes the very idea that COVID-19 was developed in a lab in Wuhan. This is especially true if said theory says that the virus may have been intentionally released. But in 2009, Hillary Clinton was warning of exactly this scenario.

Clinton called President Trump a racist when he said the virus may have originated in a lab in Wuhan. But was the idea racist in 2009 when she said the Wuhan Institute of Virology could be a source of “biological weapons proliferation.” The source is a cable obtained by Wikileaks, which plainly states these concerns:

The U.S. believes participants would benefit from hearing about your experiences assisting China in setting up a Biosafety Level-4 (BSL-4) laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology from the export control and intangible technology transfer perspectives. We are particularly interested to know how China plans to vet incoming foreign researchers from countries of biological weapons proliferation concern.

Information Exchange participants could benefit from a presentation on how you vet visa applicants to prevent intangible technology transfer to countries of chemical and biological weapons proliferation concerns.

This concern has existed long before COVID-19 was a thing. Now, any time someone so much as mentions the very increasingly likely possibility that the Wuhan lab developed the Coronavirus, they are shouted down as a “racist” by everyone on the Left — all of whom seem to say that any speculation, even backed with evidence, is racist and contributes to “anti-Asian bigotry.” The problem with this is that no one hates Asians. We simply want the truth about what is going on.

Hillary Clinton is now singing a different tune, joining the “bigotry” crowd in saying that China couldn’t and wouldn’t unleash a biological weapon on the world. Except, they would.

You know how Biden seems to be pretty sure that COVID-19 was not the result of a lab leak? Well, it turns out that he actually doesn’t know because there’s a ton of unexamined evidence, much of which may point to that possibility, but he chose to ignore it and declare it a closed issue. He seems to have done that too soon.

The New York Times surprised everyone by reporting, honestly, that there is a bunch of “unexamined evidence” intelligence officials told the White House about. After details of this evidence came out, Biden declared a “90 day sprint” to determine the origins of the virus. Previously, Biden, Democrats, and “fact checkers” all denied this. Via the Times:

“President Biden’s call for a 90-day sprint to understand the origins of the coronavirus pandemic came after intelligence officials told the White House they had a raft of still-unexamined evidence that required additional computer analysis that might shed light on the mystery, according to senior administration officials.”

“The officials declined to describe the new evidence,” the report says, noting that the evidence is likely liked to a lab leak:

“But the revelation that they are hoping to apply an extraordinary amount of computer power to the question of whether the virus accidentally leaked from a Chinese laboratory suggests that the government may not have exhausted its databases of Chinese communications, the movement of lab workers and the pattern of the outbreak of the disease around the city of Wuhan.”

Biden promises that the results of the investigation will be made public, but don’t count on it. We’re not exactly dealing with the most transparent presidential administration here.
