(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.
