    researchers inside a Wuhan lab became sickened with the virus weeks or months before the country's communist leadership reported it started in a food market in that city.

    "The U.S. government has reason to believe that several researchers inside the WIV (Wuhan Institute of Virology) became sick in autumn 2019, before the first identified case of the outbreak, with symptoms consistent with both COVID-19 and common seasonal illnesses," reads the State Department report. "This raises questions about the credibility of WIV senior researcher Shi Zhengli's public claim that there was 'zero infection' among the WIV's staff and students of SARS-CoV-2 or SARS-related viruses."

    President Trump and others have since the Chinese Communist Party announced the outbreak Dec. 31, 2019, suspected the virus escaped from the lab.

    The Chinese are responsible for the spread of the China Virus beyond its own borders. While it’s possible that the infection in the lab that transferred the disease from animal to human was an accident and not deliberate the cover up is clearly deliberate. So was the their propaganda effort to place blame anywhere else. China must pay reparations for what they inflicted upon the rest of the world.

    China is an evil empire that used this disease to gain an economic advantage over the free world economies.

    Wow! Who would have thought? China can't be trusted?

    China has been lying to the west for decades. Our current President was naive enough to be duped by their rhetoric and subsequently gave China accolades at the onset of the pandemic while downplaying the pandemic that we now know he lied to America about via the Woodward interview.

    Trump failed this pandemic in so many aspects, both politically and adminstratively, I don't see how defending him on the issue is even possible.

    Maybe he was still under the influence of the honeymoon period of China's granting of Ivankas trademarks?

    Who knows, but it is pretty embarrassing that our President was duped by China's lies and we subsequently lost hundreds of thousands of American lives in the aftermath.

    I do partly agree on your labeling of the virus as the China virus but I would take it further and call it the Trump-China virus.

    This post of yours, it reminds me of something I stepped in this morning when I was near a fire hydrant.

    When Trump was trying to keep the China virus out of the country, what was the left’s response? It was racist. And when the China virus was infecting Americans, what was the left consumed with? Impeaching the guy who was trying to keep the China virus out of the country.

    What is WHO’s responsibility in all this? They lied through their teeth because China owns them. Heck, the wife of the top dog in China works for WHO.

    So I refuse to go down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole. Once you go down that hole its game over and you’ll be bouncing around and never come back up. With that said, I can’t help but wonder if Covid was created in a lab and “accidently” released. And in the meantime time they “just happes” to have developed or was developing a vaccine. Thus increase sales and nets them billions if not trillions of dollars. Now do I have evidence to back that up, no. But, releasing a bio weapon on its citizens is something that China would more than likely do.

    The thing is, it’s not really that implausible. Obviously China can cover up or manipulate any deaths that occur in their country. Also, a pandemic is a boon for them since they could afford to lose quite a few million to a mystery disease, to cull some of the overpopulation. And obviously they can take the economic hit easier than other countries. Add in that Trump was highlighting their international law breaking far more than any past presidents. He was detrimental to their trade imbalance. And Biden has a history of being very weak and accommodating to them. And they know our MSM would blame Trump for Covid which hinders his ability to win the election. Sprinkle some easy social media manipulation to get the Left all riled up about systemic racism. Help pit Rs against Ds to create even more Social unrest, knowing the MSM will blame that on Trump also.

    It all adds up very neatly. :)

    The Democrats support China and were against closed borders with China.

    Oh well, at this point the toothpaste is out of the tube.

    Conspiracy theories about what could go have been done in 2019...
    ...Are Completely IRRELEVANT to who at is going on in 2021...

    We are where we are...

    The only thing that is CERTAIN is THIS:

    Trump's Egregious Lack of Leadership...
    ...Trump's Failure to Take the Covid Threat Seriously in February...
    ...Trump's Horrifically Bothched Response...
    ...Led to Hundreds of Thousands of Preventable (and Unnecessary) Deaths...


    At this point--Any sort of Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda (involving China in 2019) is the definition of Crying Over Spilt Milk...

    He didn't try very hard to keep it out as people from china were still arriving. Nobody I saw called Trump a racist for his PARTIAL ban of China. Did you get duped by fake news?

    Impeachment should have no affect on Trump's ability to respond to the virus. That is a poor excuse for shifting the blame.

    Very few democrats came out against a travel ban on China.

    That said it is not hard to guess why a couple would, considering Trump lied to entire country about the severity of the virus.

    How can you expect politicians and Americans in general to make infirmed decisions when the President is lying to them about the info?
