Donald Trump

President Trump is pulling out all the stops to contain the coronavirus.

But the President just got some bad news.

Donald Trump suffered the one coronavirus defeat that America could not afford.

President Trump and other senior administration officials have made it clear China will pay a price for allowing the coronavirus to escape their country and paralyze the global economy.

China claims the outbreak began when the virus jumped from bats to humans in Wuhan wet markets where local residents eat animals in unsanitary conditions.

President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called China out for that lie and stated in forceful terms that the virus actually escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

But in an interview with National Geographic, Dr. Anthony Fauci undercut the President and handed China a major propaganda victory.

The fake news media is always trying to drive a wedge between the President and Dr. Fauci.

All too often, Dr. Fauci falls into this trap because he is always looking to maintain his credibility with the left so he tries to dance up to the line of criticizing the President without calling him out by name.

Dr. Fauci did this by taking the bait on National Geographic’s question about the origin of the virus.

The classic misinformation game National Geographic and Dr. Fauci play is falsely claiming the President saying the outbreak originated in a Wuhan lab is the same thing as saying China created the virus in a laboratory.

“If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated—the way mutations have naturally evolved. A number of very qualified evolutionary biologists have said that everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that it evolved in nature and then jumped species,” Dr. Fauci stated.

Dr. Fauci refused to even entertain the idea that the virus escaped from a laboratory; because since the virus originated in the wild, it didn’t matter if lax security at a Wuhan lab allowed the virus to seep out into the world.

“But that means it was in the wild to begin with. That’s why I don’t get what they’re talking about [and] why I don’t spend a lot of time going in on this circular argument,” Dr. Fauci declared.

The origin of the virus matters greatly.

President Trump holds a much stronger hand in demanding China pay restitution for the death and economic ruin from the virus outbreak if China’s negligence and incompetence at the Wuhan Institute of Virology caused the outbreak.

Now that Dr. Fauci repeated Chinese propaganda, the Communist government in Beijing will hold out his uninformed comments as evidence China is not at fault for the coronavirus outbreak.
