(ConservativePeak.Com)- Left-wing media outlets are about to eat a huge serving of humble pie, now that President Donald Trump is promising to release “conclusive” evidence that proves the Chinese coronavirus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
For months, left-wing news outlets and social media giants Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have been banning users who claim that the virus didn’t originate in a Chinese wet market but instead came from a virus laboratory in Wuhan city. President Donald Trump effectively confirmed the rumors during a Sunday night Fox News town hall, in which he said the White House will soon produce “conclusive” evidence that shows the virus came from a lab.
“I don’t think there is any question about it,” Trump told Bret Baier, who asked him whether China was responsible for allowing the pandemic to spread across the world.
President Trump also said that his government “will be giving a very strong report on what we think happened, and I think it will be very conclusive.”
Combine this with the president’s recent claims that he has been shown evidence the virus leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan, and it’s clear that he is about to prove a lot of people right, and a lot of people wrong.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has appeared in several media interviews in recent weeks saying that same thing. On Sunday morning, Pompeo told ABC News that the administration knows where the virus came from.
“We have said from the beginning, this virus originated in Wuhan, China,” he said. “We took a lot of grief for that from the outset. But I think the whole world can see now,” he added.
“Remember, China has a history of infecting the world and they have a history of running sub-standard laboratories,” Pompeo added. “These aren’t the first times. That we have had the world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab.”
The U.S. Secretary of State would not be allowed to repeatedly make this claim, as he has over the last several weeks unless the president agreed.
During the Fox News town hall, President Trump did say he doesn’t believe China released the virus on purpose, but that he does believe the Chinese Communist Party allowed people to continue leaving the country potentially as a way of ensuring they weren’t the only country that suffered.
“Personally I think they made a horrible mistake,” he said. “They didn’t want to admit it. We wanted to go in but they didn’t want us there. World Health wanted to go in.”
I wonder if Twitter will reinstate the account of market news website ZeroHedge for making the same claim some weeks ago…
