(TheConservativeNews.org) – The theory that COVID-19 originated in a lab, rather than jumping from animals to humans, has gained fresh credibility of late. On Tuesday, May 25, The Washington Post published a report on the reasons for this, noting the lack of evidence for other theories and China’s unwillingness to facilitate independent investigation into the virus’ origins. The report noted that the Trump administration’s “anti-Chinese rhetoric [allowed] skeptics to ignore its claims” in relation to the lab leak theory.
Of course, the mainstream media’s new interest in this initially ridiculed idea has been noticed by former President Donald Trump. In a statement released on Tuesday, he slammed major news outlets, pointing to the fact he was “badly criticized, as usual” for suggesting the virus came from a lab. “Now,” he said, “everyone is agreeing that [he] was right.”
There’s still no proof of where or how exactly the virus originated. However, China’s stubborn refusal to allow investigation into the matter is increasingly raising suspicions. Donald Trump is to be commended for highlighting this possibility as early as he did.
