The Wuhan coronavirus has caused damage across the nation that will take years to repair.
Supposedly, the virus originated in a Chinese wet market, as a freak accident.
But Trump has five words for China that could bring down the country.
President Donald Trump has been at the forefront of the battle against the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, since it first hit our shores.
He assembled a team of leading experts to find a way to protect Americans from the virus while working to find a cure.
And now, Trump has five words about the virus that could bring down the ones responsible.
Daily Caller reports:
“Have you seen anything at this point that gives you a high degree of confidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the origin of the virus?” Fox News reporter John Roberts asked Trump.
“Yes, I have,” Trump responded. “And I think the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves because they’re like the public relations agency for China.”

Trump said he couldn’t share what exactly gives him a high degree of confidence that the virus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
“I can’t tell you that,” he said. “I’m not allowed to tell you that.”
The President seems certain, however, that there is a correlation between the novel coronavirus and an ongoing cover-up operation between the World Health Organization and the Chinese government.
However, later in the same press conference Trump acknowledged that there are “a lot of theories” on the origins of the coronavirus, which has infected 3.2 million people worldwide and killed 233,000.
“We have people looking at it very, very strongly,” Trump said. “I think we’re going to have a very good answer, eventually. And China might even tell us. China may tell us.”
Trump’s comments came hours after the Office of the Director of National Intelligence confirmed in a statement Thursday that it is rigorously examining new information and intelligence to “determine whether the outbreak began through contact with infected animals or if it was the result of an accident at a laboratory in Wuhan.”
Evidence has not yet been released to the public, but many are very certain that the virus was not the result of a natural accident or mutation.
The very laboratory in question has been studying the effects and strains of coronaviruses in bats – the same animal that was allegedly consumed by patient zero, transmitting the first case of the virus.
It is becoming increasingly more likely that the virus escaped from this laboratory and began infecting Chinese citizens in Wuhan.
All that is certain now is that President Trump is doing all in his power to find the truth and to eradicate this virus along with his team of experts.
