Jen Psaki quizzed on migrants’ Covid vaccination status
The former President of the United States had openly labelled the COVID-19 virus as the “China Virus”. Speaking to journalist Sharri Markson, the President detailed that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the likely source of the virus.
“Some intelligence is classified and I can’t talk about it” said the former President.
“But it’s most likely, and when I say most likely, like 95 percent, came from the Wuhan lab”.
Believing the Chinese already knew about the virus, Mr Trump went on to reveal an alarming allegation.
He said: “I started hearing stories… that there were lots of body bags outside of the lab.”

Using the intelligence to back up his theory that the virus came from the lab, he said: “I heard that a long time ago. And if they did, in fact, have body bags, that was one little indication wasn’t it?”
The allegations come amid fears that the lab was genetically modifying the virus, using technology to make it 1,000 times stronger.
Taking things further, Mr Trump went on to say: “I think it was probably an accident, I don’t think it was on purpose. If it was, that’s essentially war.”

Mr Trump went on to state how he thinks the virus escaped the lab, saying: “I don’t know if they had bad thoughts, or whether it was gross incompetence.”
“A scientist walked out and had lunch outside in a park or something with the girlfriend and he had it and she had it,” he said.
A former COVID-19 investigator, David Asher said the Chinese were undergoing research in the lab, claiming that it was “definitely related to biological warfare ambitions.”
But Mr Trump, in a balance to the argument claimed he would give China the “benefit of the doubt”, and stated he did not think it was a weapon.
“I really don’t think it was, (a biological weapon), but nobody can really know for sure,” Mr Trump said.

Contributions to the WHO in numbers
The intelligence spoken of by Mr Trump could be backed up by an attempted cover-up by the Chinese.
A once accessible online database that originated from the lab have since all been methodically taken offline by Chinese authorities.
In September 2019, the virus database at the WIV was taken offline, and in doing so, saw some 22,000 coronavirus samples go with it.
Gilles Demaneuf, a data analyst from an international team of scientists called DRASTIC said: “The removal of access to basically all the virus databases of the WIV, around 15 of them, cannot be described as anything other than a deliberate attempt to prevent a proper investigation.”
WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus
Covering up for the Chinese, the Director General of the World Health Organisation, WHO, said that China’s transparency surrounding the virus during the initial outbreak was “very impressive and beyond words”.
Mr Trump, who famously moved to withdraw the United States from the WHO slated the WHO and Director General Dr Tedros.
The former President said: “The WHO is owned and controlled by China. I dropped out of the World Health Organisation. I thought it was ridiculous.”

Former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo was also in agreement with Donald Trump in his rhetoric surrounding the WHO.
“They failed, they failed because of the absence of a backbone,” said Mr. Pompeo, referring to the WHO’s inability to stand up and demand full access to information and evidence from China.
With global deaths from the COVID-19 virus standing at 4.5 million from 219 million cases, the virus remains one of the most deadly events in modern times.
