Sounding a long-held warning on China’s economic prowess, former President Donald Trump lamented on Newsmax how it has afforded to “take care of everybody,” namely Joe and Hunter Biden – all with money taken out of the U.S. to boot.
In an exclusive sitdown with Steve Cortes on Tuesday’s “Cortes & Pellegrino,” Trump even suggested China’s malign buying power effectively permitted it to obfuscate its complicity in spreading the global coronavirus pandemic.
“I said from the very beginning that’s where it came from,” Trump said of Wuhan, China, where the Wuhan Institute of Virology is located. “I think it’s obvious to smart people that’s where it came from. I had no doubt about it.
“I was criticized by the press, because China has a lot of people taken care of. They took care of Hunter; they took care of Joe. They took care of everybody, didn’t they?”
Trump added the media pushing the Democrats’ Russia narrative aided the distraction of China’s malfeasance in the COVID-19 infection that has killed 3.5 million worldwide.
“And people didn’t want to say China,” Trump added. “Usually they blame it on Russia. It was Russia, Russia, Russia.
