Trump: I Do Not Regret Saying ‘the Chinese Virus,’ China Said Our Soldiers Started the Virus

‘They accused us of having done it through our soldiers’


HEMMER: "You’ve called this the Chinese virus, you did not use that today."

TRUMP: "Well, look, I have a very good relationship with President Xi and they went through a lot. Some people say other things, they went through a lot, they lost thousands of people. They've been through hell. I’ve always said, whether it's Ebola or so many — I could name ten of them, you take our wonderful place in Connecticut, I’m sure they are not thrilled about the Lyme Disease, right, but they do name it after places. It came from China."
