(ReliableNews.org) – The US is currently investigating whether or not China created the coronavirus in a lab. During a recent interview, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said there’s “enormous evidence” that’s what happened. Now, the Chinese state-run media is on the attack.
Pompeo made those remarks on May 3, during an interview with ABC’s “This Week.”
Secretary of State Pompeo asked if he has high confidence that Coronavirus came from a Chinese Lab
“There’s enormous evidence that that's where this began.”

On May 5, a Global Times editorial called the US secretary of state a “degenerate” who’s an “evil” man who is “spitting poison.” The rant went on to claim the US doesn’t have any evidence to support its claims and said Pompeo is pushing “twisted facts” and “spewing falsehoods.”
It’s odd that China can spend this much energy attacking the US secretary of state but can’t seem to release accurate COVID-19 numbers. Pompeo made his claim and the American people haven’t seen the underlying evidence yet. However, why in the world would anyone believe the communist government of China who hid the virus and hoarded supplies over US officials who are fighting to slow the pandemic? That’s absurd.
As of May 5, more than 261,000 people have died from the virus worldwide. The Chinese government needs to worry about how to help the families of those people instead of siccing its media on the US.
