Although it was once dismissed as a conspiracy theory, the unconfirmed belief that a laboratory in Wuhan is the origin of the new crown virus has won trust. Now former U.S. President Trump is using this shift in ideas in the scientific community to agitate his supporters.

At a rally in Ohio on the night of June 26, Trump said triumphantly that he was proven right.

He mentioned his opinion that the new coronavirus was artificially manufactured in a scientific way in a laboratory in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

“I said it came from Wuhan-it came from that laboratory,” he told his supporters. Both men and women at the scene wore red “Make America Great Again” hats and gathered at the scene southwest of Cleveland. He was talking about the source of this deadly virus.
