President Trump on Tuesday skewered Beijing for floating an accusation that the U.S. military deliberately infected the Chinese people with coronavirus to make it appear as though the virus originated in China. “China was putting out information, which was false, that our military gave this to them. That was false,” Trump said at a press briefing at the White House. “And rather than having an argument, I have to call it where it came from. It did come from China.” “I did not appreciate the fact that China was saying our military gave it to them. Our military did not give it to anybody,” the president added. China has disputed that the outbreak began in China, and a foreign ministry spokesman suggested that the U.S. military may have brought the virus to the country.
