Obama's NIH Sent $3.7M to Wuhan Lab Where Coronavirus May Have Originated. Trump's Stopping It

Back in 2015, when Barack Obama was president, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) sent a $3.7 million grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a lab that grew coronaviruses and injected them into animals. It is quite feasible that the novel coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 global pandemic leaked from that lab, and U.S. Intelligence sources have been saying that the virus came from a Level-4 lab in Wuhan. During his coronavirus press conference on Friday, President Donald Trump pledged to stop the funding.
"Why would the U.S. give a grant like that to China?" a reporter asked.
"The Obama administration gave them a grant of $3.7 million, I've been hearing about that, and we've instructed that if any grant going to that area — we're looking at it, literally, about an hour ago — and also early in the morning, we will end that grant very quickly," Trump said. "But it was granted quite a while ago. They were granted quite a substantial amount of money."
He asked the reporter when the grant was given, and she said the NIH granted it in 2015.
"Who was president, then, I wonder?" Trump quipped.
Who, indeed? Why none other than Barack Obama.
Last Friday, the conservative-leaning animal rights organization White Coat Waste Project alerted The Washington Examiner to the grant, and intelligence sources began to converge on the Wuhan lab earlier this week.
The Wuhan Institute of Virology, the most advanced laboratory of its kind on the Chinese mainland, is based a mere twenty miles from the infamous wildlife market which was originally thought to be the location of the transfer of the virus from animals to humans. The sequencing of the coronavirus genome has traced the virus back to bats found in Yunnan caves. The Wuhan Institute was experimenting on bats from the area already known to be the source of COVID-19.
Naturally, the revelation that American taxpayers bankrolled the lab that may be responsible for the virus caused no little consternation.
