Watch Trump Advisor's Bonkers Rant Pushing COVID-19 Conspiracies - 2020-07-04
In an obvious attempt to deflect blame from President Trump's dismal handling of the coronavirus pandemic in America, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro went on an extended rant on Friday, tossing out unproven conspiracy theories as if he were holding court in a QAnon forum.
Navarro, a now-infamous, bomb-throwing advocate of Trump's more than suggested that China was somehow able to "weaponize" the virus to kill Americans, while at the same time allowing many other countries to contain the spread.
China "spawned the virus," Navarro said. "They hid the virus. They sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationals over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."
