Former President Trump on Saturday called for China to pay “reparations” for its role in the coronavirus pandemic amid a renewed debate around its origins.
Speaking at North Carolina’s GOP state convention, Trump said “the time has come” for the world to hold China accountable for its role in the pandemic.
“The time has come for America and the world to demand reparations and accountability from the Communist Party of China,” Trump said to applause. “China must pay, they must pay.”
The comment comes as the theory that COVID-19 originated in a laboratory in Wuhan, China gains renewed attention after previously being dismissed.
The World Health Organization released a report earlier this year dismissing the lab leak theory as “extremely unlikely.”
