DONALD TRUMP has reaffirmed that China should pay the rest of the world $10 trillion in reparations for Covid-19.
In a statement, the former president described the pandemic as "the worst event in world history" amid what he says are "unanimous" reports that Covid-19 originated from a lab in Wuhan, rather than from a local wet market.
Trump also went after his former chief medical adviser Dr Anthony Fauci, who has been accused of involved in China's cover-up operation.
He also reminded everyone that he suggested Covid-19 came from a lab back in 2020, and that the World Health Organization's subsequent investigation was not impartial.
"It is now unanimous, and I have been proven right (once again) that the initial World Health Organization Report on the Wuhan Lab was flawed and must be redone, this time by a truly transparent investigation," Trump wrote.
"We were right about the China Virus from the beginning, and now the entire world sees it.
"This is why the Chine Communist Party should pay $10 trillion in global reparations for what they allowed to happen, the worst event in world history.
Trump roasts Fauci in latest statement, demands CCP pay $10 trillion in “reparations:”

"Even here in the United States, the so-called experts like Dr Fauci were wrong about the Wuhan lab and China's role the entire time.
"Just think how bad things would have gotten if I followed Dr Fauci's advice and never closed down travel from China (and other things)?
"Dr Fauci likes to say that he is 'science,' when in fact he is merely science fiction!"
In the past few weeks, Trump has hit out at those who accused him of racism and peddling conspiracy theories when he claimed Covid originated in a Chinese laboratory, particularly given that no such accusations were thrown at Joe Biden after he gave credence to the idea last month.
Mere hours after Biden announced an investigation would be taking place into the idea, Facebook lifted their ban on comments suggesting about a Wuhan lab-leak.
