(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Chinese state media branded US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ‘evil’ over his repeated claims that the coronavirus accidentally leaked from a government lab amid an escalating war of words between Washington and Beijing.
Media in China also blamed President Trump for ‘trying to impede global efforts in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic’ in a separate editorial attack.
News reports from several outlets operated by the Chinese Communist Party ran vicious attacks on Pompeo on Monday, with the Xinhua agency calling him ‘one of the worst secretaries of the state in American history’.
The attacks came after Pompeo doubled down on his allegations that the COVID-19 virus originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology during an ABC News interview on Sunday, saying: ‘I can tell you that there is a significant amount of evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan.’
