Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said Monday she doesn’t “doubt that for one second” that China intentionally blocked information about the dangers of the novel coronavirus and allowed the disease to spread so it would not be the only country that suffered, and it “would not surprise me at all” if China’s President Xi Jinping lied to President Donald Trump about the disease.
“I don’t know if the virus got out by accident,” Haley said on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.” “What I do believe strongly is that they knew the virus was out there and they knew they were going to suffer, and they didn’t want to be the only country that suffered, so they let it get out to the rest of the world. I don’t doubt that for one second.”
