Well, well, well. This story is likely to ruffle a few feathers. Should it? You be the judge.
Here are the details, via Newsmax:
It has been widely reported the U.S. and Canada had helped fund the Wuhan, China, virology lab that is believed to have accidentally released the global coronavirus pandemic because of lax safety protocols, according to U.S. intelligence.

Now, it turns out that $3.7 million grant was awarded by Obama administration in 2015.
take our poll – story continues below
President Trump said, “The Obama administration gave them a grant of $3.7 million.”
He added, “I’ve been hearing about that, and we’ve instructed if any grants are going to that area – we were looking at that, literally, an hour ago and also early in the morning – we will end that grant very quickly.”
The Obama-Biden Administration reportedly gave $3.7 million to the Chinese lab in Wuhan that is the subject of the investigation into the origin of the coronavirus.

Obama funded the Wuhan Wiggle, with grants to the same lab, where it originated.
Where are all the Obama supporters, now? I want to admonish you, greatly.

I wonder how they’ll blame Trump for that too.

Let’s Think. Obama admin. Grants millions to Wuhan lab. Kerry visits China. Virus leaks from lab. Thousands of people die. USA terrorized socially and economically. China and WHO cover-up. Pelosi, Dems and media cover for China. “All Trump’s fault”. All this in an election year? https://t.co/rfjKuueZZd

From Daily Caller:
A Chinese official suggested Thursday that U.S. officials introduced coronavirus into China’s Wuhan region as the virus makes its way to the West from the communist nation.
Lijian Zhao, deputy director of China’s Foreign Ministry Information Department, said, “When did Patient Zero appear in the United States? How many people are infected? What is the name of the hospital? It may be that the US military brought the epidemic to Wuhan. America needs to be transparent! The United States owes us an explanation!”

Because the following block quote paints the Obama administration in a negative light, there’s a fairly high chance it will never be reported by the MSM.
If you attack the Obama administration, you’re not only jabbing at Barack himself, but also the former vice president, Joe Biden, the man the left is counting on to succeed in November against Donald Trump.
The thing is, the truth needs to be out there for all to see.
From Fox News:
The Obama administration repeatedly sought to cut hundreds of millions of dollars in funding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), yearly budget requests show — seemingly undercutting former Vice President Joe Biden’s repeated attacks on the Trump White House for its pandemic preparedness.
And here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter…
On the eve of #Easter, let us remember the ones who lost their lives to COVID19. Please try to connect w/ family, friends & loved ones this year. Take care of yourselves, keep your spirits high. Enjoy #Easter knowing we are all in this together.

National data show the #coronavirus crisis is over. @realDonaldTrump and governors should declare cautious victory and get country back open now to try to MITIGATE the economic destruction from the shutdown. https://t.co/w6zhxisVc0

Let’s be clear about what’s going on:
Republicans are trying to replenish the Paycheck Protection Program before funds run out.
But Dems are holding the program hostage to their unrelated left-wing agenda.
RT to tell Dems to quit blocking relief for workers & small businesses.

Small business layoffs spiked 1,000% last month. 10% of the U.S. workforce is now jobless. This is no time for political games.
I hope Democrats stop blocking more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program very soon. American jobs depend on it. https://t.co/R1TGM8gc84
