Congress wants Biden to press Xi on Covid orgins

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

The congressional investigations into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic are casting a shadow over the face-to-face meeting between President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday.

Although Biden and Xi have many topics to discuss at this week’s Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in San Francisco, Republicans in the House and Senate believe that the exact origins of SARS-CoV-2 is important enough to be on the list.

Chairman of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic Brad Wenstrup (R-OH) told the Washington Examiner that the “devastation that the world has undergone” due to COVID-19 demands substantial answers.

“President Biden should press President Xi on why, if they were aware of COVID-19 or a bad virus … did they hide it from the rest of the world,” Wenstrup said.

Although Wenstrup doubts that Biden will broach the topic of COVID-19 origins to Xi on Wednesday, Wenstrup noted that the congressional pressure will likely weigh heavily on the shoulders of Chinese leaders.
