Biden White House budget chief Shalanda Young would not say if the Biden Administration would stop paying for gain of function research at the Chinese Wuhan laboratory. For clarity, the phrase gain of function is a way of describing any area of medical research that changes a disease or organism in such a way that increases its transmissibility.
The Acting OMB Director refused to say that President Biden’s budget would NOT fund the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

This comes as more evidence is coming out that Chinese scientists manipulated coronavirus while increasing its potential for infecting humans. Dr. Fauci, the National Institutes of Health and a sub-agency at the Pentagon were recently said to be sending money for these very risky experiments. This is something Fauci had before denied he was knowledgeable of concerning the lab located in Wuhan China.
“And the money made available by this agency which Fauci leads, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, an amount of $600,000 was sent to the Wuhan Institute,” said Alan Jones, host of Australian Sky News. “This is a lab doing gain of function research that was creating even more dangerous viruses.”
House GOP members said the comments by Biden’s top budget leader shows his administration will keep giving taxpayer money to China’s biolab that evidence has more and more suggested might have had a pivotal role in the creation of COVID-19 and the pandemic that locked down the whole world.
What a complete mess.
Well, Dr. Fauci, why can’t you know what’s going on inside the “Wuhan lab” if you’re sending taxpayer money to it? For crying out loud, be aggressive and be accountable.
We know the Chinese government can’t be trusted.

This also comes at a time when the Biden administration is in Europe for his first visit since he took office.
One has to wonder if the topic of American funds going to fund the virus that has harmed most of the world economically and physically might be on the table for discussion during the leadup to the G-7 meeting. To say nothing of the discussions that might be had between the Democrat and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
