At the North Carolina GOP Convention Dinner on Saturday, former President Donald Trump demanded that Communist China pay a minimum of $10 trillion in reparations to compensate for damages caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Fauci has, perhaps, never been more wrong than when he denied the virus and where it came from,” Trump said.

Although Trump applauded the U.S. for bouncing back from severe economic loss, he said Americans still need to hold China accountable.

“Nobody’s recovered like us because of what we’ve done, because we laid a great economic foundation, and because of what we’ve done with a vaccine and also what we’ve done with the distribution of the
