You won’t believe what he told them!
Today on “Fox & Friends,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) demanded that the Chinese government shut down wet markets that offer a large selection exotic animals to prevent dangers such as COVID-19/coronavirus from happening again.
According to Breitbart, “I’m going to write a letter to the World Health Organization and to the Chinese ambassador asking them to close the Chinese wet markets,” Graham stated. “These are open-air markets where they sell monkey. They sell bat. We think we — this whole thing started from a transmission from a bat to a human. About the last three or four pandemics have come from the Chinese wet markets. I don’t think this came from a Chinese military lab, but these wet markets are gross, they’re just absolutely disgusting, selling exotic animals that transmit viruses from animals to human beings. Those things need to shut down.”
“I’m going to write a letter to the Chinese ambassador saying, if you don’t shut those wet markets down, our trading relationship is going to change,” he added. “The source of this virus is the Chinese wet markets. But when you look — have doctors who come on and ask them, how many diseases have come from China through these wet markets where you intermingle all kinds of exotic animals, it’s just really a gross display of how you prepare food, that needs to stop. What can China do to help the world? Shut those markets down.” You can watch a clip of Graham’s comments here.
