Conspiracy theory: It’s all a plot to make US President Donald Trump look bad
Some supporters of US President Donald Trump believe the Democratic Party conspired with China to engineer a pandemic to make him look bad. “I believe that because Russia didn’t work, and Ukraine didn’t work, and impeachment didn’t work,” stated commentator Josh Bernstein in an episode of the conservative podcast The NutriMedical Report, according to USA Today.
“They are so hell-bent on destroying this country [and] this president to gain back power that they probably worked with the Chinese government, and they devised this plan.” However, there is no evidence to support any such plot. Nor has Trump lost the support of those who supported him pre-pandemic.
