“Like any country where a virus first shows up, they can look back and see where they missed some things,” Gates said of the Chinese Communist Party. “I think there’s a lot of incorrect and unfair things said.”

They then censored and reprimanded Chinese whistleblowers who tried to alert the rest of the world, and expelled all U.S. journalists from the country when they began asking questions.

Gates’s defense of China, however, has been very popular among one group of people: Chinese state propagandists. Chen Weihua, China Daily’s European Union bureau chief, shared a clip of Gates’s CNN interview on Twitter and praised Gates for blasting “Trump’s blame game.”
