President Trump Face Backlash As He Calls Coronavirus “Chinese Virus”
Yesterday while addressing the issue of coronavirus, President Donald Trump referred to it as the Chinese virus.
This was termed as racist by many and for this, he has faced so many backlash.
“The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like Airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese Virus. We will be stronger than ever before!”
Find below some of the reactions below:
“Chinese virus.” The guy is willingly putting people at risk for hate crimes. He knows what he’s doing. https://t.co/cVoc7fQjGF

It’s not the CHINESE VIRUS you racist sack of dogshit; it’s THE TRUMP VIRUS. You were warned about this in 2017. What did you do? Disband the pandemic office in 2018; slash budgets for the CDC, NIH & HHS; turn down COVID-19 tests offered to us IN FEBRUARY.pic.twitter.com/DUR1Jl7CpU

So “Chinese Virus” is racist, but “New Delhi Metallo-beta-lactamase1 (NDM1) Superbug” is not. pic.twitter.com/TbD0gMQ30f

Calling it a “Chinese Virus” makes me incredibly sad. I’m a proud American (happen to be born in China), who is an American thru & thru. This global 🌎 virus knows no race, no creed, or ethnic origin. Let’s conquer #COVID19 together, not apart.🙏 https://t.co/Pzpvy3PAiD

As a last birthday present to me can we all agree to never call it the “Chinese Virus” ever again?

Global pandemics are usually named after the place, city or country it originated.. so the notion that Pres. Trump is ‘racist’ becoz he is calling it the Chinese virus is another example of the primitive nature of the minds of pple who subscribe to the SJW far left dogma pic.twitter.com/5lJxDQFHr0
