Trump sparks anger by calling coronavirus the ‘Chinese virus’ | World news | The Guardian

Yeah, I’m angry too. I’m mad that China intentionally allowed this to get so out of control that it is now a global pandemic. I’m mad at the idiot globalists who created the perfect storm for something like this with moronic open border policies that were kept in place when they knew the virus was already spreading in China. And I an angry at the ridiculous imbeciles bemoaning the designation of the virus by the seat of origin. That is how infections are almost always named you nincompoops. That’s why its called the Spanish Flu or Rocky Mountain spotted fever. So be angry. But direct your anger at the politicians and the bureaucracy and the globalist mentality that allowed this to spread so far and wide so fast. ​

Donald Trump has referred to the coronavirus as “the Chinese virus”, escalating a deepening US-China diplomatic spat over the outbreak. After giving an address on Monday warning of a possible recession, the US president posted on Twitter: “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!” China’s foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said Trump should take care of his own matters first. “Some US politicians have tried to stigmatise China … which China strongly condemns,” he said at a press briefing on Tuesday. “We urge the US to stop this despicable practice. We are very angry and strongly oppose it [the tweet].” The World Health Organization has advised against terms that link the virus to China or the city of Wuhan, where it was first detected, in order to avoid discrimination or stigmatisation.

Last week, outspoken official Zhao Lijian from China’s ministry of foreign affairs accused the US military of bringing the virus to Wuhan. The US summoned Chinese ambassador Cui Tiankai over the comment and issued a “stern” warning to Cui. On Monday, the US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, issued “strong US objections” in a phone call with top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi. According to Chinese state broadcaster CCTV, Yang also issued “strong objections” to attempts by the US to “slander and smear” China’s efforts in combatting the virus.
