Trump Tweeted ‘Chinese Virus’ To Denote The Rapidly Spreading Novel Coronavirus

The Centers for Disease Control has announced alarming indications towards the rapid spreading Coronavirus and ordered all the congregating places to shut up. CDC has alerted the citizens about the novel coronavirus by closing the various locations where the issues are more significant by saying that it may condemn the residents. 


On Monday night, President Donald Trump backlashes his anger against the virus by tweeting the term “Chinese Virus.” 


On the same day, Monday afternoon, the President addressed the country by saying that the nation may be heading towards recession and advised to maintain the social distance, later in the night he tweeted the phrase with confidence and support for the various economic sectors while giving an offensive remark to his tweet.


President tweeted, “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!”


While many institutions and people have criticized the tweet of Donald Trump, for instance, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the phrase sounds racist, and it is inappropriate for the leader to associate such disease and China together. It may increase the distances between nations and hamper the harmony during such conditions. 


The tweet has also received massive counterblasts from the various social media activates, as Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted back that this is inaccurate blame and may put the many Asian Americans in the situation of danger. 


The President has also mentioned the COVID-19 by saying “foreign virus” in his previous talk. Moreover, Trump has also retweeted the supporters of the term ‘Chinese Virus.’ 


This newest tweet from the President had come after when the Director of the CDC agreed for the House hearing as the statement was totally wrong and inapt to say for the labels “Chinese CoronavirusCoronavirus because the virus has now spread to other countries around the world. In the U.S., there were about 3500 positive COVID-19 infected cases on Monday night as per the media reports. 


De Blasio is going to hold the media roundtable meeting on Wednesday so that they can work against the rise of discrimination towards the Asian communities living in New York. 


De Blasio also added that “Right now, we’ve seen particularly troubling instances of discrimination directed at Asian communities, particularly in Chinese communities. The tweet from the President is completely unacceptable.”
