Elizabeth Warren Blurs Out ‘Chinese Virus’ From Trump’s Tweet on Coronavirus

Democrat makes point by censoring President’s tweet

Failed presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren blurred out the word ‘Chinese’ from President Donald Trump’s tweeting in which he called coronavirus the ‘Chinese Virus.’

Trump tweeted on Wednesday, he “only signed the Defense Production Act to combat the Chinese Virus should we need to invoke it in a worst-case scenario in the future.”

Warren responded:

“President Trump, are your eyes stitched shut? Hospitals need test kits, ventilators, & other medical supplies.”

“That’s why the DPA exists. Stop dragging your feet & burying your head & start helping hospitals that are about to be slammed by this pandemic.”

But rather than retweeting Trump’s comment, the Massachusetts Democrat instead shared a screenshot of the president’s message with the word “Chinese” blurred out.

Trump insisted, calling the coronavirus the ‘Chinese virus’ is “not racist at all.”

“It comes from China; that’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

Hillary Clinton also accused Trump of employing “racist rhetoric” for using the term “Chinese virus.”

Clinton wrote on Twitter:

“The president is turning to racist rhetoric to distract from his failures to take the coronavirus seriously early on, make tests widely available, and adequately prepare the country for a period of crisis.”

“Don’t fall for it. Don’t let your friends and family fall for it.”

Trump said his decision to use the term ‘Chinese virus’ was prompted after a spokesman for communist China’s Foreign Ministry, said the coronavirus ‘might’ have been brought to China by members of the U.S military.

The baseless claims made by Zhao Lijian seemed to be part of a propaganda campaign to flip the blame against the United States.

Lijian falsely claimed on Twitter:

“When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”

Lijian also posted links to other propaganda that also falsely claimed that the coronavirus originated in the U.S.
