Trump, Washington, USATwitter loses its cool over Donald Trump's racist connotation for the deadly corona virus - OyeYeah News

The coronavirus toll has reached 256,798 cases around the world while the death toll has risen to 10,500. The pandemic is growing with every passing minute but the US President isn’t really bothered about the gravity of the situation, because, for him, the coronavirus is racist.

After failing more than once to address the issue, the 45th US President, took to Twitter to tweet something that came across as entirely racist in a time that could do without such.

Addressing the Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo, Trump tweeted, “Cuomo wants ‘all states to be treated the same.’ But all states aren’t the same. Some are being hit hard by the Chinese Virus, some are being hit practically not at all.”

Twitter lost its cool immediately and most of them called out Donald Trump right away;

This isn’t the first time that Donald Trump referred to coronavirus as the ‘Chinese Virus’ on a public platform. Last week,  he addressed a press conference where he defended his racist remarks, saying, “Well China was putting out information, which was false, that our military gave this to them. That was false. Rather than having an argument, I said I have to call it where it came from. It did come from China.”
