ADMIN

Since when did viruses start having nationalities? Well, US President Donald Trump is back at it again and this time, it's racism, among a host of other things. 

While the whole world is figuring out how to put a stop to the deadly Coronavirus that has been declared as a global pandemic, President Trump just took the issue to the next level with his pedestrian comment, referring to it as the âChinese Virusâ.

In his recent tweet, he wrote, âThe 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!â

Trump, referring to the Coronavirus as âChinese Virusâ, has irked people on social media who are ridiculing him for his racist approach. 

People are schooling him and reminding him that itâs a human virus not an 'Asian' virus for that matter.

It's not a the "Chinese Virus" you fucking racist dickhead!

Its called the Coronavirus and its now as American as apple pie so stop racist comments.

Letâs remember. Coronavirus is not an Asian virus. Itâs a human virus. We must elongate the epidemic curve for slow rise, slow fall. We must release all medical stockpiles. We must limit public gatherings of any sort, of any kid. Sooner we do this, sooner we conquer this disease

There are no words to express my absolute hatred of this man. None.

The virus doesn't have a nationality

"Chinese Virus?!?"

Now you're adding racist hysteria to an already dire situation???

In times like this, we need a sane, steady hand at the wheel, and that ain't you.

So why don't you just STFU if you can't say anything useful?

However, there are also people who are agreeing with Trump for calling it a 'Chinese Virus' as it originated from Wuhan in China. They even cited examples of the Spanish Flu and the Russian Flu.

They even went to say that the Chinese should be held accountable for all the current misery around the world.

Well it did originated from china, no one called "racism" for the Spanish Flu.

It started in China. Hence the name Chinese virus. Imagine thinking thatâs racist.

Youâre right, it is 100% the Chinese Virus and we need to hold them accountable for hiding it from the world for months.

Thank you THE PRESIDENT for calling a spades a spades "Chinese Virus" #ChineseVirus was designed to eliminate all non Chinese, we need a global probe in this

A Chinese Twitter user agreed that Trump is not being a racist and wrote, âIâm a Chinese. We all know that the virus is from Wuhan. Donald Trump didnât say anything wrong. We also called it a Wuhan Virus or Chinese Virus. It is not racism #WuhanCoronavirus #ChineseCoronavirus.â

Clearly, people on social media have different opinions on Trump calling it a 'Chinese Virus'.

But, I am wondering if we can actually focus on eradicating this virus and making an antidote rather than giving this whole thing a political tinge.

Whatâs your take on the same? Let us know in the comments section below.
