Former Secretary of State and two time failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (D) just got nasty and in that way exposed herself as un-American.
She scandalously accused President Trump of using “racist rhetoric” to talk about the China virus because Trump wants to “distract from his failures.”
“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,” Hillary said before adding, “Don’t fall for it. Don’t let your friends and family fall for it.”
This is a nasty cheap shot even for a Clinton and reminds us all that if Hillary was POTUS Wall Street and big corporations would make a fortune off this virus while we would get nothing.
Thankfully, we put Trump in charge and he is putting the American worker first for a change.
From The Hill:
Democrats and some members of the media have slammed Trump and other Republicans for using the descriptors “Chinese” or “Wuhan” when referring to the virus in public statements and social media posts, saying it can stigmatize Chinese Americans and can lead to a rise in attacks agains them.
The virus, which is thought to have originated in China’s Wuhan province, has infected more than 200,000 people worldwide and thousands in the U.S.
Trump on Wednesday again defended calling the coronavirus a “Chinese virus” during a White House press conference.
“It’s not racist at all,” Trump said. “It comes from China, that’s why. I want to be accurate.”
Trump also defended the use of the term “Chinese virus” on Tuesday, saying that “China was putting out information, which was false, that our military gave this to them.”
“That was false,” he said. “And rather than having an argument, I said I have to call it where it came from. It did come from China so I think it’s a very accurate term.”
