Donald Trump bashed China Wednesday morning for its ‘incompetence’ leading to worldwide deaths from the coronavirus pandemic – as the U.S. maintains the highest number of cases and deaths of any other country.
‘Some wacko in China just released a statement blaming everybody other than China for the Virus which has now killed hundreds of thousands of people,’ Trump tweeted, referencing an unidentified individual.
‘Please explain to this dope that it was the ‘incompetence of China’, and nothing else, that did this mass Worldwide killing!’ he continued.
Earlier on in the outbreak, Trump often referred to COVID-19 as the ‘Chinese virus,’ wanting to make it clear that he blames China for the outbreak.
The virus first appeared in December in the Chinese city of Wuhan, located in Central China’s Hubei province, and spread rapidly around the world.
