Warren Attacks Trump For Coronavirus Response, Censors “Chinese” In Reply

In a tweet criticising President Trump for his response to the coronavirus outbreak, Senator Elizabeth Warren censored out the word “Chinese” in “Chinese Virus.”

“Chinese” is a Naughty Word, According to Warren!

On Wednesday, President Trump signed the Defense Production Act, in order to increase the production of “health and medical resources needed to respond to the spread of COVID-19, including personal protective equipment and ventilators.” In a tweet, the President said that he had signed the DPA to “combat the Chinese Virus should we need to invoke it in a worst case scenario in the future.”

This did not satisfy Senator Warren, who said that the President should “stop dragging your feet & burying your head & start helping hospitals that are about to be slammed by this pandemic,” implying he should invoke it sooner rather than later.

However, rather than quote-tweeting the President, Warren had tweeted out a screenshot of his tweet, and for some reason, censored the word “Chinese” in “Chinese Virus.” Twitter noticed the decision of the failed presidential candidate rather quickly and criticised her for her censorship, with many calling her “insane” and arguing that she was “taking a cue from China” in her blurring out of the word.

Stand Firm Mr President!

Reporters from the mainstream media had previously attacked the President for his use of the phrase “Chinese Virus” when referring to the coronavirus, suggesting that he was whipping up racism against Chinese people for the phrase. CNN claimed that the phrase is “inaccurate and considered stigmatising.”

The President has repeatedly stood firm against these attacks.

“It’s not racist at all, no, not at all. It comes from China, that’s why. I want to be accurate,” Trump said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Trump noted that the Chinese government has been trying to imply the coronavirus was, in fact, created by the United States military, and tried to shift the blame from themselves.

“I have great love for all of the people from our country, but as you know China tried to say at one point … that it was caused by American soldiers. That can’t happen. It’s not gonna happen, not as long as I’m President. It comes from China,” he argued.

I’m glad the President is standing up for his use of language against the press and leftists like Warren, who are following the Chinese Communist Party line that the virus did not come from them. It has nothing to do with racism at all – the media and people like Warren know this, but they will continue to bash the President over the head with accusations of it for their own personal gain.
