Donald Trump Calls Coronavirus “Kung-Flu”

President Donald Trump got himself into more controversy as a political rally held by him is accused of racism. Notably, the President called the coronavirus as “Kung-Flu”, a pun on the popular Chinese martial art of Kung-Fu that is known worldwide.

His comments drew criticism from all quarters as he continues to associate the coronavirus more with China than with his own policy failures as the US Presidential elections approach quickly.

Trump also used the rally to further attack Joe Biden while also cleared his name of the growing US cases. Instead, he blamed it upon the high testing being done in the country. It was an all-out attack from every front.

Donald Trump started by attacking China. He singled out the country for the growing cases in the world.

“I can name – Kung flu. I can name 19 different versions of names. Many call it a virus, which it is. Many call it a flu. What difference. I think we have 19 or 20 versions of the name,” he said.

His second big rhetorical vitriol was about the testing numbers in the US.

“Here’s the bad part. When you do testing to that extent, you’re going to find more cases. So I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down.’ They test and they test,” he said.

He finally went on to call Joe Biden an agent of far-left forces.

“I don’t think he knows what he is anymore. But he’s controlled by the radical left.”

With all national polls showing Trump trailing behind Joe Biden, he has turned to his biggest weapon. Donald Trump is blatantly using rhetoric that might be considered out of place in a sane election. It seems that he has realized that a stable election is the last thing he wants at this juncture.
