The US President Donald Trump has defended the use of the term ‘China Virus’ for coronavirus to blame China for the origin of this deadly virus. He used the same term for the second straight day and justified it in his own words. Donald Trump received criticism for using the term ‘China Virus’ and many experts called it an inaccurate explanation for defining coronavirus.

However, Donald Trump clarified that he is using the term because China tried to blame the US Army for the spread of the deadly virus. Further, he added that it is not stigmatizing or inaccurate to use it. The US President said that what was stigmatizing was the blame that China imposed on the US soldiers for spreading coronavirus in Wuhan.

A Few days ago, a group of social media channels and some Chinese officials blamed the US Army for spreading the deadly virus when it came to China in the month of October. The first few cases of Coronavirus were noticed in Wuhan and the pictures of lockdown shocked the world.

“Viruses know no borders and they don’t care about your ethnicity or the color of your skin or how much money you have in the bank,” said Dr. Mike Ryan, executive director of the World Health Organization health emergency program. “It’s really important that we be careful in the language we use.” During a White House press briefing Donald Trump said, “I didn’t appreciate the fact that China was saying that our military gave it to them. Our military did not give it to anybody.”

Citizens are calling it an act of white male supremacy, and are demanding justice for George Floyd. The police officers were restraining Floyd for some reason, but video footage of the incident shows a police officer leaning on the neck of Floyd as he asks for mercy and gasps for breath.

The four policemen have since been suspended from duty, and the FBI is doing a Federal civil rights probe. There have been protests across the country, for the cause of Black Rights. George Floyd’s death has sparked riots across the country.

Recently, there was a protest in Minnesota that went out of hand. And President Trump did not lose the time to tweet about it. In the tweet, he called the protestors thugs. He also warned that, as soon as “the looting begins, the shooting begins.”

This tweet did not sit well with Twitter because it violated the terms and conditions of Twitter. It promoted the glorification of violence. That’s why the tweet was flagged, and a notice was placed on it.

Later, the White House Tweeter handle, reposted the tweet from Trump’s account. The war between Twitter and Trump seems to be growing tense. President Trump is calling out Twitter and wants to revoke the 230.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects the authenticity of the platform. Trump and his supporters want to amend the section and revoke the 230. As the situation gets out of hand, it seems to be seen who will win the Twitter war.
