Everyone is aware of the ongoing situation in America. Not only is the country under turmoil, but there are also undercurrents of protests aimed at ending racism, against the Trump administration. The situation escalated quickly when George Floyd, a black man, was killed by four white policemen.

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.

Calling COVID-19 “a plague from China”, the US president has said that the coronavirus pandemic should not have happened. And China must have taken necessary actions to control it within its territory.

In addition to this, Trump has said that the US had just signed a big trade deal with China and soon COVID-19 started spreading. Due to this, the relations between the US and China are going through the worst phase of all time. And there is no scope of improvement in the near future.

Donald Trump raised his voice against China during the “Spirit of America Showcase” in the Grand Foyer of the White House. Recently, the US president also decided to make July “Pledge to America’s Workers Month by signing a proclamation.

The US is the worst affected country in the world due to COVID-19 and different states in the country are witnessing a hike in the number of COVID-19 cases. Things are not settling well since the states have announced their reopening. Many public health experts have already issued a warning about the jump in the coronavirus cases that different US states could see in the future.

It is not for the first time that Trump has attacked China for the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world. He had also done it a couple of times in the past. And earlier, many Asian-American had reacted to his act of blaming China for COVID-19 without any solid proof.
