US President Donald Trump has been at loggerheads with the Chinese government ever since the novel coronavirus surfaced in the country and later spread to other parts of the world. Trump, it seems, is not willing to relent.
Trump’s use of the word “China Virus” has drawn sharp reactions not only from Beijing but US citizens as well, who have warned him against the impact of his words and the retaliatory actions that certain Chinese Americans may have to face as a result.
Taking to Twitter, the US president announced on Friday that the “vaccines are on their way” before taking a swipe at China.
“Europe and other parts of the World being hit hard by the China Virus – Germany, France, Spain and Italy, in particular. The vaccines are on their way!!!” he tweeted.
The US president has irked China by the use of the word “China Virus” for the coronavirus, which has killed more than 1.6mn people around the globe and infected a total of 75mn.
The infection originated in China, where it spread to almost all parts of the world. Most countries in the world, especially the European nations, are currently experiencing the second wave of the coronavirus.
