Trump Praises His Failed Response to the Coronavirus, Blames Chinese

President Donald Trump praised his failed response to the coronavirus crisis, and tried to blame the Chinese in a racist effort to attach nationalism to the disease on Twitter.

CNN notes how Trump failed repeatedly to take the coronavirus seriously and claimed to have it under “tremendous control”:

From January until last week, Trump consistently minimized the risk the coronavirus posed to the country. He claimed to have the virus under “control,” that the number of US cases would go “down, not up,” that the virus might “disappear” through a “miracle” or something of the sort, that the virus might well vanish by April with the warmer weather, that the media and Democrats were overhyping the situation, and that “this is their new hoax,” leaving it unclear whether he was calling the virus itself a hoax.
