Democrats are furious over this.
According to CNS News, Sen. Lindsey Graham left Democrats when he was asked by CNN’s Manu Raju if it was okay for President Trump to refer to the coronavirus as a “Chinese virus,” to which Graham said yes because “it came from China.”
Raju said, “The president continues to call this the ‘Chinese virus.'”
Graham responded, “It is, it came from China.”
Raju asked, “You think it’s okay for him to say that?”
Graham replied, “Yeah, I do. Because China’s accusing American soldiers of causing this problem. So, yes, we’re going to fight back. I’m not blaming the Chinese government – it did come from China.”
He added, “They have openly suggested that it was American soldiers who created this problem. This problem came out of China and I do believe that the Chinese government suppressed information that would have helped the world.” You can read the full article here.
