Trump Refers To COVID-19 As 'China Virus' Again

Trump has once again referred to the COVID-19 virus as the "China virus," despite being told the phrase leads to increased attacks on the Asian American community.

"Starting to get VERY high marks in our handling of the Coronavirus (China Virus), especially when compared to other countries and areas of the world. Now the Vaccines (Plus) are coming, and fast!" he tweeted.

He also touted what he deems his own success at boosting the economy -- despite the fact that millions of Americans are out of work due to the administration's mishandling of the pandemic.

The president tweeted: "10.6 Million Jobs Created In Just 4 Months, A Record!!! 'Biggest and Fastest Financial Recovery In History. Next year will be the best ever, unless a Sleepy person, who wants to massively raise your taxes, gets in. I'm which case, CRASH!!!"

The last time Trump used the tern "China virus," it led to slew of attacks on Asian across the country.
