In fact, in addition to Wu Yanzu, Trump’s provocation was also opposed by other Chinese Americans and even Asian Americans.
Meng Zhaowen, a Chinese woman Congresswoman and vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said bluntly, “we are very angry with you.”. Meng accused trump of using racist rhetoric to distract people from his ineffective response to the epidemic. Others say that the president of the United States does not represent Asian Americans.

According to the business insider website, there is criticism that Trump’s comments on that day were racist.
At that time, Jiang Weijia asked trump, “Americans are losing their lives every day. We can see more cases every day. Why is testing a global competition for you?” Trump replied, “people are losing their lives all over the world. Maybe you should ask China this question, don’t ask me, ask China, OK?” Then Jiang Weijia continued to ask, perhaps because the question “to the point”, trump became angry, then left the scene angrily, curtly ended the press conference.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia has intensified since the outbreak of the epidemic in China, and some senior officials of Trump and his government have repeatedly tried to throw the pot that has not been able to cope with the domestic epidemic to China. In addition to the previous stigmatization of the new crown virus as “China virus”, under groundless circumstances, many American politicians, including U.S. Secretary of state Peng Peio, constantly claimed that the new crown “the source of the epidemic is in Wuhan, China”, accusing “China did not share information in time”.
In response, Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry, said at a regular press conference on May 11 that it was clear that pompeio was merely repeating lies. However, no matter how many times he repeats it, it will not change the nature of his lies, nor hinder the Chinese people’s continuous progress along the road of socialism with Chinese characteristics. “We advise American politicians to put aside this deceptive trick and leave a little face for themselves,” Zhao said.
