Omar Accuses GOP Leader of Being “Racist” for Referring to “Chinese Coronavirus”

Rep. Ilhan Omar accused GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy of being “racist” for typing the Coronavirus to China and referring to the “Chinese coronavirus.”

Kevin McCarthy had tweeted:

Everything you need to know about the Chinese coronavirus can be found on one, regularly-updated website:

Ilhan Omar responded:

Viruses don’t have nationalities.

This is racist.

Rep. Carol Miller fired back at Omar, tweeting:

We often name viruses on their location of origin.

West Nile
Spanish Flu

That name says nothing about the people who live there.

According to the most recent statistics, the number of China cases or coronavirus where the virus is believed to have originated indeed dwarf other regions.
