China Praises Hillary For Attacking Trump's 'Racist' 'Chinese Virus' Narrative
Communist nation backs failed presidential candidate with fresh propaganda
Lin Songtian, the Chinese ambassador to South Africa, tweeted:
"It is true. Justice always speak loudly."
He then posted a tweet from Clinton accusing the president of employing "racist rhetoric" against China.
"The president is turning to racist rhetoric to distract from his failures to take the coronavirus seriously early on, make tests widely available, and adequately prepare the country for a period of crisis," Clinton tweeted.
"Don't fall for it," she added.
Don't let your friends and family fall for it."
Lin has implied in previous tweets that the coronavirus might have originated in a place other than Wuhan, China.
"Some US politicians' blame game by calling it 'Chinese virus' is groundless and unacceptable," he tweeted.
"Scientists with justice in the world will show us the evidence of its true origin."
Trump defended calling the disease a “Chinese virus,” which originated in Wuhan, China.
“I have to call it where it came from, it did come from China, so I think it’s a very accurate term,” he said during a press conference.

Trump said he began using the term after China started to spew propaganda accusing the U.S. military of spreading the virus.
Earlier his month, the spokesman for communist China’s Foreign Ministry, Zhao Lijian, suggested the coronavirus 'might' have been brought to China by members of the U.S military.T
The baseless claims made by Zhao Lijian seemingly disregards the fact that the virus originated in China.
Lijian falsely claimed on Twitter:
“When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”
