The G-7 leaders have thus far not been able to agree on a joint statement because of Pompeo’s insistence that the group should refer to the disease as the “Wuhan virus,” which other member states have rejected.

“The Chinese Communist Party poses a substantial threat to our health and way of life, as the Wuhan virus outbreak clearly has demonstrated,” Pompeo added.

President Trump and other GOP lawmakers referred to the novel coronavirus as the “Chinese virus,” despite critics noting that such rhetoric could be correlated with a rise in targeted violence against Asian Americans.

Public health officials, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization have advised against referring to the coronavirus by its city or country of origin.

    He’s going to do what he wants no matter who advises him … except perhaps one of his rich contributors.

    • Hello Nan. Yes, and the more harmful, the more hateful the better he likes it. That people like Pence and Pompeo go along with it shows just who they are also. Other countries are getting sick of the US and we will soon find they have all gone along without us. Hugs

      • Although it’s not a good thing in the long run, in the short term I DO like your prediction that other countries will go along without us. Better yet, they do so while turning their back on Trump and publicly denouncing him and his actions. Ohhhh, wouldn’t that be sweet?

        • Hello Nan. I am not sure any but the most secure countries will openly slam tRump or denounce him. He is withholding aid to states in the US who don’t kiss his rump with enough praise think of what he would do to other countries? Those governments would be screwed on everything including intel and banking, world commerce, just anything tRump could think of to harm them. Hugs

          • You’re probably right … and I have no doubts he’d be able to think of MANY, MANY things he could to do harm them. As we’ve seen (especially during this current crisis), it’s an inbred part of his nature to knock down and walk over anyone or anything that gets in his way.

            • Hello Nan. The cruel bully is the feature for tRump, not the bug. Hugs
