Former President Barack Obama reportedly accused President Donald Trump of spreading “anti-Asian” sentiment with his comments about the coronavirus.
Obama ripped his successor for using the terms “China virus” and “kung flu” to describe the coronavirus, according to a New York Times article published Sunday. Obama reportedly made the comments during a private, virtual fundraiser for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
“I don’t want a country in which the president of the United States is actively trying to promote anti-Asian sentiment and thinks it’s funny. I don’t want that. That still shocks and pisses me off,” the Obama reportedly said.
