Washington Post White House photographer Jabin Botsford captured an incredible photo showing that President Donald Trump crossed out — with a sharpie marker — the word “Corona” and replaced with the word “Chinese” virus.
The images were captured during Trump’s coronavirus press conference held on Thursday. On Wednesday, Trump dismissed the idea that the terms “Chinese virus” or “Kung-Flu” referring to Covid-19 are racist while arguing the coronavirus originated from China.
