Donald Trump blames China’s ‘incompetence’ for ‘mass worldwide killing’ in early morning tweet

US President Donald Trump lashed out at China again on Wednesday over the coronavirus pandemic, blaming Beijing for “mass Worldwide killing”. The early morning tweet, which also referred to an unidentified “wacko in China”, was the latest heated rhetoric from the White House, where Trump is making attacks on Beijing a centrepiece of his November re-election bid.

“It was the ‘incompetence of China’, and nothing else, that did this mass Worldwide killing,” the president tweeted. The virus was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan last December and spread rapidly around the world, killing more than 323,000 people at the latest count, and triggering huge economic damage.
