On January 31, 2020, President Trump shut down travel between China and the U.S. as a way to help prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus in the United States. Democrat lawmakers and their allies in the media immediately accused the president of targeting Chinese Americans over his travel ban, accusing him of being xenophobic.
On February 24, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulled what turned out to be not such a smart publicity stunt that she intended to use to support their unfounded claims about President Trump targeting Chinese Americans with his China travel ban. Surrounded by Asian Americans, Pelosi made a trip to San Francisco’s Chinatown, as she pleaded for everyone to travel to there, promising everyone that it was perfectly safe. “It’s exciting to be here, especially at this time,” Nancy told her constituents.
Speaker Pelosi recently deleted the video she shared of her trip to Chinatown from her Twitter account. In the video, Pelosi can be heard pleading with everyone to come to Chinatown, “To everyone—You should come to Chinatown. Precautions have been taken by our city. We know that there is a concern about tourism—traveling throughout the world. But we think it’s very safe to be in Chinatown, and hope that others will come.”
When Twitter users discovered Nancy Pelosi deleted the video, they began to circulate copies of the video, reminding her that the “internet is forever.” President Trump also shared the video Pelosi allegedly deleted, blasting the “third-rate politician,” for deleting the video, and accusing her of being “responsible for many deaths,” after her reckless call for people to travel to Chinatown during the Wuhan virus pandemic,
Crazy Nancy Pelosi deleted this from her Twitter account. She wanted everyone to pack into Chinatown long after I closed the BORDER TO CHINA. Based on her statement, she is responsible for many deaths. She’s an incompetent, third-rate politician!
