Mississippi governor blames Chinese government for unleashing COVID-19

Gov.

Tate Reeves explains why he's calling COVID-19 the "China Virus" because he says it escaped from a lab in China.

Well, I've said it multiple times, andand what I would say is, um I don'tcondone anyone, um, from, um, any AsianAmericans or otherwise, um, or anyonefrom the People's Republic of China whohappened to live in the United States.I don't condone anyone, um, bullyingthem.

I don't I don't condone maskbullying either.

Ah, I think those whochoose not to wear it not to wear amask should not be bullied by theirfriends.

I don't think we should makefun of them.

I think we shouldencourage those to wear a mask.

Um,it's certainly a mandate in our state.Um, but look, the reality is that hadthis virus not escaped from, however,it occurred from the lab in China, Um,I don't know that we'd be have havingthe kind of conversations that we'rehaving all day every day on, And that'sjust the fact.

And the the reality is,um, the people who are from China whoare in America are not our enemies.

Thepeople of China are not our enemies,but there is no question that theCommunist Party of China certainly isno friend or ally to the United Statesof America.

And that's just a fact.

AndI believe it.

And so, um, I'm gonnacontinue to harp on that if and when itis necessarytheme.
