Trump's European travel ban prompts scorn in China

Users of the Chinese internet called out the U.S. president for seemingly flip-flopping on the seriousness of the deadly outbreak, which the WHO has upgraded to a pandemic.

“Trump claimed he knows the coronavirus better [than anyone] and told people not to worry because it’s just flu,” wrote one user on China’s Twitter-like platform Weibo. “He should stick to his belief and stop being a wuss!”

“Trump said it is just flu, yet he bans traveling,” wrote another. “What is he afraid of? Where are the human rights and freedom he boasted of?”
