Pelosi called COVID-19 "trump virus"

The speaker of the U.S. house of representatives Nancy Pelosi in an interview with CNN has called the coronavirus, "virus of the trump."

Earlier, U.S. President Donald trump said that the situation with mers in the United States is likely to deteriorate: "first become worse before it gets better." Trump also urged all residents to wear masks when it is impossible to observe social distance.

"I think the President's comments today show that he acknowledged it made mistakes... Recognized that it's not cheating, it's a pandemic which has become worse before it gets better. Because of his inactivity. And, in fact, it's the trump virus. If he a few months ago said, let's wear masks, let's keep social distance...more people would follow his example. Instead of showing a bad example...," said Pelosi in an interview.

Trump previously called COVID-19 "kung flu" or "Chinese flu".
