ABC Report on Pres. Trump Covid19 Diagnosis Mirrors Chinese Government Words Almost Exactly

Headlines Politics U.S. World

An ABC News segment on President Trump’s Covid19 diagnosis mirrors almost exactly rhetoric pushed by the Chinese Communist Party.

The editor of the Global Times, a China-based newspaper largely seen as a mouthpiece for the Chinese government, criticized President Trump on Twitter after the President’s positive diagnosis was announced.

That tweet has since been deleted.

But ABC’s report on the president bears striking resemblance to the language used unofficially by the Chinese Communist Party. Judge for yourself – pay special attention to the phrases “gamble” and “downplay.”
