Marco Rubio is concerned.
The increase in violence against Asian-Americans is alarming, vile & un-American.

That would be this Marco Rubio:
No reason to believe the #coronavirus is “contained” in #China. The numbers they are releasing are fake. Their primary goal isn’t addressing the virus,it’s their global image. We have no idea what the true numbers are but they are without a doubt higher than what they admit to.

News that we’re number one in #CoronaVirus cases is a reminder of why recent measures are so necessary
But let’s keep it in perspective#China’s government lies & they imprisoned the population of an entire city by force
Keep focused on our fight against the virus
We will win pic.twitter.com/ApDoezc11m

#CoronaVirus could have been contained early on.
But the decision of #China’s Communist Party to actively prevent information about the virus from getting out early on not only cost an unknown number of people in China their lives,it allowed virus to spread throughout the world pic.twitter.com/1kFmSWFZWU

Virtually every American was either laid off or has family members & friends who have.
I know AN ENTIRE IMMEDIATE FAMILY (husband,wife,two adult children & their 2 spouses) all laid off in last 72 hours.
But some people want to argue over what name we should use for the virus

Rubio doesn't say "China virus" or "kung flu" himself. He's just used the pandemic as an excuse to bash China every chance he can. And, of course, he fully backed a president who says "China virus" regularly, most recently in an interview on Fox last night. Rubio's appearance on that March 20, 2020, Hannity broadcast was followed by a segment featuring Karl Rove, who said, "This idea that calling it the Wuhan virus or the China virus is somehow or another racist is just ridiculous." Appearing as Hannity's guest between Rubio and Rove was Nigel Farage, who said, "So, you know, let's be clear -- this is the fault of China."
And now there's an uptick in anti-Asian racism, and Rubio is shocked, shocked.
