Liberals and progressives on Twitter accused Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of racism after he called out the Chinese Communist Party for mishandling previous disease outbreaks. This comes after Pompeo said there is increasing evidence the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is the result of the virus originating from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

"China has a history of infecting the world and they have a history of running substandard laboratories. These are not the first times that we’ve had a world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab," Pompeo tweeted on Sunday.

In response, people said Pompeo was putting all Asians in danger by using bigoted language.  

As Townhall previously reported, the State Department confirmed to the House Oversight and Reform Committee in April that the state media in China, Russia, and Iran are working together to try and blame the United States for the pandemic that started in the Chinese city of Wuhan.
