The State Department summoned Chinese Ambassador to the U.S. Cui Tiankai for a meeting Friday morning as the country's foreign ministry spokesperson continues to pump out false information and propaganda about the Wuhan coronavirus to the masses. 

Lijian Zhao has been posting blatantly untrue and easily disposable claims on his Twitter feed that the United States is responsible for the Wuhan coronavirus, rather than the Chinese communist party. 

The coronavirus outbreak happened in Wuhan, which is why it's been called "Wuhan pneumonia" by Mandarin Chinese speakers for months. The Chinese communist party covered up the facts about the disease and arrested doctors who spoke out about its rapid spread. 

Making matters worse, the Chinese government has censored factual information about the virus to its 1.3 billion person population, leading to its status as a global pandemic.
