Don Jr. Uses Coronavirus To Promote His Dad’s Xenophobic Policies And Gets Torched For It
Donald Trump Jr takes after his father. He has his dad’s worst qualities – which is just about all of them. And on Tuesday, he tried to take a page out of his dad’s book by claiming that having “secured borders” will stop the Coronavirus outbreak in the United States.
Trump Jr. tweeted saying:
“The coronavirus outbreak shows how important it is for us to keep our borders secure. It’s also why @realDonaldTrump is right to want a trade policy focused on increasing American manufacturing. He understands that it’s dangerous for our economy to be beholden to China!”

Of course, people took notice that Trump Jr. tried to link the Coronavirus to his father’s immigration policies – which have nothing to do with each other. Take a look below at how Twitter users reacted:
When was the last time he hugged you?

Ignorant fear-mongering against latino immigrants. Air travel will always exist, and viruses can develop anywhere.

Donald Trump wants Congress to give him $2.5 billion to fight the Coronavirus.
F**k that. F**k him. And f**k Jr. Let him take it from the money for his goddamn illegal border wall.

The virus came from China. Whom we don’t share a border with you eedjit. Your geography is as bad as Pops. Also there are no travel restrictions with China. 🤦♀️

Your dad cut funding for the CDC when we have a #coronavirus outbreak. That was really ignorant.

Ok Fredo. Keeping the borders secure will stop coronavirus outbreak. A higher wall might also help. 🤦🏽♂️
