Trump sued for calling Covid-19 'China virus'

Washington, May 24 (TIWN) Former US President Donald Trump has been sued by a Chinese-American civil rights group for calling Covid-19 the "China virus".

The complaint, filed in a federal court in New York on Thursday by the Chinese Americans Civil Rights Coalition (CACRC), alleged that Trump's use of that phrase and other similar racist slurs is baseless, since the origin of the coronavirus is not yet determined, and that the former President's conduct harmed the community, reports Xinhua news agency. 

Trump's "extreme and outrageous conduct was carried out throughout the pandemic with reckless disregard of whether such conduct would cause Chinese Americans to suffer emotional distress", stated the suit.
