During a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) bashed President Trump for blaming China for the coronavirus outbreak.

"Quit the inflammatory China-bashing," Kaine demanded. "Did this virus originate in China? Yes. But Mr. President, that does not excuse your weeks and weeks of tweeting, lies, and misinformation about the virus while the leaders of other nations were taking steps to make sure their populations could be safe."

While taking away all responsibility from China, Kaine added, "The fact that the virus originated in China does not excuse the massive missteps that have led to the United States being so far behind other nations in the world in the ability to provide testing, basic testing, to citizens, including citizens who have serious signs of illness."
