Popular American OAP Rush Limbaugh claims coronavirus is being weaponized by China to make Trump look bad

Rush Limbaugh claims the coronavirus is being 'weaponized' by the Chinese government to damage the US economy and bring down Donald Trump but is 'no worse than the common cold'.

The conservative radio host said the deadly virus was created in a Chinese government laboratory and was being used to 'scare people in business' and crash the stock market.

Limbaugh, 69, said on his podcast show yesterday: 'It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump.

'I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus, the coronavirus is the common cold, folks.'

He added: 'I'm not trying to get you to let your guard down. Nobody wants to get any of this stuff. I mean, you never, I hate getting the common cold.

'You don't want to get the flu. It's miserable.

'But we're not talking about something here that's gonna wipe out your town or your city if it finds its way there.

'I'm telling you, the ChiComs are trying to weaponize this thing. The ChiComs obviously in their lab are doing something here with the coronavirus, and it got out.'

The coronavirus has now claimed more than 2,600 lives and the number of cases worldwide has soared above 80,000 with the World Health Organization (WHO) warning the world is on the brink of a 'pandemic.'

President Trump insisted yesterday that coronavirus is under control in the US as the White House sent lawmakers an urgent $2.5 billion plan to address the deadly worldwide outbreak.
