Entrepreneur and author of “Woke, Inc” Vivek Ramaswamy claimed China is using “woke” politics to manipulate Americans during a Wednesday appearance on “Fox and Friends.”
China has positioned itself as “uniquely off-limits” for identification as the origin country for the novel coronavirus despite the country clearly being so, Ramaswamy argued.
“The Zika virus, the Marburg virus, and Ebola, were all named after the places of origin. In fact, MERS stands for the Middle Eastern respiratory virus. That’s an older coronavirus,” Ramaswamy told “Fox & Friends.” Ramaswamy continued, noting other COVID-19 strains — such as the U.K. variant, Brazilian variant and South African variant — which refer to their place of origin.
