President Donald Trump on Friday’s broadcast of Rush Limbaugh‘s show, when talking about Iran, had some harsh words for the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, telling them not to “f— around with us.”

“And [Iran]’s been put on notice. If you f— around with us, if you do something bad to us,” the president said, “we are gonna do things to you that have never been done before.”

Late last month, the Trump administration unilaterally sanctioned Iran’s Revolutionary Court System on human rights’ grounds for torturing and executing a wrestler who had participated in a protest, as well as other human rights abuses.

President Trump was on Limbaugh’s radio show holding a virtual campaign rally for his supporters when he made the comments. After contracting the Coronavirus late last week, Trump and his campaign said that they would be conducting virtual campaign events and rallies.

As a result of the president’s positive diagnosis, the Commission on Presidential Debates decided to make the second presidential debate a virtual one, which Trump rejected and subsequently backed out of. Because of this, the Trump and Biden campaigns have agreed to push this town hall-style debate to October 22 instead of next week so that it can be in person. The third debate, however, is up in the air.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
