    There are currently around 250 reported cases of novel Covid-19 virus around the United States and some Democrats had earlier criticised the US president for failing to properly address the epidemic outbreak. His wife has also now become a target for many critics.

    US First Lady Melania Trump has been under fire after publishing several photos of herself in a white hard hat to update her followers about the ongoing construction of the Tennis Pavilion at the White House.

    The post was immediately pounced on by Trump’s haters, who pointed out that it was not the best time for the US to spend money on construction projects since the world is still struggling to deal with the outbreak of coronavirus along with some other major concerns.

    Some even dubbed the first lady the “real Marie Antoinette” of her time, while accusing Trump of being unaware of what was going on in the world.

    However, some social media users still supported Melania Trump's efforts and rushed to discuss who would be the main tennis player in the White House when the pavilion is built. 

    There are currently more than 100,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the world, a disease which originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of last year. With two deaths from the infection registered in the United States, President Trump has been criticised by Democrats for his handling of the outbreak due to his earlier cuts of funding for the Centers for Disease Control.
