Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn has been called a 'lifetime bitch' by a top Chinese journalist after making racist comments.

The insult-lade exchange began on Twitter when Blackburn thanked President Donald Trump for blocking the import of cotton produced by China's Uighur ethnic minority's forced labor.

On Thursday, she tweeted: "Thank you @realdonaldtrump for banning cotton produced by forced Uyghur labor. The U.S. will not support companies that profit off of slave labor."

A few hours later, the Senator continued: "China has a 5,000-year history of cheating and stealing. Some things will never change..."

Chen Weihua, European Union Bureau Chief for the state-owned China Daily newspaper, formerly a Washington DC and New York Chief Correspondent, snapped back at Blackburn's tweet.

He firstly responded by simply saying, 'Bitch.'

Chen then continued by adding: "This is the most racist and ignorant US Senator I have seen. A lifetime bitch."

The journalist then tweeted: "Wonder why the US Congress would have approval rating as low as 9% (according to Gallup)? It is because people like lowlife Marsha Blackburn were there."Blackburn ended the Twitter spat by saying: "Chen, you're a puppet in Xi Jinping's delusional China dream for global domination.

"From Tiananmen Square to Uyghur genocide, Communist China is an expert at slaughtering populations. America will not bow down to sexist communist thugs."

Florida Senator Marco Rubio later retweeted Weihua's initial 'Bitch.' tweet and added: "Meet the #China Daily EU Bureau chief."

Chen later responded to Rubio and said: "Hi, Marco, this is an understatement. She is much worse than that."

US and Chinese relations have hit their lowest point in years over issues including trade, human rights, and COVID-19 as Trump's spy chief warned this week that China is the 'greatest threat' to the US.
