Trump Calls Wuhan Coronavirus “Chinese Virus”

On March 18, President Trump insisted on calling the Wuhan Coronavirus “Chinese Virus” at a daily press briefing.

When pressed on “Why do you keep calling this the Chinese virus? There are reports of dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans in this country.”

Trump replied:

Because it comes from China… It’s not racist at all. No, not at all. It comes from China, that’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate.

A reporter dug into this question and said there were some, at least one, White House official who has used the term Kung Flu, referring to the fact that this virus started in China. She questioned President Trump whether he would condemn the fact and think that was wrong, the Kung Flu which puts Asian-Americans at risk that people might target them.

President Trump repeated:

No. No, No. I think they probably would agree with it 100%. It comes from China. There’s nothing not to agree.
