Trump keeps telling us that it is a "Chinese virus" instead of the correct medical term Covid 19. I wonder if a new virus were to be traced in, say, France would he call it "French virus" or in California would he call it "Californian virus" or in Israel would he call it "Jewish virus"?
My wife who is Chinese-American is afraid to show her face in public because of news reports of verbal and physical harassment directly towards Asians.
Nothing like throwing red meat to his rabid base.
Lemme show you something...
Calling COVID-19 The Chinese Virus Is Not Racist
Gregg Evans Yes, it is

Kenneth Romero Cu Gregg Evans no it's not
Gregg Evans And finding a dozen Asians (out of 4 billion) who don't think so hardly proves the point...
Kenneth Romero Cu Gregg Evans as I said before if you called it chink virus then we'll have a problem
Steve Ricketts Kenneth Romero Cu can just leave it as covid-19 virus. If you want to call it from origin of supposed start. China virus wuhan virus. It’s all wording but the general name convos-19 should suffice
Aaron Kraft Kenneth Romero Cu I love you bro...
Scott-Daisy Chambers Gregg Evans more than 4, my wife called it that before it was coined racist, talking to her family back home they use it and wuhan... but i guess since they aren’t yet truely Americans they don’t count.... but they are asian... dont worry i just call it germ warfare gone wrong... but i guess i might need a tin foil hat
Gregg Evans Its not that people say it, its that some people deliberately use it as an insult or to place blame for it on someone else. But go ahead, dude, whatever. When someone starts a sentence with "I'm not a racist but, ... " its been my experience that they're about to show that they're a racist, whether they know it or admit it or not.
Jason Perry Gregg Evans it did come from China. Trump called it the China virus because the CHINESE GOVERNMENT tried to cover it up at first and arrested the man that discovered it. They could've prevented 95% of this but their communist regime had to maintain control in the public eye. Later, they tried to blame this on U.S. troops. The China virus is referring to the Chinese government and rightfully so. It's not a shot on Asians.

Kenneth Romero Cu Jason Perry trump called it Chinese virus 3 months after the media and no one called it racist then
