To be clear, language like "Chinese virus" is racist, and it fuels racism in what is already a painful time for so many Americans.
It suggests that if you look Asian — even if you are Asian American — you are an "other" to be blamed. It is divisive and toxic.

The left going insane over this just shows how unserious they are when it comes to actually doing their jobs…
I am so sick of seeking the news on Coronavirus and constantly getting bombarded w/how it’s all Trump’s fault or what Trump is calling the damn virus. Can we focus on what needs to be done right now and play the blame/political game later? Good Lord.

If the media want Trump re-elected by massive numbers, they should keep asking him why he's mean to China after they unleashed coronavirus on an unsuspecting world.

To be clear, the network you work for called it the “Chinese coronavirus” in January and you didn’t say a word.
The corporate political media don’t care about the American public. They only care about destroying the media’s political enemies. https://t.co/EXjj20wRqE
