President Trump has to be getting sick and tired of fielding questions during now-daily coronavirus updates about his use of the term "China virus" and the liberal media's suggestions that the term is "racist."
The president has explained several times that the virus did come from China, therefore calling it a 'China virus' is technically correct and has nothing to do with ethnicity.
But this ridiculous accusation is just the latest iteration of the media's attempt to paint Trump's entire coronavirus response as "racist."
Several weeks ago after the president immediately imposed a travel ban on China when it became clear Beijing had not been up front about the spread of coronavirus, the media called that ban "racist."
And on Thursday, during the latest coronavirus update from the White House, the president reminded an NBC reporter of that fact, as well as the rest of her colleagues in the room after she suggested the administration was not "prepared" for the virus.
"We were very prepared. And the only thing we weren’t prepared for was the media. The media has not treated it fairly. I’ll tell you how prepared I was. I called for a ban from people coming in from China long before anybody thought it was… In fact it was your network. I believe they called me a racist because I did that," he said.
