Of all the more important questions to ask, this reporter picked one that focused on something that many would say is not even close to being important. As the world deals with the coronavirus, this reporter asked President Trump about calling it the "Chinese Virus" and if it created a stigma.

Trump shut down the reporter by saying, no. He followed it up by saying that anyone suggesting our military gave it to them, that creates a stigma.

For quite some time, the mainstream media has used terms like "wuhan virus" and "Chinese coronavirus" - and many similar variations. It was only recently that the media decided it was considered inappropriate or even "racist" - despite the media being the people who said it and broadcasted it to millions.
