As usual, President Trump is now backing down over something he has said. During a White House press conference on Wednesday to address the growing cases of COVID -19, President Trump continued to call the spreading disease as the “China virus.”

A few House Democrats of Asian-descent and now the country of China say that Trump’s descriptive labeling of the virus is “racist” or puts Asians living in the U.S. at risk.

"No, not at all," Trump said in response to a reporter, "I think they probably would agree with it, 100 percent. It comes from China."

Trump doubled down on the term.

"I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously," Trump Trump referred to COVID-19 as the “China virus.”
