Liberal journalists have politicized their coverage of the Wuhan virus, which originated in China, accusing the president of being a racist, a xenophobe, and unprepared to handle the Wuhan virus and the global pandemic that it's caused. President Trump hit back at reporters on Thursday.
"It comes from China," Trump said during a White House briefing. "It's not racist at all."
Washington Post photographer Jabin Botsford photographed the president's notes during the Thursday morning briefing. The photograph shows the president, presumably, had used a sharpie to cross out the word "Corona" and replace it with the word "Chinese."

The mainstream media is doing its part to cover for the Chinese government. China is completely to blame for giving the world another deadly virus, and that virus is currently wreaking havoc all around the globe. The Chinese government launched a disinformation campaign to try and fool the world into believing the virus originated in the United States. But President Trump is correcting the record every chance he gets, despite the usual accusations of "racism" and "xenophobia" from the mainstream media. As OANN reporter Chanel Rion put it, does the media think the phrase "Chinese food" is also racist?
Texas Senator John Cornyn is also not afraid to correct the record, saying "China is to blame because the culture where people eat bats and snakes and dogs and things like that -- these viruses are transmitted from the animal to the people and that's why China has been the source of a lot of these viruses."
If America was creating viruses for which the world has no immunity because America refused to stop dumping toxic waste in the ocean, does anyone think these reporters would start denouncing anyone who dare called it "the American virus"? But it's supposedly a hate crime to point out that China keeps churning out deadly viruses that kill thousands of Americans year after year.
