U.S President Donald Trump described the coronavirus as the “Chinese virus” on Twitter on Tuesday, triggering his critics.

The president used the term while addressing critical comments from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“Some are being hit hard by the Chinese Virus, some are being hit practically not at all,” Trump wrote. “New York is a very big ‘hotspot,’ West Virginia has, thus far, zero cases.”

Despite the virus originating in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the capital of Hubei province, the president’s critics have angrily accused him of being racist for using the term “Chinese virus.”

Trump also referred to the “Chinese virus” on Monday night, vowing to keep the airlines from going under as a result of dramatically reduced travel.

“The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries, like Airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese Virus,” he wrote. “We will be stronger than ever before!”

Chinese Communist Party propaganda has disparaged the term as “racist” and “reckless.”
