The media gets offended when President Trump calls coronavirus the “Chinese virus”

In one of the speeches that President Trump gave last week, a reporter accused Trump of being a racist. They said that some people are calling him a racist regarding his comments to the virus as Chinese.

Trump quickly discarded the reporter, stating that they were uninformed. He said that the only reason why he called it a Chinese virus is because it came from China.

Does this make him a racist ? Calling a virus Chinese? A lot of news reports came out saying that he is a racist for calling it as such.

Was any president or leader called a racist on previous pandemics ? How about the Zika virus? What ever happened to the Black Death, or the Black Plague in history? Do we remember the term Spanish flu in the 20th century? Or the Asian Flu? Or the Swine flu? How about the Ebola pandemic?

If our president was racist, then I’m assuming that the same reporters that are classifying him as a racist refer to these pandemics as racist comments as well? Or are they contradicting themselves?
