VEGA: “Okay. Why do you keep calling this ‘the Chinese virus?’ There are reports of dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans in this country. Your own aide, Secretary Azar says he does not use this term. He says ethnicity does not cause the virus. Why do you keep using this? A lot of people think it’s racist.”
TRUMP: “Because it comes from China. It’s not racist at all, no, not at all. It comes from China, that’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate. John?”
VEGA: “Aren’t you concerned about the Chinese Americans in this country? Your aides behind you, are you comfortable with the term.”
TRUMP: “I have great love for all the people from our country. But as you know, China tried to say at one point — maybe they’ve stopped now — that it was caused by American soldiers. That can’t happen. It’s not going to happen. Not as long as I’m president. It comes from China.”
