Trump Strikes Back, Says U.S. Media Outlets are “Siding with China”


For decades, we’ve called it the “Spanish flu” without any backlash.

But the moment President Trump refered to COVID-19 as the “Chinese virus,” which it is, the media criticism reached a new frenzy.

Why did the president decide to call it the Chinese virus?

Well, Chinese officials and state-sponsored media have been blaming the U.S., suggesting our soldiers somehow planted the virus in China to make them look bad…

For all intents and purposes, it was a soft-allegation of biological warfare.

By calling it the Chinese virus, President Trump is making it clear that we had nothing to do with the creation or spread of this virus.

However, the media predictably called the president “racist.”

Now, President Trump is fighting back and accusing the left-wing media of “siding with China.”

More details below:

Trump is 100 percent correct: it's not racist, it's the truth!

During the presser, Trump even coined a new term, saying that "It's more than fake news, it's corrupt news."

Media organizations have been criticizing Trump's every move, including his decision to shut down travel from China.

Of course, that decision has been praised by many, including Dr. Fauci.

According to The Hill, the president suggested that the media are actually helping the goals of the communist Chinese government:

President Trump on Thursday accused media outlets of "siding with China" and decried their coverage of the coronavirus pandemic in a remarkable exchange with a right-wing news organization.

"I think they do. They are siding with China. They are doing things that they shouldn't be doing. They're siding with many others. China's the least of it," Trump said during a White House briefing on the coronavirus in response to a question from One America News (OAN).

"So why they're doing this, you'll have to ask them," he added. "If we had an honest media in this country our country would be an even greater place."

The president spoke to reporters for roughly an hour during a briefing on the virus. The focus was intended to be on efforts to fast-track antiviral treatments and therapeutics for those suffering from the novel coronavirus.

But remarks about those efforts, as well as remedies for a slumping economy and the push to increase testing capacity, were overshadowed by Trump's exchange with OAN, which tends to be favorable to the president.

"Thank you very much," Trump said as he called on the outlet. "They treat me very nicely."

OAN's Chanel Rion then claimed that major media outlets who "work right here at the White House" are "consistently siding with foreign state propaganda, Islamic radicals and Latin gangs and cartels."

The Trump administration has moved quickly to minimize damage from the coronavirus.

Aside from the largest private-public partnership in history, the administration is also seeking the largest stimulus directly for American taxpayers.

It is no secret that COVID-19 originated and spread from Wuhan, China.

No one would claim otherwise unless they are intentionally attempting to mislead the public.

Not only was there the Spanish flu, but there was also the Asian flu outbreak between 1956-1958.

Other documented pandemics in history include the Plage of Justinian and the Antonine Plague.

It's not uncommon for pandemics to be named after a geographic location.

ABC News is just one of the many organizations that has documented the virus's well-known Chinese origins:

The novel coronavirus outbreak, which began in Wuhan, China, in December, has expanded to touch nearly every corner of the globe. At least 98,000 people around the world have been sickened and thousands have died.

The World Health Organization has declared the virus a global health emergency and rated COVID-19's global risk of spread and impact as "very high," the most serious designation the organization gives.

Here's a timeline of how the outbreak has unfolded so far:

Health authorities in China confirm that dozens of people in Wuhan, China, are being treated for pneumonia from an unknown source. Many of those sickened had visited a live animal market in Wuhan, but authorities say there is no evidence of the virus spreading from person to person.

Dec. 31, 2019: WHO says mysterious pneumonia sickening dozens in China

Health authorities in China confirm that dozens of people in Wuhan, China, are being treated for pneumonia from an unknown source. Many of those sickened had visited a live animal market in Wuhan, but authorities say there is no evidence of the virus spreading from person to person.

Jan. 11, 2020: China reports 1st novel coronavirus death

Chinese state media reports the first death from novel coronavirus, a 61-year-old man who had visited the live animal market in Wuhan.

Jan. 21, 2020: 1st confirmed case in the United States

A man in his 30s from Washington state, who traveled to Wuhan, is diagnosed with novel coronavirus. Japan, South Korea and Thailand also report their first cases one day prior.

One thing is certain: the democrats and their allies in the media will take advantage of any crisis to criticize president Trump.

However, what matters is how his leadership is benefiting the American people!
