Mr. President had tweeted on Mar 16th, 2020 and called the COVID-19 "Chinese virus".  You should apologize publically and retrieve this statement. 

1. People naming a virus on its origin - like Ebola virus originated from the Ebola river, or naming it on it is does - like HIV means Human immunodeficiency virus.  When Mr. President you calling COVID - 19 "Chinese virus" you are promoting racism and pointing towards a group of people.   Like no one should ever call the Ebola virus "African Virus" and no one should ever call Swine flu "American Virus".

2. At this time of the crisis as our country's president, you should unite not divide. Yet by calling the COVID-19 "Chinese Virus" you are essentially committing a racist statement not only to billions of Chinese worldwide but also towards the 4 million Chinese Americans in our own country/motherland.  

So please retrieve the statement of calling it "Chinese virus" and apologize.  If you want to get political gain by targeting China government or communist party then it is your freedom of speech but just don't be racist by pointing towards innocent Chinese people.

Thank you for the consideration
