President Joe Biden used the widely unpopular term “Latinx” and insinuated that all Latinos in the United States are illegal immigrants, when the vast majority of Latinos in America, more than 60 million, are U.S. citizens.

“It’s awful hard as well to get Latinx vaccinated,” Biden said during a Thursday speech in Raleigh, North Carolina. “Why? They’re worried they’ll be vaccinated and deported.”

“It does not occur to Joe Biden that tens of millions of Latinos are American citizens,” tweeted former Trump 2020 campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh.

A study by the Pew Research Center found that only one-fourth of people living in the United States who trace their roots to Latin America and Spain have heard of the term “Latinx,” a “gender-inclusive” word for Hispanic and Latino. And only 3 percent use the term “Latinx,” a percentage “similar across all major demographic subgroups.” Many Latinos criticize the name for “ignor[ing] the Spanish language and its gendered form.”

“What is Latinx???” one Twitter user asked. “I would appreciate you stop calling us that. It’s offensive. I’m a #Latino and my wife is a #Latina. Somos #Latinos. Please get that straight!”

According to Pew, the only people who really use “Latinx” are “celebrities, politicians and grassroots organizations.” Additionally, “academic centers at community colleges, public universities and Ivy League universities” are jumping on the politically correct bandwagon and rebranding Latino programs with new “Latinx-focused” names, despite actual Latinos rejecting the term.

Many were quick to point out (yet again) that Biden is imposing “Latinx” on Latinos who do not use or like the term. “I can’t imagine a scenario where it’s ok to impose an unpopular label on minorities,” Texas media strategist Giancarlo Sopo wrote
