Apt remove python not working

I’m following the docker series and one of the tasks was to install and uninstall python on Linux. Both commands work fine

apt update

apt install python

But trying to do
apt remove python.

I get a message saying "Note, selecting ‘python-is-python2’ instead of ‘python’ 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded’

And python stays installed
