Chinese authorities had to restrain the spread of coronavirus, but could not cope, the American president said.
US President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox Business that he was “very disappointed” in China. “I am very disappointed in China,” Trump said.
Commenting on the presenter’s words that the Chinese delegation didn’t say anything about the virus during the Chinese delegation’s visit to the US in January, Trump noted that COVID-19 “was not even a topic of discussion.”
“I made a great trade deal with China and the ink has not dried up on the document. Nobody understood anything then. But I am very disappointed in China,” he said, speaking from the signing of the first phase of the trade deal.
Trump reiterated that China had to stop the coronavirus on its territory.
“We have a lot of information and part of it is unfavorable. But the worst part is that regardless of whether the virus got from the laboratory or from bats, it still spread from China, and they had to stop it. They had to stop its source of distribution, “insists the head of the White House.
“I don’t know if they made a decision, but he got out of control,” Trump continued, responding to a replica of a journalist that allegedly in China they could consciously decide to allow the virus to spread abroad.
As you know, the United States is conducting a full-scale investigation on the origin and distribution of COVID. According to one version that appeared in the media, Washington does not exclude that the virus comes from a scientific laboratory in Wuhan.
In parallel, US intelligence reported that the virus “has no artificial origin and has not been genetically modified.”
