US President Donald Trump does not rule out a complete cessation of relations with China, Fox Business writes on Thursday, May 14.
“There is a lot to be done. For example, you can completely end the relationship,” he said.
The head of the White House believes that such a move would save his country $ 500 billion.
Trump also said that he does not want to talk with Chinese President Xi Jinping in the current situation.
“I have a very good relationship (with him – Ed.), But right now I don’t want to talk with him,” the American president said.
Trump also noted that although Washington asked Beijing to study the problem of the coronavirus COVID-19, it was refused, and the Chinese authorities did not want to accept the help of the United States on this issue.
“And I guessed that everything was ok because they should know what they are doing. So it was either stupidity, incompetence, or intent,” the president said.
Earlier, the head of the White House announced his readiness to consider imposing sanctions against China in the event that this country does not cooperate in the investigation of the reasons for the spread of coronavirus.
“I will be ready to consider this,” he said, referring to the bill prepared by Republican Senator Lindsay Graham.
Recall, China also planned anti-American sanctions due to COVID charges.
