The U.S. president said this in an interview with Fox News channel, which aired on Sunday.
Trump was asked how he would pursue policies toward China if he won the election. “Basically, you’re asking if we’re going to be disconnected,” Trump said. “This is a very interesting question. Because so far we get nothing from China. We’re just losing money,” Trump said. “We’re losing hundreds of billions of dollars without getting anything from China,” he said.
“If they don’t behave with us properly, I would definitely think I would definitely do it,” Trump added.
The confrontation between Beijing and Washington has intensified in the face of the pandemic. Trump has repeatedly said he believes China is responsible for the outbreak. Washington accuses Beijing of withholding information about the origin of the virus and the extent of the spread of the infection.
