US President Donald Trump has made one of the strongest statements regarding China in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, Fox Business writes.
“There are many things we could do,” Trump said in an interview with FOX Business. “We could completely break off our relationship.”
The Trump administration is considering ways to possibly punish or receive financial compensation from China for the fact that the Chinese side, according to Washington, is hiding all information about the virus.
The head of the US White House in an interview raised the issue of ending relations between the countries.
According to Trump, with the complete termination of the relationship, it will be possible to save $ 500 billion.
Regarding China’s response to inquiries about the spread of coronavirus from the United States, Trump said in an interview: “We asked for it, but they said no. They didn’t want any help from us. And I thought that was all right because they they should know what they are doing. So it was either stupidity, incompetence, or premeditation. “
Trump and his administration used different tactics to demonstrate discontent with China’s actions.
US President Donald Trump banned the main federal government pension fund from investing in Chinese companies, which, according to his administration, pose a threat to the country’s national security.
The White House cited a “risk of future sanctions” due to a pandemic.
