US President Donald Trump once again promised to punish China for the coronavirus pandemic. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.
“The deception of China, its secrecy and attempts to cover up the problems under the carpet, allowed the virus to spread to 189 countries,” the American leader said. He added that China should be held fully accountable.
Trump also added that other viruses came out of China, but did not explain his statement.
Earlier, the head of the White House used the new term to describe the coronavirus pandemic and again offended China. At a pre-election meeting with his followers in Tulsa (Oklahoma), the head of the White House compared a new type of coronavirus to kung fu, coining it with a consonant name – kung flu (flu – English “flu”), thereby sending to Chinese martial art.
Beijing has repeatedly been sharply criticized in Washington. In March, Trump accused China of not informing the world community about the outbreak of coronavirus. According to him, it would be better if the authorities of other countries knew about this a few months earlier.
