Donald Trump said U.S. will be taking strong action against China
Washington. Donald Trump said Wednesday that the U.S. will be taking strong action against China as he ordered investigations into Beijing after claiming they knew about the coronavirus threat earlier than let on and could have done more to stop the pandemic.
‘We’re coming up with a very distinct recommendation. But we’re not happy with it,’ Trump said of potential economic consequences against China.
‘There’s nothing positive about what happened in China having to do with this subject. Nothing positive at all,’ the president continued while speaking to reporters during an Oval Office meeting with Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat.
‘We’re lucky that we stopped it in January flowing into our country from China,’ Trump said, lauding his decision to shut down travel from China to the U.S. earlier this year – aside from allowing U.S. citizens to return home.
The president said the World Health Organization was acting like it worked for China, and said he would be issuing a ‘recommendation’ on how to deal with WHO and China.
