President Donald Trump said he would speak to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping by phone later on Thursday as the United States tried to overtake China as the country to the most reports of coronavirus. Trump spoke in a press conference at 9:00 p.m. (0100 GMT Friday) that he would be speaking to Xi.
As per a tracker operated by Johns Hopkins University, the United States has already outperformed virus hotspots China and Italy with 82,404 cases of infection.
Trump said he and Xi were going to address the global pandemic and maintained that they have a “very strong friendship,” but he touched on a tense row that broke out in both countries because of the disease’s blame.
Trump has made a point of constantly calling COVID-19 the “Chinese virus.”
This is for first blew up in Wuhan City, which has annoyed some in China. It also prompted allegations of race-baiting at home. Trump claims he’s fighting back. This is because an official in the Chinese foreign ministry has led a conspiracy theory. Theory about American soldiers carried the virus to China.
In addition to coronavirus and the enormous economic effects of widespread social distancing policies around the world. Trump and Xi are expected to discuss proposals to pursue a new trade deal. This is between the two largest economies in the world. Trump raised the possibility that Xi would “wait” until after November. This is for US presidential election “to see whether Trump gets killed.”
His likely Democratic rival Joe Biden will be Beijing’s. This only hope in the world when it comes to bargaining, according to Trump.
