US President Donald Trump told reporters that he believed China’s handling of the Corona virus was evidence that Beijing was ready to do everything in its power to defeat in his bid to win the presidency for a second term in the November elections.
Trump spoke in a sharp tone about China and said he was studying various options regarding the consequences that he should bear due to the virus and added that I could do a lot.
Trump has blamed China for the global pandemic, which has killed at least 60,000 people in the United States, plunged the US economy into a deep recession and jeopardized his hopes of winning a second four-year term.
The Republican president, who many accuse of not moving fast enough to prepare the United States to cope with the spread of the virus, said he believed China had to play a more prominent role in introducing the world to the Corona virus more quickly.
Trump was asked if he was considering resorting to imposing duties on China, so he did not want to go into details and said there are many things I can do. We are studying what happened.
“China is willing to do everything in its power to lose this race,” he said, adding that he believed Beijing wanted his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, to win the pressure he had imposed on China on trade and other issues.
He said that Chinese officials have always used public relations in an attempt to make it seem like an innocent party
In Beijing, the State Department said it was not interested in meddling in the US presidential election.
Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters in a daily briefing that the November 3 elections are an internal matter for the United States and that Beijing hopes the Americans will not try to drag it into it.
