President Trump has promised to literally make China pay for the damage they have caused to the United States from the Wuhan virus.
According to The Daily Wire:
President Donald Trump said on Monday during the White House Coronavirus Task Force news conference that the United States is going make China pay a “very substantial” price for the damage they have caused by lying and trying to cover-up the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan.
When asked about how he planned to hold China accountable for their actions, Trump said, “There are a lot of ways you can hold them accountable. We’re doing very serious investigations, as you probably know. We are not happy with China, we are not happy with that whole situation. Because we believe it could have been stopped at the source, it could have been stopped quickly and it wouldn’t have spread all over the world. We think that should have happened. So, we’ll let you know at the appropriate time. But we are doing serious investigations.”
The reporter’s question was false, Germany did not send a bill to China, a German newspaper wrote a £130bn invoice that they said Beijing owed Germany.
Regardless, Trump responded to the question by saying, “Well, we can do something much easier than that. We have ways of doing things a lot easier than that. But Germany’s looking at things and we’re looking at things. And we’re talking about a lot more money than Germany’s talking about. Yeah.”
Goldman Sachs has predicted that the GDP will fall around 3.8% due to the virus.
