Trump Doesn't Rule Out The Possibility Of Ending US Relations With China Due To The Pandemic
US President Donald Trump did not rule out the possibility of ending relations with China due to the coronavirus pandemic. He said this in an interview with Fox Business on Thursday.
"We can do a lot, we can stop the relationship altogether," he said. And if that happens, do you know what will happen? You can save $500 billion if you end all relationships. I have been talking about this for many years, and I have also spoken about other countries."
"China is not the only country that lives at our expense," he continued. We provided protection to NATO countries for almost nothing, and I was able to get these countries to pay hundreds of millions of dollars extra." "We provide the defense of Europe, and they use the advantages in the sphere of trade," he added. These are one-sided advantages, but the situation is now changing."
When asked what measures could be taken against Chinese companies listed on the new York exchange in order to ensure that they provide the same information as American companies, Trump said that "there is a problem here." "Let's assume that we take these measures," he continued. But what will they do? They will move the listing to London or Hong Kong."
