China has been “embarrassed” over the coronavirus, U.S. President Donald Trump said at a news conference on Saturday.
He said China may have knowingly misinformed the international community over the coronavirus, or might have made a mistake.
“The question was asked, ‘would you be angry at China?’
“The answer might very well be a very resounding yes, but it depends – was it a mistake that got out of control or was it done deliberately?,” Trump said.
“That’s a big difference between those two,” Trump added.
Trump has accused Beijing of covering up information on the virus that broke out in the city of Wuhan in late 2019.
Trump has ordered a halt in payments to the World Health Organisation, blaming it for the coronavirus deaths and being China-centric.
