News “ The president’s speech was delivered via video for the U.N. General assembly, reduced to a series of virtual speeches from world leaders because of the pandemic.
Trump pointedly referred to the coronavirus as the “China virus,” and listed many of China’s failures to contain the disease.
He also noted China’s hypocrisy after they condemned his travel ban to people from China while its government itself banned travel domestically and locked people in their homes.
“In the earliest days of the virus, China locked down travel domestically while allowing flights to leave China and infect the world,” Trump said.
Trump noted that the Chinese government and the World Health Organization (WHO) worked together to hide the true nature of the virus, falsely claiming that there was no evidence of human to human transmission and that people without symptoms would not spread the virus.
“The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions,” he said.”
