‘Hold China accountable’: Donald Trump escalates Covid attack with UNGA address
US President Donald Trump escalated attack on China with his scathing address at UN General Assembly. Trump referred to Covid as ‘China virus’ while asking UN to hold the Asian nation ‘accountable’. Trump’s speech came weeks ahead of US elections in which he has painted rival Joe Biden as pro-China. “75 years after the end of World War II and the founding of the United Nations, we are once again engaged in a great global struggle. We have waged a fierce battle against the invisible enemy — the China virus — which has claimed countless lives in 188 countries. In the United States, we launched the most aggressive mobilization, since the Second World War. We rapidly produced a record supply of ventilators creating a surplus that allowed us to share them with friends and partners all around the globe. We pioneered lifesaving treatments, reducing our fatality rate 85 percent since April,” said Trump. Watch the full video for more details.
