 Instead of fighting each other, why do not Donald Trump and Xi Jinping prepare a joint strategy to fight against Coronavirus?

    Maybe because of the tariffs Trump has imposed over the past 20 months on some $370 billion worth of Chinese imports annually.

    Actions which have damaged China's economy.

    It has also led to 25% tariffs which American companies have to pay on things like oxygen concentrators and thermometers and disposable medical headgear. With 10% - 15% tariffs on a lot of protective clothing.

    Not forgetting Trump has shifted from praising Chinese President Xi Jinping for his prompt containment of the virus, to blaming the world’s second-largest economy for spreading the disease, which he now calls the “Chinese virus.”

    Although Trump has temporarily reduced the tarriffs on some of these goods.

    Tell me if you were China who would you put at the top of the list to sell all those medical supplies the world is crying out for, the USA or the rest of the world who did not impose tarriffs.

    Which countries would you be more likely to work with to make an international pandemic response.

    So far all Trump has done is tear up and ignore international treaties, why would any world leader believe any international agreement he made was worth the paper it was written on.

    Not China, not Trump, not all the power on Earth could stop the emergence of flu bugs. Flu bugs are part of life.

    What like the Chinese government, the CCP, not silencing their own doctors who were the first to detected it.

    Do you mean that kind of cooperation, be nice.

    Because China knows all about this disease, it’s origin and why it was released.

    Of course they won’t tell trump.

    Good to see apologists for China blaming trump and Boris and not the culprits, they never fail to deliver.

    I think these two and many politicians look to flex and outdo other countries.

    Trump and Boris have decided to play politics instead of protecting lives and use China as a scapegoat to mask their own incompetence

    That is exactly the approach that should be taken, maybe Trump has a level head in there somewhere?

    Can you imagine two egomaniacs working together. I don’t see it happening. 

    It would mean sharing information. That likely include China revealing how many people actually caught it and how many have died.
