The attacks on China are nothing new as the US President has often blamed China for failing to prevent a pandemic which has now ravaged the global economy. China’s foreign ministry has also regularly fired back with similar charges, saying the Donald Trump administration was looking to obscure the facts around the virus to deflect from its own shortcomings. Trump has also been careful to maintain that his relationship with Xi remains strong.
