The President of the United States Donald trump ignored early reports about the beginning of the epidemic of the coronavirus because of concerns about trade deal with China. About it reports “Interfax” referring to the former US presidential Advisor for national security John Bolton.
According to him, the President did not want to hear about something that could complicate the conclusion of an agreement with China. He also did not want to heed the warnings about the looming impact of a pandemic on the U.S. economy and his re-election. Bolton said that ignoring the problem of the President led to the fact that the state is unable to cope with the epidemic. He noted that the response at the Federal level, the threat has not been consistent.
Previously, the Federal Bureau of investigation (FBI), the U.S. acknowledged that it does not have sufficient information to draw any conclusions about the origin of the coronavirus. The Director of the FBI due to the fact that the pandemic began in China, said that no other country poses a greater threat to American values, economic security and democratic than China.
Washington, in turn, has repeatedly criticized China. In March, trump has accused China of untimely informing of the world community about the outbreak of coronavirus. According to him, it would be better if the authorities of other countries knew about this a few months earlier.
