President Donald Trump said Monday from the White House: ‘Germany’s looking at things, and we’re looking at things, and we’re talking about a lot more money than Germany’s talking about’.
During a press conference at the White House on Monday, Trump made the threat to China after being asked whether he was considering seeking money from Beijing for its response to the pandemic.
The idea of seeking reparations from China came after a German newspaper published a mocked-up bill of a $160billion invoice for the impact shutdowns have had on the economy following the spread from Wuhan to Europe.
In light of reports that Trump owes tens of millions to the Bank of China, Sen. Tammy Duckworth is requesting an investigation into Trump's decision to facilitate the transportation of 17.8 tons of donated PPE and medical supplies to China in February. https://t.co/24vrzSJDm0
