: Just finished a very good conversation with President Xi of China. Discussed in great detail the CoronaVirus that is ravaging large parts of our Planet. China has been through much & has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect
And @POTUS leaves the podium, @VP takes the lectern
"I don't know," replies @POTUS when asked what he's doing to combat hate crimes against Asian-Americans. "Asian-Americans in our country are doing fantastically well."
"As soon as we open, that doesn't mean we're going to stop with the (social distancing) guidelines," @POTUS responds to @FrancoOrdonez in the radio pool seat
"In my opinion" the mortality rate of COVID19 is "way, way down," says @POTUS
"It's his call" and they'll talk about whatever President Xi wants to discuss, says @POTUS
"He never asked me to calm it down," replies @POTUS about whether President Xi asked him to stop calling COVID19 "the Chinese virus."
"I'll have a call with President Xi of China" tonight, confirms @POTUS, adding the coronavirus "came from China" and that country took advantage of the US until he came to the @WhiteHouse
As many as 10% or 11% of US restaurants might go out of business, says @POTUS. "They'll come back. It might not be the same restaurant."
"You don't know what the numbers are in China," replies @POTUS when @steveholland1 asks about US surpassing China for the most COVID19 cases in the world. He adds he'll likely be speaking to President Xi tonight
"I'll find out about that," replies @POTUS when asked by @steveholland1 about why the need to send US troops to the border with Canada. "I guess it's equal justice."
