CHINA/CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION: “[Question from reporter: Are you concerned that China is covering up the full extent of coronavirus?] No. China is working very hard. Late last night, I had a very good talk with President Xi, and we talked about — mostly about the coronavirus. They’re working really hard, and I think they are doing a very professional job.

They’re in touch with World — the World — World Organization. CDC also. We’re working together. But World Health is working with them. CDC is working with them. I had a great conversation last night with President Xi. It’s a tough situation. I think they’re doing a very good job.”
