Trump: ‘We Should All Declare With One Unified Voice That China Must Pay’
Trump vowed that China must pay “reparations” to nations around the world for the harm caused by the pandemic.
“We should all declare with one unified voice that China must pay. They must pay,” Trump told an adoring crowd.
The former president went on to say that other countries should team up with the United States to demand that China pays.
“All nations should work together to present China a bill for a minimum of $10 trillion to compensate for the damage,” Trump said, adding that nations’ canceling debt owed to China would be a good start as a “down payment.”
