Hu Xijin: President trump himself paid a price for the United States to dilute the epidemic situation
Unfortunately, this news reflects the severity of the new outbreak in the United States. President trump has been trying to play down the impact and impact of the epidemic on the United States, let voters ignore the harm of the epidemic, and he himself has long refused to wear masks and inadequate protection. Politicians may have no choice but to do so under the American system, but its negative impact on American society is obvious. Now president trump himself and the first family have also paid a price, which can not be understood as the performance of sharing weal and woe between the president and the people. The United States should find a way to make everyone safer.
The US presidential election has entered the sprint stage, which should be a negative factor for the election of President trump.
In any case, I hope novel coronavirus pneumonia will be safe for president Trump and his wife to survive this difficult time.
