Trump Refutes Anti-Russia, Anti-China Lies

April 3, 2020 (EIRNS)—President Trump again rejected questions from the media trying to target Russia and China. He called Russia’s donation of a large aircraft full of high quality medical equipment a “very nice gesture.” To a question implying this was a propaganda victory for Russia, Trump replied, “I’m not concerned about Russian propaganda. It may save a lot of lives.”

In the Wednesday press briefing, a reporter asked about the Bloomberg article claiming that a U.S. intelligence community report accuses China of grossly under-reporting the number of COVID deaths in China. Showing his normal disdain for U.S. intelligence reports (if such a report even exists), Trump responded: “I’m not an accountant for China,” adding that “we have not received” any such intelligence reports. “We really don’t know. How do we know whether they under-reported or reported, however they report? But we had a great call the other night. We are working together on a lot of different things, including trade. They’re buying a lot, they’re spending a lot of money. They’re giving it to our farmers.”
