U.S. Working ‘Closely’ With China on Virus Response, Trump Says

(Bloomberg) -- The U.S. is working “closely” with China to help with responding to the coronavirus, President Donald Trump said in a series of tweets, in which he also praised China’s leader Xi Jinping for “strongly” leading the country’s response to the threat.

Trump said he’d had a “long and very good conversation” with Xi by phone and that his counterpart’s response is “strong, sharp and powerfully focused,” according to a post.

He also said warmer weather would “hopefully” lead to the virus becoming weaker, “and then gone.”
