On the issue of Coronavirus outbreak in China, US President Donald Trump said the coronavirus epidemic will soon be brought under control as China has been working very hard. Addressing Indian CEOs, Trump said the US plans to spend about USD 2.5 billion in fighting the deadly coronavirus.
"China is working very very hard, I have spoken to President Xi they are working very hard. They had a rough patch and right now it seems they are getting it under control, they are getting it more and more under control so I think it is a problem that is going to go away," Trump said.
Asserting that the situation in the US is under control, Trump said the US also does business with other nations and wants other countries to be "happy healthy and well".
