Following his telephonic conversation with China’s President Xi Jinping on Friday, US President Donald Trump took to Twitter, expressing his take on the conversation about the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump tweeted: "Just finished a very good conversation with President Xi of China. Discussed in great detail the CoronaVirus that is ravaging large parts of our Planet. China has been through much & has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect!"
The optimistic tone deduced from President Trump’s comments, as he now says ‘CoronaVirus’ instead of the Chinese virus, seems to have virtually no impact on the market sentiment.
