Already responded to China in different ways: Trump on Chinese sanctions

US President Donald Trump on Monday said that the US "has already responded" in many ways to the sanctions posed by Beijing on American officials and added that phase-1 deal with China means "very little". Trump told reporters here. He asserted that China should not have allowed the global spread of COVID-19. Trump further went on to say that China is treated "way more differently" than the US. Speaking about the Iran and US deal, the US President said, "Iran would make a deal with the US within a month if he wins the elections in November". However, with regard to a deal with China, he said that Washington "may not want" to have a deal with Beijing.
