WASHINGTON — China President Xi Jinping, angry that President Donald Trump has used the phrase "China virus" to describe the coronavirus pandemic, urged Trump to do more to improve relations between the world's biggest trading partners, Chinese state media reported Friday.
In an overnight phone call, Xi told Trump he hoped the United States "will take substantive actions to improve" relations between the two countries, reported China state broadcaster CCTV.
Xi also said that China wants to "continue sharing all information and experience with the U.S." to fight the global spread of coronavirus, CCTV.
Trump, who has said he uses the term "China virus" because that is where the coronavirus started, put a positive spin on the phone call with Xi, describing it as "a very good conversation."
"Discussed in great detail the CoronaVirus that is ravaging large parts of our Planet," Trump tweeted. "China has been through much & has developed a strong understanding of the Virus. We are working closely together. Much respect!"
