Very, very secretive. And that’s unfortunate,” he told reporters at White House press briefing. “Just so you understand, China is not a beneficiary here. China has thousands and thousands of people. China has gone through hell over this. They’ve gone through hell. I’ve had conversations with President Xi. I just wish they could have told us earlier. They knew they had a problem earlier.
