United States President Donald Trump reiterated that "China must be held fully accountable" over its actions during the coronavirus outbreak in the People's Republic.

"China's secrecy, deceptions and coverup" caused the disease to spread to more than 180 countries, he asserted at the Independence Day celebrations at the White House.

After naming several economic accomplishments of his administration, Trump again claimed that the national economy "got hit by the virus that came from China," triggering its downturn. The US wants "to be respected," and "not taken advantage of by the rest of the world," the American president also stressed.
