US President Donald Trump has warned that he could 'cut off the whole relationship' with China, in the latest escalation of US tensions with Beijing as he increasingly blames China for the global spread of the coronavirus, reported London's Financial Times.

'There are many things we could do,' he told Fox News.'We could cut off the whole relationship. Now if you did, what would happen? You??d save US$500 billion.'



It was unclear what that figure represented. The president has in recent weeks intensified his criticism of the Chinese government over the way it handled the disclosure of the virus, and has suggested that Beijing would be forced to pay a price.



President Trump did not explain what he meant by cutting off ties. But some officials want him to remove Chinese companies from US supply chains. Pressed on how he could force US companies to move their supply chains, Trump told Fox. 'One incentive, frankly, is to charge tax for them when they make product outside.'??
