U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday that China should face unspecified consequences if it was "knowingly responsible" for the coronavirus pandemic, Reuters reported.
"If it was a mistake, a mistake is a mistake. But if they were knowingly responsible, yeah, I mean, then sure there should be consequences," Trump told reporters at a daily briefing. Trump and senior aides have sharply criticized China for a lack of transparency after the coronavirus broke out in its Wuhan province.
Trump on Saturday also continued casting doubt on China's death toll, which was revised up on Friday.
