China will share its data related to the novel coronavirus pandemic with the US and the country will learn from Beijing's experience, President Donald Trump has said, a day after he held an hour-long conversation with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping. Trump spoke to Xi over telephone, days after the US president angered Beijing by referring to the coronavirus as "Chinese virus" and his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said China's ruling Communist Party posed a "substantial threat" to Americans' health and their way of life.

Xi assured full support to Trump in fighting the coronavirus as America emerged as the next major epicentre of the pandemic, but underlined that infectious diseases did not recognise any border or race. "We talked about it (coronavirus) because he had additional experience of having been much earlier. And he has developed some incredible theories, and all that information is coming over here. A lot of it's already come. We call it data. And we're going to learn a lot from what the Chinese went through," Trump told reporters on Friday. Trump said he had nearly an hour-long meeting with Xi, which mostly focused on fast spreading coronavirus pandemic.

"One of the things I was asking him is when did you notice that this was happening. We talked about the whole concept, how it happened, when it happened, what was the most effective use. I mean, was it the fact was distance the best thing. We talked about everything," he said. Trump said that his Chinese counterpart had developed his own viewpoint on the escalating COVID-19 crisis. "It happened there actually long before it happen here. By the way, it would have happened here a lot sooner had we not kept those people out, the Chinese people coming over to the country, had we not kept amount," he said.
