President Donald Trump suggested work on the second phase of a U.S.-China trade deal has become a low priority, saying the two nation’s relationship has been “severely damaged” by Beijing’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Trump, speaking aboard Air Force One on his way to Miami, repeated his persistent criticism that China could have done more to stop the spread of the virus, which originated in Wuhan province.
