WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump has said he would lower the national flag in the United States for the next three days. This is the first time the country has reached one million deaths. Now more than 95,000 people in the US have died of the virus. There are more than 16 lakh people infected with the disease in the US.
I will order the National Flag to be lowered for the next three days in memory of those who have died of coronavirus at all federal buildings and national monuments, ”Trump tweeted. Earlier, Democratic leaders had called for the US flag to be lowered to half-dead. Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer have written to Trump demanding this.
In the meantime, Trump said the US could not take lightly what Corona had come from China. We don’t like the arrival of the virus from China. The virus broke out before we signed a trade agreement with them and its ink was dry. That’s not easy, Trump said at a meeting of African-American leaders in Michigan.
He also said that America would grow up to be the largest medical manufacturer in the world. America will become the world’s leading drug store. The goal is to bring drug manufacturing back to the United States. Trump said the Kovid era demonstrates the need to remain a robust manufacturing nation.
