On Friday after he and his wife screened the coronavirus enthusiastically from international capitals, President Donald Trump had no sympathy for a leader whose approach to the pandemic has been heavily criticized.

In Israel and Taiwan, two governments which cherish their friendship with the USA, the warmth and consideration for Trump was more abundant.
"Seeing President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, like the million of the Israelis, Sara and I would like to wish our friends a complete and fast recovery," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, referring to his wife, posted.
