US President Donald Trump said in a statement that the World Bank should stop lending money to Beijing because China has sufficient resources.
On December 3, Trump said China has become a very powerful country thanks to US money.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry later declared Donald Trump's statements absurd.
Why is the World Bank loaning money to China? Can this be possible? China has plenty of money, and if they don't, they create it. STOP!

"Our people have achieved success with their hard work and thanks to their wisdom, hard work, diligence and courage," said Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying.
The trade war between the world's two largest economies began in March 2018, when the United States imposed the first round of tariffs on Chinese exports. Beijing responded to the imposed tariffs and taxed US products.
