US President Trump called the coronavirus "mean" and "nasty" in a pre-recorded statement at the virtual UK-hosted Global Vaccine Summit on Thursdsay.
"As the coronavirus has shown there are no borders, it doesn't discriminate, it's mean, it's nasty but we're going to all take care of it together," Trump said, reports the CNN.
"It's great to be partnering with you, we will work hard, we will work strong. Send my regards to Boris and good luck. Let's get the answer," he added.
Referring to summit host, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Trump said he "called he said 'do you think you could do something maybe around the oval office or right by the oval office?' I said why not, it happens to be right behind me."
