WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump, citing his concerns about China's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, said he has not spoken with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a while and does not want to.

"I have not spoken to him in a while because I don't want to speak to him," Trump told Fox Business Network in an interview, adding that China was continuing to order U.S. goods under a U.S.-China trade deal signed in January.

The president declined to comment when asked if Xi had reached out to him.
