Trump dismisses Gates' COVID-19 response criticism

United States President Donald Trump slammed billionaire Bill Gates for criticizing his administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak, including the travel restrictions on China.

Asked about Gates' claims that the travel restrictions likely accelerated the spread of the virus, Trump responded that his administration was "very careful" and the move was praised by everybody, even those who initially opposed it such as top US epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Fauci and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Trump added during a phone interview with Fox & Friends that he believes comments made by Gates will become a "new Dem talking point" when criticizing his administration.
