America and Chinese tensions got worse over the weekend after White House trade advisor Peter Navarro suggested in a “This Week” interview that Beijing sent “hundreds of thousands of Chinese on aircraft to Milan, New York and around the world” to spread the virus after hiding it from the world for two months.
