Book reveals that Trump suggested sending Americans returning from Asia with Covid-19 to Guantanamo – Mundo

A book by two Washington Post journalists claims that former US President Donald Trump has proposed sending Americans returning from Asia with covid-19 to the Guantanamo base in Cuba.

The authors, Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta, wrote that Trump suggested the idea twice in February last year, when the World Health Organization (WHO) had not yet declared the covid-19 pandemic and known cases of the new SARS coronavirus -CoV-2 were concentrated in the Asian continent.

“Do we not own an island? Why not Guantanamo? We import goods, we are not going to import a virus,” said the former president, during a meeting in the White House crisis room, with advisers and officials.
