Second Time Is The Charm

Last year’s Samsung Galaxy Fold technically wasn’t the first folding phone to hit the market. A Chinese brand named Royole had beaten Samsung to the punch by months. Huawei, too, launched a foldable around the same time the Fold hit retailers last fall.

Watch live: World leaders speak at U.N. General Assembly debate

Sept. 22 (UPI) — In a recorded address Tuesday at the 75th U.N. General Assembly, U.S. President Donald Trump slammed China for its response to COVID-19 in the early weeks of the pandemic.

“The Chinese government and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” Trump said. “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions.”

China’s U.N. ambassador, Zhang Jun, said his country’s leadership “resolutely rejects the baseless accusations against China. Zhang introduced Chinese President Xi Jinping’s pre-recorded statement to the U.N. General Assembly.

“The world is at a crossroads. At this moment, the world needs more solidarity and cooperation, but not confrontation,” Zhang said.

Again calling it the “China virus,” Trump declared that
