Trump thanks Cambodia over ship in rare message to China-ally

Recommended Posts

SIHANOUKVILLE: US President Donald Trump has thanked Cambodia for taking in the castaway cruise ship MS Westerdam in a rare message to a country that is one of China's closest allies and has often been at odds with Washington.

 

Five countries turned away the Westerdam, worried its passengers could be carrying the coronavirus despite it having no known cases before Cambodia's authoritarian prime minister, Hun Sen, agreed the passengers could disembark there.

 

"Thank you to the beautiful country of Cambodia for accepting the @CarnivalCruise ship Westerdam into your port. The United States will remember your courtesy," Trump tweeted late on Friday (Feb 14).

Competent medical facilities really do not exist in Cambodia. I'm afraid that they allowed the ship to dock there simply for the money it would bring in thru docking fees and expected tourism related income. They have zero ability to monitor those people, or to help them. Sad.

I'm thinking Hun Sen is taking delivery of a shiny new Mercedes today.

And what about that eloquent POTUS? Obviously no speech writer for him.

Trump may not be so happy, now that one American couple have been tested positively - twice, now that his 300 are in the US and hundreds more are spread all over the world.

Great idea Hun Sen and Mr Trump!
