"They have only one objective: shirk their responsibility for their own poor epidemic prevention and control measures, and divert public attention," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Geng Shuang said at a press briefing Tuesday, AFP reported.
Trump suggested he may seek damages from China over the coronavirus pandemic which began in the Chinese city of Wuhan and spread around the world, prompting a furious response from Beijing on Tuesday.
Beijing and Washington have clashed repeatedly over the outbreak as tensions have soared between the world's two biggest economic powers.
"We are not happy with China," Trump stated at a White House briefing Monday, adding, "We are not happy with that whole situation because we believe it could have been stopped at the source.
"It could have been stopped quickly and it wouldn't have spread all over the world," he said, adding that there were many options to "hold them accountable".
Trump was asked about a recent German newspaper editorial which called on China to pay Germany $165 billion in reparations because of economic damage due to the virus.
Asked if the US would consider doing the same, Trump noted, "We can do something much easier than that."
