Scour “All America?” According to reports, the “washing” that Trump refers to clearly refers to the “group immunization” policy proposed by Britain at that time. At first, Fuch did not understand Trump’s meaning, but after a while he reflected what Trump meant by “washing out”, he was shocked. He said: “Mr. President, many people will die in this way.” In the end, Trump dismissed this idea.
