President Donald Trump has been attempting to blame China for his ineffective response to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

For decades, Locke was a prominent American politician.

He served as ambassador to China and Secretary of Commerce during the Obama administration. Before that, he served two terms as the governor of Washington. Prior to that, he served as executive for the largest county in the state.
