World leaders wish Trumps well

[NFA] Domestic and world leaders, rivals and allies alike, have lined up to send their good wishes to Donald and Melania Trump after they tested positive for COVID-19.

Though some were a little less sympathetic.

Lucy Fielder reports.

Good wishes are pouring in from world leaders for the American president after he contracted COVID-19 -- from allies and rivals alike.

First among the latter camp: Donald Trump's competitor in the coming election, Joe Biden.

Who wished Trump and his wife Melania, who also tested positive, a swift recovery.

From India... to Pakistan... and Taiwan, they took to Twitter to wish Trump and Melania well.

Trump joins a number of world leaders and top politicians who've tested positive.

Britain's Boris Johnson, was the first and fought for his life back in April.

Some though expressed a little less sympathy.

NATO ally France couldn't resist a dig at Trump's past minimising of the virus threat.

A government spokesman saying: "This demonstrates that the virus spares no one, including those who have shown skepticism." And some Chinese state media couldn't hide their satisfaction that the Trumps had the disease.

They've, quote, "paid the price for his gamble to play down COVID-19," tweeted the editor in chief of China's Global Times.

On the streets, too, Trump's critics felt free to be a little less...diplomatic.

It's different when it touches you personally, says this Italian, whose country was first in Europe to be laid low by the virus.

Closer to home, protesters in Portland, Oregon weren't hiding their jubilation: "...it's like karma.

He didn't want people to start wearing masks until 200 thousand people died.."

'We want justice': Indian-Americans protest against Pakistan on 26/11 anniversary

A group of Indian-Americans and other community organisations held a memorial gathering outside the Capitol Hill for the victims of the deadly 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. A truck with a billboard, reading "We Demand Justice" was seen outside Pakistan and Turkish embassies in Washington, DC on the eve of Mumbai terror attack anniversary. Displaying anti-Pakistan banners and shouting slogans like "We want justice", the protesters on November 25 evening (Wednesday) said that twelve years have passed and Pakistan is yet to take any action on those who orchestrated the attack. Instead the prime accused live freely in Pakistan. Community activist Krishna Reddy said, "We are here on the anniversary of 26/11, when terrorists from Pakistan came to Mumbai and killed many innocent people, including six Americans as well, they just looked at the passport of the Americans and killed them. So the US intelligence knows that this has been done and controlled by Pakistani intelligence directly." "I urge the incoming administration not to give any kind of financial aid to Pakistan, nor in Afghanistan, until Pakistan takes action against the perpetrators of this crime and gives justice to those who lost lives," Krishna added. "We have gathered here today to remind the US government that it's been 12 years since the heinous act of terror was committed, I hope that the new administration takes every step possible to bring the perpetrators to justice", said another activist Mahindra Sapa. Earlier today, the Indian American group also sponsored a digital mobile billboard truck carrying "we demand justice" that was seen outside the Pakistan and Turkish embassies in DC.
