United States President Donald Trump believes this summer’s XXXII Olympic Games, Tokyo 2020, should be postponed by a year.
President Trump, who spoke last week about what should happen with this summer’s Olympics, said: “I would say maybe they postpone it for a year”.
He also added: “I like that better than having empty stadiums all over the place.”
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis has caused several uncertainties around the world. Several travel bans, event cancellations and restrictions on public gathering have been imposed across the world.
To date, just under 254,682 confirmed cases worldwide and 10,442 deaths.
On Thursday (19 March), Trump speaking at a press conference, said Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has not decided whether to postpone the event.
Trump said the Japanese Prime Minister communicated the news to the Group of Seven (G-7) leaders at a video conference earlier this week.
Trump said of the message communicated by Abe.
“He has told us that he has not made a decision as to what to do.”
“And we don’t know what his decision is, but we would live with his decision.
“It’s a tough situation. They’ve done an incredible job. Japan has done an incredible job on building the venues — getting them built,” said Trump.
The Olympics are scheduled to run from 24 July to 9 August.
