"Some politicians completely disregard basic facts and have fabricated too many lies targeting China, and plotted too many conspiracies". "In the battle against COVID-19, China and Africa have again stood by each other", Wang said on the sidelines of the third session of the 13th National Peoples Congress (NPC), the country's annual legislative session.
"If you want to infringe upon China's sovereignty and dignity with indiscriminate litigation, and extort the fruits of the hard work of the Chinese people, I am afraid this is a daydream and you'll only humiliate yourself".
Last week, Trump said that he does not want to talk to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping right now, indicating his displeasure at the Chinese leadership's handling of the coronavirus outbreak which has now spread across the world.
He also said lawsuits launched in the USA trying to seek compensation from China over damages from Covid-19 have "zero basis in fact, law or worldwide precedence".
Wang took a swipe at the United States, which alleges that the World Health Organization takes a pro-China stance.
On Sunday, Wang said the suggestion that U.S. states could bring legal action against China was "a daydream" and lacked any precedent.
But he called for co-operation between Washington and Beijing in tackling the outbreak.
During the conference, Wang criticized efforts by U.S. politicians to "fabricate rumors" about COVID-19's origins to "stigmatize China".

He said China was "open" to global cooperation to identify the source of the novel coronavirus, but stressed that any investigation must be "free of political interference".

Foreign policy experts both within and outside China have criticised these diplomats, pointing out that the aggressive attitude has only served to strain ties further with the United States and affected Beijing's worldwide image.
"Reunification between the two sides of the Strait is an inevitable trend of history, no one and no force can stop it", Wang said. "There was some intent to balance his comments".
"China has no intention to change, still less replace, the US. There is imperative to compete as well as cooperate", he said.
Wang added that with help from China and the rest of the world, the youthful continent of Africa will achieve greater and faster development after defeating COVID-19.
"Don't waste precious time any longer, and don't ignore lives", Wang said.
"China will continue to view Asean as a high priority in its neighbourhood diplomacy and support Asean centrality in East Asian cooperation", he said, adding that Beijing was in discussions to resume talks with Asean on a code of conduct in the South China Sea.
