Hard Times Ahead As Coronavirus Worsens

S&P 500 earnings set to plunge as the coronavirus batters all sectors - with Wall Street counting on a bounce that may not come

I saw that he wore a mask previously when he visited an auto plant but didn't do it when he was around the workers. Glad he finally put one on now, it only took him months after everyone else.

it was a hospital visit so it makes sense.

The Trump administration has denied a request by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz (D) for $16 million in federal aid to help rebuild widespread damage in Minneapolis caused by rioters protesting the death of George Floyd.

I'd suggest taking the cognitive function test again. It's likely he paid someone else to take it, just like his SATs.

Glad somebody on his staff explained to him that the Cofefe-19 mask is worn over the nose and mouth, rather than over the eyes as he has been doing.

I used to have some respect for Mueller, but he can suck it. The guy spent millions of our taxpayer money on a big fat nothing burger. Adam Schiff and the DNC should foot the bill for that farce, one of many farces brought against a duly-elected president and his staff at taxpayer expense.

He was at a military hospital and followed protocol just like he did at Ford awhile back.

Watching msm makes you stupid.

PS Mueller should be shot by firing squad right after fauxi

Trump lied; Americans died. 131,445 dead and rising. No end in sight. Send the kiddos back to school and watch exponential children and parent infection. Many parents will become ill quickly. Some will die. WINNING!

All the stupid people are falling for China's plan to destroy our economy with COVID-19 and get Trump out of office. China wants their buddy Biden in office so they can find another presidential patsy to easily push around. What a bunch of suckers who probably think WWE is real.

Trump shut down the Chinese flights with Chinese citizens on them, saving millions of lives as he was called a racist for it by Biden and others. Nancy Pelosi was telling people to party in Chinatown at about the same time.

^^^ Trump didn't cancel a single flight from China or anywhere else. Not one.

Cult members repeating Dear Leaders lies doesn't convince anyone not already drunk on the MAGA Kool-aid.

Good luck with that chuds.

Hmmmm @5:05 - the last twenty-five years... that takes us back to 1995, so we're talking about the last two years Clinton was in Office, then four years of Bush II, then eight years of Obama, then four years of Trump.

One good thing... let's see... how about...

Stabilized the Economy after the two Recessions and a pointless unsuccessful War during the previous Administration.

Established trade relationships that greatly benefited the US Economy, while Congress ran around in circles with its hair on fire.

Restored the Economy after a (Depr)Recession that did more damage to the Middle Class than anything since Reagan's Big Crash.

Hunted down and killed Osama Bin Lauden.

Oh, and IMPEACHED and incompetent Asshole!

Any Democrat who listened to Biden debate during the Democrat campaign should be scared to fucking death of him debating Trump.

We nominated an establishment do-nothing with dementia and too many of us can't see that. We're no better than the Trumpbots.

^^^^And yet we're not scared of a debate, and most of us would vote for an inanimate object before we'd vote for the orange buffoon. Weird.
