HHepplewhite America is in for a long, long period of disruption as Trump continues to make things worse, with his mishandling of the CoronavirusCrisis No amount of blaming or shifting attention is going to help him now, Chris. TrumpCoronavirusTestFailure yeah...but China won't so whatcha' goin' to do 'bout it?

China has gone too far this time. CCPVirus There is currently a joint US/China investigation. A journalist would know this. who will go to USA for enquires? Maybe China should front up to the UN and give a lecture using PowerPoint with lots of BS just like the USA would do. Trump’s looking for anyone to blame for his incompetence. People knew of this virus six months ago. It’s deadliness four months ago. Trump still hasn’t got it.

Smash him Don. I'm just wonderinghhow would the today's world leaders respond to the pandemic if it happened in Soviet Union under LeonidBrezhnev? When start blaming somebody all you are doing is highlighting your own deficiencies. If it was a financial thing thing then we should start suing the US for the GFC.

Sky news is repulsive. I really hope you go bankrupt.

This is a biological weapon and they should have restricted flights. imho they will need to answer questions.

China lied about origin of coronavirus, leaked intelligence report saysA damning dossier leaked from the “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance claims that China lied to the world about human-to-human transmission of the virus, disappeared whistleblowers and refused to hand over virus samples so the West could make a vaccine.
