Get used to hearing that incessantly until November. The economy is fundamentally sound and beware of the socialist bogeyman! HAHAHAHAHA … and I would believe this administration … why? CNN honestly the panic and fear narrative you’re pushing is stupid. There’s only like 90,000 cases worldwide and you’re trying to create public panic simply because you think it will hurt the markets and realDonaldTrump

Higher humidity will stop the spread of the cold, unfortunately will be left with the sick doomsday democrats 🧐 🔥🤬🔥 Liar: The U.S. economy is a few Chinese shipments from shutting down. Our manufacturing is parts assembly and those parts come from China. No manufacturing, no demand for oil, no wages, no demand for services... if it goes too long in China, jobs and income vanish.

Of coarse a sound economy would include a plunging stock market. When staffers quit showing up for work at the White House, do you think the Trump administration will notice? OMG! Here we go again! So, you're gonna hold China responsible for a plague that killed thousands of its' own citizens when in fact it is one of the signs promised in the scriptures, along with earthquakes, locusts, fires, floods! Get a grip, get a Bible!

Was he sober? Actually the ineptness of the coronavirus response has made investors realize Trump's administration are all incompetent liars and his 'great economy' was a house of cards. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Hey Democrats! If you’re SO worried about Coronavirus, shouldn’t we have better control over our borders to know who is coming in that might possibly have contracted this diesease and may spread it?
