Shortly after this broke, Trump tweeted about delaying the elections. He doesn’t have the power to do that—but with the economy collapsing, his utter incompetence combined with a propensity to use fascist tactics to hold sway over people makes me beware.
"This is obviously the ugliest quarter we’ve ever seen in our history ... A couple of weeks ago there was a lot more optimism that we would see a strong V-shaped recovery. ... And every day we don’t have a new stimulus ... is hurting the economy."
I’ve heard it many times from the oil industry, but it applies to the broader economy, too: the best thing Trump can do is get the coronavirus under control.
