Donald J Trump has tanked the stock markets after offering no real substantive US stance on the COViD19 disease caused by the Corona Virus. He instead blamed (incorrectly) European lax restrictions on immigration, which literally have nothing to do with how the virus spread.
Travel restrictions were haphazardly imposed on Europe. American and European stocks tanked on the lack of concrete steps from the US. The Coronavirus is nothing like the flu, but it seems like the severity and lack of immunity to the virus worldwide is definitely not top of mind for many people who share Trump’s lack of knowledge on the topic.
