On March 18, the S&P 500 index tumbled 7%, triggering yet another circuit
breaker and a 15-minute trading halt, also as ridiculed by netizens as “
Trump Circuit Breaker”. This was the fourth time that the US stock market
had triggered a circuit breaker since March 9, and the fifth meltdown in the
history of US stocks. As of this writing, the Dow has officially erased all
the gains minted during the Trump presidency.
The Fed’s zero interest rate (ZIRP) and quantitative easing policies have
also failed to ease the mounting anxieties about the future of the U.S.
economy. Even Mr. Warren Buffett has lost hope on witnessing “miracles”,
but just wants to live smoothly to his 90s.
The stock market's roller coaster was directly related to COVID-19. More
than 19,000 cases have been diagnosed and 260 people have died. Meanwhile,
only this number is growing steadily.
In South Korea, where the first case was reported on the same day as the
United States, the number of new cases has decreased significantly than
before, showing signs of curbing the outbreak. “This damn bastard!” Trump
may have been restless in the round office of the White House, not even a
glimpse of blooming tulips in the garden.
In a tweet he posted on March 17, Trump pointedly called COVID-19 the “
Chinese virus” when the pandemic has already spread out more than 150
countries. “Together we will stay strong and overcome this challenge!” he
wrote, “The United States will be powerfully supporting those industries,
like airlines and others, that are particularly affected by the Chinese
virus. We will be stronger than ever before!” Blaming China alone for the
pandemic is a cover-up strategy of the Trump administration to pass the
blame for the coronavirus outbreak in the US.
In a later tweet Trump talked about how US states were being affected,
saying: “Some are being hit hard by the Chinese Virus, some are being hit
practically not at all.” He wanted to deepen people's paranoia and
ridiculous impression of the “China virus”, thereby blaming China for the
spread of the new coronavirus in the United States and for the stock market
crash. To this end, he provoked racial discrimination and got the Chinese
Americans into a dangerous situation. Because it was much easier for Trump
to blame other countries than to take responsibility.
When NBC reporter Kristen Welker asked Trump whether he would take
responsibility for the lag in making test kits available to the public.
Trump answered, “No. I don’t take responsibility at all”. But this doesn
’t seem convincing. The coronavirus crisis now poses a direct existential
threat to Trump, endangering his re-election and huge legacy, no matter that
he said his test result was negative. But his daughter, Ivanka, the
executive vice president in the Trump Organization, chose to work from home
“with due care” and emphasized “not self-isolation”. And Trump once
implied, “Melania wouldn’t cry if he got shot”.
Earlier, Trump told his senior advisers that the coronavirus would be a
major issue in the election. He apparently noticed the clear and serious
tone adopted by his rival Joe Biden during the Democratic debate on March 15
. Democrats wanted to use this complex coronavirus to make cheap political
gains.Trump seemed uncomfortable as Biden appeared in front of the camera.
Of course, the republican party itself is gearing up. 54% of Republican
congressmen hope that China will pay for, or pay at least part of, global
coronavirus costs. Rep. Jim Banks has put it bluntly, saying “The president
could institute tariffs on China and designate the funds from that into a
coronavirus victim relief fund to pay the cost incurred on Americans and
American taxpayers due to the negligence on China’s behalf that’s led to
the crisis in America today.”
According to a pro-Republican poll, the American people were very afraid of
being restricted by China in the purchase of ventilator and anti-epidemic
drugs, because they found that more than 90% of antibiotics and other
pharmaceutical raw materials were in the hands of China. The United States’
efforts to fight the cornavirus might not work without China’s assistance.
Additionally, Secretary of State Mike Pompe had previously described the
coronavirus as “Wuhan virus” and wanted to put pressure on Beijing, but
this was countered by Mr. Zhao Lijian, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign
Ministry, who posted the following on Twitter:“CDC was caught on the spot.
When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are
the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to
Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”
The most annoying thing was that he actually mentioned the Fort Derick
This topic is extremely sensitive. The Fort Derick Laboratory is the
largest biochemical weapon base in the United States and the Army ’s top
secret medical institute for infectious diseases. As for why it was closed
in July last year, and then in August there was an outbreak of “e-cigarette
disease” with the same symptoms as COVID-19, which killed more than 10,000
people, and there were five U.S. military contestants participating in the
Military World Games in October who went to a local hospital for medical
treatment due to “acute infectious disease” and then were urgently
returned by U.S. military aircraft. No follow-up news. WHO failed to find
the source of the clue? None of the above can approve that the United States
is the origin of COVID-19, because the CDC was unable to dissect and
compare cases of “e-cigarette” deaths in August last year. A large number
of English-language news reports about the closure of Fort Detrick
Laboratory were also deleted in March.
So Trump is very confident, even though there was one petition on the White
House petition website asking for the “real reason” to close Fort Detrick
Laboratory. But it’s gone, because it was said that after many people
petitioned, only 500 signatures were displayed, which was far from 100,000
Concealing the epidemic is very common in the United States. “The New York
Times” once broke the news last April that there were outbreaks of Candida
auris, a super pathogen, more than 600 cases occurred, and the fatality rate
was extremely high. Nearly half of the patients died within 90 days of
infection, mostly people with low immunity such as the elderly and people
with chronic diseases. The matter was just covered up by the government and
the CDC for fear of causing panic among the people.
However, it was fine after being uncovered, because London too broke out in
2015 and had not been reported. And most importantly, the bacterium was
found in the ear canal of a 70-year-old Japanese female patient in 2009.
Even if attacked, Trump would say that it is “Japanese super pathogen” and
the United States is the victim.
So “stigmatizing” China is just a trick for Trump to maintain his “
political correctness” and divert domestic pressure, even if criticism from
home and abroad is so fierce. The WHO commented, “The virus has no
national borders, and it does not distinguish race color and wealth. The
H1N1 pandemic began in North America, and we did not call it the North
American influenza.” China's Xinhua News Agency condemns, “Using racist
and xenophobic names to cast blame for the outbreak on other countries can
only reveal politicians’ irresponsibility and incompetence”. New York City
Mayor Bill de Blasio responded, “Our Asian community-the people you serve-
is already suffering. They don't need you to cheer.” A Chinese netizen
evaluated Trump and his supporters in Chinglish -“Right your mother right".
Trump certainly poured scorn on this, although he couldn’t understand what
she meant. He was more concerned about his votes. He believes that such
political claims of narrow nationalism and neo-unilateralism as “United
States First” and “Keeping the United States Strong” can not only bring a
sense of security to the domestic public, but also draw votes, even though
he was warned that COVID-19 could cause major unemployment, with the
unemployment rate reaching 20%. Trump did the same. He wanted to make a
German company to provide the vaccine to the United States only, and had a
friendly contact with the company in private. But at the G7 meeting that
followed, allies assailed him for this behavior and forced him to issue a
joint statement. “By acting together, we will work to resolve the health
and economic risks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and set the stage for a
strong recovery of strong, sustainable economic growth and prosperity.”
Today, some members of Congress in the United States are also infected.
Trump is considering having another press conference, because first of all
he has to tell everyone that he is still alive and that he will still give
his job full marks.
So he called his own make-up artist to make his face retouched. It is said
that Mr. Trump likes tanning the bed. Although the bags around his eyes are
white, the orange skin looks younger and more energetic. Besides, if he
often changes his face, or even fails to show his true face, how can we
Finally Trump stood on the podium, saying “God bless America!”
